Question Re: Retouch challenge - Male headshot

Funkcanna, make sure you image is 100k or below.


Here's what I came up with - took me about five hours. If the actor was the draw for this product/movie/commercial, then I wouldn't have changed his facial construction so heavily. I retouched as if it were all about the character, and the model is just a means to an end. Obviously, it's silly to alter a person so heavily when the picture is supposed to display them, like in a portrait or headshot.

Lately I've trying to put more narrative into my retouching, but this one didn't go as planned. I had intended for it to be a cool, secret agent meeting. Probably because of my lack of "agent" props (gun, suitcase, ect), the scene has a certain... how should I put this? She looks like she's about to "make some money." Or am I just crazy?

The two stocks I used came from Deviantart.
