This was the hardest thing I have ever done in PS! :glasses: Was like a big puzzle/maze to get through all the steps and in no way can I list them! It was mostly just painting in all the missing parts with a roller ball. (gotta get a Wacom tablet soon!) I did however have some body part donners! The hair is my son's, the eyes are my daughters and his ear is my brother in law's! LOL :lol:

Thanks, Doug, for picking this one out :classic:

My worst problem was trying to figure out his age and then contouring his face to bring out age lines, etc.
