okay, i took this insanely detailed photoshop tutorial and it ended up not being detailed enough. i encourage you to view http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v244/alipia/witon.jpg and see my after/before pics. notice the eyes (i made opened them up and colored them closer to his real eye color and i adjusted his ears, lips, hairline... etc. i'm totally out of control. i was trying to work on this guy's face last week and, robin, your posting was very timely. dammit, i think i'm going to have to take a photoshop class or buy a bloody book.

Yeah man! It's really interesting to see the before/after like this -- b/c really the changes are NOT very extreme, but they make a subtle and important distance.

Interesting that you colored the eyes to more closely match their real color -- looking at the picture I assumed they had been 'amped up,' maybe even a little too much. But I guess it just goes to show you -- photographs are by no means a reliable record, and sometimes some correction is required not to prettify them but simply to make them more closely resemble reality. A-ha!
