BTW, I used a different photo just to see if it was a universal technique.

thanks again Nancy, learning alot today.
Nicely Done, if its too blurry, adjust the sharpening or dont smooth the skin as much.

Channel composing is a very good field for experiment, when you need an unusual appearence of your picture. This one is Red with multiply option and green with soft light, sharp, dodge/burn. Very quick

@shellby
YOU'RE GREAT
That's what I am looking for, although the eyes might be a bit to white. I love the skin, the sharpness. Perfect!
Willing to share your technique?

@crex
I don't know if that's a public gallery or something, but if you are going to use my photo please add my name. I don't really mind people using my photos as long as I get the credit for taking the shot.
So something like : Photography : Gerard Henninger (link to website) Retouching : <your name>

Hope you understand.

And thanks for your great edit. Now, how did you do that?

BTW, I have more samples of Lisette if anyone wants to try to achieve this effect on a different photo. Just in case you guys/gals get bored with this one.

UPDATE :
It's the Dragan/Jim Ficus effect I am looking for. More the Ficus effect. Been reading posts on other forums and searched this forum again and found out that those photographers/retouchers's style is wat I am looking for.

Tried another time with the new tips I found (see attached image).
What do you think? Oversharpened? To much contrast?
Oh and in real-life I am not that scary

I used 2 green channels and 1 blue channel in Luminosity mode. Then I used another Channel Mixer adjustment layer to create a black & white version of the image that I liked. Then I lowered the opacity of that layer to about 45%.

After that it was just some healing, cloning, selective blurring, etc. I also used the High Radius Low Amount technique to sharpen it.

Hope that helps!

FYI, The small radius USM is for sharpening. The large radius USM is for clarification/local contrast enhancement. It's similar to the clarify filter in Paintshop Pro.

Technique

I used the Blur / Sharpen method outlined here, and discussed in a previous thread:

http://tutorials.smugmug.com/gallery/1169397/1

I also changed the background colour to match the sample image you provided. I coloured her skin using a gold colour with the pain brush set to COLOUR. Whites of eyes done with curves (you could back that off a bit)
