whats going on here? how?

I'm trying to figure out how they got the painty feel in the face.
Also all of the Erwin Olaf images have the same thing

nobody has yet been able to tell me how this is done..
can anybody here?

Re: whats going on here? how?

the short answer is: Nothing there really, come to think of it, nothing special at all
the long answer: color & texture:
Color: nothing there that Selective color cant do, just play around, you may need to adjust blending mood and/or opacity. done
Texture: even more simple, it looks to me like that Nik guy smoothing using the clone tool or similar technique, I mean, you can use "smudge", very, very light, or some sort of controlled/painted "Gaussian bluer", but I would say any cheesy smoothing technique will do.

Post nice sized picture, I will show you how.

VERY curious how you mean smudging is done.

Re: whats going on here? how?

here's another example too.. of Erwin Olaf.
enlarge the photo and you can see the 'painty' feel..

Do I get the barging rights on the retouch? I would eventually use it in my retouch port, you will be given the credit as the photog of course. Yes/No?

Hi Jaimie: I guess, what you are calling painty feel, could be done by shadows and highlights (or carving) using Dodge and Burn, part of the regular process of a retoucher...

Try the Portraiture plug in.

Here's a 100% view of a rather high dose.

Search on topics "degrunge" and "inverted high pass" for similar effect.

Of course the example images you posted have a lot more going on than just smoothed skin. The juxtaposition of smooth skin vs textured surroundings, and strong modeling to the light, being just a couple of cases in point.

Re: whats going on here? how?

i tried the inverted high pass on another image and that did bring me alot closer. I dont think though that the example you're showing is what I'm after.

here's my result with inverted high pass.. does look a bit like my topic start image, but not exactly...:
