Retouching Novice

This is as far as I have gotten with this photo. Smart Blur foreground > Gaussian blur B\G > Liquefy on eyes and corners of the mouth trying to coax a smile from what was a scowl. It still looks to severe. Would it do better as a painting?

Re: Retouching Novice

to me the eyes don't look quite right.... and I would use a portrait crop instead of landscape mode (unless this is just a sample crop of a larger image)

a before and after might help garner some better suggestions
