Dragan Retouch....

Hey guys and gals.
I thought it would be fun to see how everyones skills are at the "dragan" technique. For those who don't know what this is examples can be found at http://andrzejdragan.com/ . I love this technique , I don't think I would use it in anything I do but its sure dramatic and fun to admire. Good luck ;o))

Not sure I'd call that a "Dragan".
Although the technique calls for heightening the texture of the skin the idea is to get a portrait with a lot of "character".
In this image it seems that the intent was only to amplify all the defects - which ends up more "creepy" than "character".

The technique has already been discussed at length in these forums - please do a search for "Dragan".
