    I produced the attached image using WinImages. The result approximates the overall tonality of this stylization, I think. Use the following steps, which you should be able to duplicate in Photoshop:
    • Convert image to monochrome
    • Up the gamma a bit, original was somewhat dark
    • Duplicate the layer so there is a copy of the image
    • Blur the top layer at about a 5 pixel radius
    • Remap the brightness of the top layer according to the graph shown
    • Set the top layer to "Dodge" blend mode


    From here, you might pull the backdrop and put in a blend to replace the background, if that's important to the effect - I'm pretty sure the example image had that done.

    In the attached example, the blurred, remapped upper layer is at the left, the original, lower layer is at the right, and the master image (the result of the layer combination) is in the center. The graph at the bottom is what was used to remap the brightness of the upper layer.

    Depending on where the darkness of the hair falls for any particular image, you'd want to move the bottom of the "V" along the bottom of the remap graph one way or the other. I hand drew that remap curve, which accounts for the ratty look to the line.

    Welcome to RetouchPro. I don't personally have a lot of good advice, but there are many on this site who will be more than glad to lend a helping hand. What exactly are you trying to do with the image?

    Thank you for your interest.
    I'll use the image to engrave.

    I wouldn't consider this a "retouch". It looks more like stylized, graphic art work.

    You might have better luck if you try some of the numerous sites devoted to graphics and Photoshop.

    It looks pretty cool (although the eyes are a bit spooky).
