Question Dragan and/or Fiscus Style

Hi everyboy.

Mi son wants to have a picture from him in the Dragan and/or Fiscus Style. Is there anybody here who can help us? I have made a picture from him at my studio.

Re: Dragan and/or Fiscus Style

here is my rough try...made in 10min...haven't done any skin retouch...just adding light and background...didn't have any good backgrounds, so I ended up with a picture taken from an urban street somewhere(free stock at www.scx.hu)

LOL... cheers.

The one I did took about 15 minutes.

First thing first was to replace the background by masking out the grey backdrop and letting the graffiti show through.

Then I used these two tutorials, in this order.

Lucis Arts Emulation

and then

Amy Dresser Technique (method 1, method 4 and finally method 5)

@ superkoax: I tweeked the effect on the ear and reloaded the file here.
The large version link (above) now points to the new version.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Maybe later I'll try the true Fiscus style which will take longer than 15 minutes.
