Alan, thanks for the compliment.

I didn't do anything special.

Levels
New Layer - Multiply
Mask the face Feather the selection by a radius of 50
Inverse the selection and adjust the Levels to darken the selection
Merge Visible on New Layer
Gaussian Blur a radius of 1
Add a Mask to reveal the eyes, nose, mouth
Touch up on blotchy colours and blemishes
Made the teeth whiter

By the way, Alan, I was inspired by your fabulous sketch

Hi Legacy Art. I never thought you were, but I am one of those linear minded people who likes resolution and realized when you posted again that you hadn't seen my response. It was surprising to me how the lip color seemed to change as soon as I erased through and flattened the layers. Always something new to learn in PS.

I'm very sorry to hear about your grandfather. Our prayers are with your family.

I tried some PopArTisT then backed off a whole bunch.

Cheers

Hi All,
Just a simple sketch to add to all your great efforts.

PSP

two sketch layers over
base layer reduced to about 30%
eyes lightened and highlights added.

Regards to all,
Mitch.
