Hi Shane,

I'm sorry to say, that you have a lot of information missing in this photo. You are going to have to get a bit creative to bring much back a lot of the detail to these faces. If you have any other photos with a better look of the faces, that would be helpful in reconstructing these faces.

This is a very rough example with borrowed parts with an emphasis on the rough. Dave Cox is very correct in his analysis of this picture. Also, is the original on a textured paper? I ran this through an FFT filter.

Very nice work dc, but (sorry about this but) I would be very careful in not creating crossed-eyes.

Re: help please

I don't do much of this type of work. Could you be a little more specific what is not correct? I may have gotten the incorrect look by using and doing a horizontal flip of the right eye.

Thanks,

dc

Re: help please

The horizontal flip is perfect. I would move the iris & pupil to the left a bit, to eliminate the crossed-eyes look.
