Actually, I think if I were ever to submit this photo for critique on RTP, I think I'd be called on the two gentlemen's head shadows on the wall.

Like I could ever process like this.

May be I see something others don't see, or may be my vision is blurred. But the faces are way over processed, I would not call this "Style", sorry, he is trying to invent a style, "push" a style. Now, Dave Hill is style, Dragan is style, others are style, but this, is nothing short of someone trying to shoe-horn a style. Just my 2 Cents.

If you dont like the style, thats another matter.
I don't think it's ugly, but no flaws at all?

Kim's eyes read poorly. Lamar Odom barely resembles himself. And do you like the placement of the hotspot on Bruce Jenner's face? Got milk?

Of course I'm nitpicking, overall it's very stylized and "cool". It draws me in and I enjoy looking at it, so it's certainly successful.

Its a matter of opinion really, I personally like them, yes they are overdone, but if that's his style so be it.

Too fake looking for my taste too, but I think that's the look they were after. What is more distracting in that image is that all three women in the middle have same pose with left hand on their waste.

Re: Personaly, I think this is UGLY - Kardashian x

Agreed with OP. Personally I think it's ugly and a bad photoshop job (the noses on some people look almost-non-existant), style or not. I checked out the other images on the artist's site and they don't look nearly half as bad as the Kardashian xmas image... So at least imo; it's not a style. Maybe the client wanted it that way but again to me it looks terrible. But it's just an opinion really, so take it how you will.

No, Bruce Jenner ALREADY looked like that!

Some hip reduction on the girls might be in order though, unless that's accepted as part of their charm...

Re: Personaly, I think this is UGLY - Kardashian x

the curves on those girls are famous, I wouldnt be retouching those.

a couple of the faces do look a fraction overdone to my liking too, but i love the overall processing and look of it.

Just remember, its all about personal preference and what we like personally. You will never please everyone.

Here in this picture all the characters lose thier naturality. It looks like the style is pre planned. I dont know what is the reason behid this but i think it can be better.

I think the photoshop is a bit over the top but quite like the set up, lighting and 3d type feel to it all.
