Not particularly a fan of toon/caricature style, but it looks like good work smile

Do you offer this as a commonly understood distinction?

still fun! it's creepy enough to look very cool.
not very fresh approach  -- but excellent attention to details, poses and looks very funny. I think it was a lot of work!

I think the point is to impress ad agencies.
I can see the possibility of an ad campaign..... buy that soft top sports car and release the inner child in you.

It's impressive retouching in a nifty gimmick that is the sort of thing ad campaigns are made of. I can see this retoucher going places.

He already has. 

Take a look at his other work. I've had many of his images in my "inspiration" folder for a while now to study.

Cristian is very very good.

I don't think it's being "unpleasant" to ask you to clarify something that isn't clear.

You drew the odd distinction (between manipulating and retouching) in a public forum. I think the clarification should be done in the same forum.

I don't see anything brilliant about bloating heads and compressing bodies. Anyone can do that. Even me.

At the risk of going against the grain, I love the images. They are done very well and show a certain amount of wry humour in their execution. Horses for courses and all that....

It's an interesting concept and some fun editing. I bet the models were more impressed than anyone.

Although I'm not really in love with the images.

for this kind of work a retoucher have to study the bone proportion of the child, it's impossible to achieve the same result reducing the body size and making "big head with big eyes" big_smile

for heavy manipulation, christian is one of my favourities, the other is Rodney Pike:

some 3dppl take images of a real person's en face, profile and astern, and then wrap the gotten texture around an uniformed dummy figure in 3D software. if it's Genesis*-based, you can easily transform adult into child seamlessly, and more, you can make a person more chubby, skinny, pregnant, humpbacked, bodybuilder's type, of another sex, whatever, by just one click of a button, or gradually sliding many available controls. EVERYTHING STAYS ANATOMICALLY CORRECT. it sounds more complicated than it really is. importantly, it does pay back by having the total freedom varying positions, aspect angles and lighting and coming up with a lot of different images (more than you can possibly need). this approach is used a lot in advertizement or prototypes for very realistic games.

*"The Genesis series allows for a virtually limitless set of additional figure shape variations that can all be built from a common base. These variations can range in both size and proportion while maintaining a common joint system (rigging)."

so far, photoshop has very embrionic support for 3D, unfortunately, but it's used to polish the intermediate 2D maps and surfaces just a little bit, or adding some effects at the final production stage, just slightly.

My impression of retouching is to not to show any signs of touching the image. In this case other then the obvious cartoonish adaptation, the work is clean and well comprised. Aside from that, it's a lot more over the top then I care for.

you're missing the point.  he didn't just blow up their heads.  he _aged_ them younger.  that's a whole different league of retouching from what you do.

I was very impressed from the point-of-view of a showcase of skill. I admire Peano's understanding of retouching in general. In this case, I agree with moving pictures that he's doing something more skilled that bloating heads and compressing bodies. A nice way to grab attention.

Agreed. Rodney Pike is definitely one of my favorite caricature artist on the net.
