Anyone Retouch My Face?

EDIT: SO I'VE UPLOADED two RAW files. Download and edit however you like but be creative. I would really like to see the Dragan effect applied to the picture of my old man.

LINK FOR RAW:

I see a lot of great pictures from everyone but I'm more specificaly interested on seeing what an actual expert can do with my photo to see true potential because I understand there is still room for improvement in my photoshop skills...

I'm interested in MAINLY seeing D&B techniques done to the face but also interested in things like the Jill Greenberg, Dragan and all that good stuff I keep seeing on the forums.

So I just wanted to see if anyone would be willing? If so I'll take a self-portrait and upload the raw tonight...

I'm hoping there is not cost involved but if there is a small one, I don't mind paying (if you're a reputable retoucher here).

Re: Anyone Retouch My Face?

Making a standard self-portrait look like Dragan's or Greenberg's images could be nearly impossible, as long as you don't work with the lights as they do.
But anyways, post your portrait here, probably many will take it as a nice practice :-)

Don't know, but allowing portfolio use could also make some more people interested, but you have to think carefully about that.

Meh I don't mind!

I just want to see some of the pros here.
I'm almost done my take on it, so I will once I finish.

Well I have seen average photos turned very gritty similar to dragan style for example:

But when I do it it doesn't turn out that well and I'm guessing because of the D&B part of the tutorial.

Yer Ol Man made Grungy... (Grungy = Not even close to Dragan or the others!!)

I thought he looked more outdoorsy rather than a back alley type

I think you used too much of the high-pass filter ^^
