Dragan details and trials

From time to time I try to achieve a Dragon type effect. When I get a face I know if it's either a good candidate or not. I thought this photo was. He's Red, a bike riding, fun loving Viet vet. Did I get anywhere near it on my two attempts? 1st is original, 2nd is a Dragon action and 3rd is a video tut from MetaCafe. They ought to be brighter, no? Anyway, thought I'd stick my neck out here.

Re: Dragan details and trials

Just my opinion Veronica, but I think he is still a bit to red...

In the third (darker one) I would probably go around the halos on his forehead and glasses with the clone tool set in the darken mode to get rid of them.. me thinks without the halos the darker one looks best... how does it look a bit lighter?

Now , you see? This is a great piece of advice OldB. Never knew about "the clone tool set in the darken mode to get rid of them (halos)". Thank you so much for the suggestion.
