You got to understand light to use d&b in a right way. In your photo there is a light source on the right side, there should not be shadow on the right side of models face. When you generate highlites and shadows, you can manipulate those with d&b just increasing lighter areas. Dont create new shadows, just manipulate existing ones. But mainly your photo is closer than 90% of this thread photos.

And these are only my opinions, not absolute facts.

yes, you're right. this shadow on the face is wrong. i tried desperately to make a shadow on the side, and thats the effect: it looks wrong and not good.

His style may look like a lot off people in the ninetys but he was the first.
