help with tattoo-lady

hey,

i'm following this forum a while now and learned a lot from you pro's!

I'm having difficulties with this tattooed lady (attached file). I want to make some retouches (I'm deeply inspired by http://www.davehillphoto.com/), but for some reason i cant start with this picture OK ok, some basic retouching, but all the dodge and burning, with this one i can not make something 'special', only some basic stuff....
When i D&B, the skin becomes red, and, i never can to get that 'crispy airbrushed' look..

Anyone help please?

thanks!
York

Thought I'd have a go at this one, but still very shy of the desired goal. Predominantly used a gradient map and an emboss layer.

Re: help with tattoo-lady

I couldn't resist playing with this one too

The David Hill site just floored me what amazing work...!
So here's my efforts on this exotic lady
I discovered the histogram equalizer, what amazing effects you can get playing with it!

I think, it could be used "Photomatix Pro" to create an HDR image.

Re: help with tattoo-lady

Dave Hill... fab. He uses a mixture of HDR, tonemapping and what looks to be a little of Lucis Arts plugins. I'll have a go tonight. It'll be my first image post that way.
