Really nice model.
Actually I got it from a free stock pics site. SXU I think. So feel free to use to your hearts content. :-)

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

Hi All, I appreciate that this post is about working your own magic but with a quick churn through the Topaz 3 filter "detailed" followed by "portrait drama" and a gold colour layer set to hue, I got this result. Once again this is filtered not my own graft, how does it fair?

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

I'm use the LUM algorithm filter for Dragan Effect

In Luminosity channel (in LAB) use the LUM, after use Dodge&Burn technique.

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

My attempt on the Dragon using Dak's photo.....

Mostly, just creating masked contrast layers and blending with different light modes (soft light, hard light, multiply etc).
