How can i achieve this look?

Hello. Im really interested in achieving the look, lighting and texture that i see in a lot of artwork of soemone, diftype, and in general a lot on the web on various professional artworks.

Can you give me some hints?

Some examples:

They are photographs but they make them resemble almost illustration. Im not talking about the added abstracts effects, more of the texture, color of the skin and general lighting. Is it possible to achieve something like this only with post processing in photoshop?

Best i achieved so far:

As for lighting it can mainly be done by dodging and burning quite a bit. I lack the skill to do it well but can easily set up the light to get this. This will be much faster if you lit your scene correctly (by correctly i mean in a way you want to light to achive this effect). I can give you light diagrams if you want.
