it's too small to see what the texture looks like, unless you mean the yellow streaks...

it looks like a grunge brush texture, and then the emboss filter was possibly used before it was mapped onto the face...

That's CG. It usually achieves by using a bunch of different maps, such as bump map, specular map, diffuse map, color map, and normal map. A nice 3D program with a nice renderer and then some post work in PS.

Yes, but not for a living...I wish, though. I have a BFA in 2D/3D computer animation. I moved to L.A to find 3D work, but man...it's insanity. So, I retouch to pay the rent. Right now, I'd consider myself more of a retoucher with a strong background in 3D than an animator.

To me it's the competitiveness of the field. There are just too many people with the same skill sets coming from all over the place trying to get the same thing. It's more luck than talent unless the stuff in your demo reel is 'lord of the ring' quality. Then again, how many college grads are able to produce that kind of quality with a home computer? I can't believe not a single person I've talked to all these years at parties or in bars was actually from L.A. It's really not that disappointing, though. Most of my friends made it in the industry and are doing some amazing stuff. At least now I have some connections. I just need to work on my demo reel. I can always resort to internship, but the cost of living is too high out here if you don't live at home.
