My latest attempt.

I have had a go at retouching this image using a few new techniques and skills i have picked up over the past few months from this and other forums.

I have tried to create a slightly dramatic image and appreciate the eyes may well be slightly over the top however it was my first attempt at this certain technique.

Comments and improvement advice would be much appreciated.

Re: My latest attempt.

I like most of what you did here. I think kapalika is right. I would add that you might reduce saturation a few points overall, (no more then -10). The eyes seem fake to me, you have to remember that eyes also have gradients in brightness. Tone them down a bit.

Also, on women you mostly want to de-emphasize the neck muscles (D&B).

Lastly, (subjective) I think the original and the final are a bit warm.
