Perhaps later. I'm looking at it on a notebook display right now. I have it open. I matched the saturation to see what he meant by not being able to get the greenish silver look. Greenish is just a matter of the amount of magenta. At that point I lost interest for now, but I can say just doing that, several of the highlights are too dull. A couple could probably be achieved by auto selection and bringing them up a bit. I gave it a quick try with auto selection tools, as my tablet isn't plugged into this machine. It didn't turn out that well. I would probably do more of it with a brush. The shadow around the cheekbone would also have to come down. Eyes would have to come up a bit in whites and highlights. Lips would need to be tuned slightly. I think when he says silvery, he could probably get that by making sure the highlights aren't too saturated after adjustment. Maybe I'll come back to it, but without actually masking and painting, my version wouldn't communicate much. That would also be why I mostly type. Typing doesn't take anywhere near as much time when I'm doing something else.
Edit: I would probably have to sharpen it slightly as well (I do mean slightly). The reason for that is that a couple small to medium sized details like freckles suggest that treatment on the final.
