This is a great picture. I'd love to use it for a Photoshop contest I'm participating in. Of course, I'll post the result on dA. In addition I would have to post it on pxleyes.com. Would that be okay with you? I will give you the proper credits there as well. Thanks in advance for your reply.

I smoothed the skin using surface blur. Also I removed the facial features (only to put them back later) using cloning and healing.

step 9 of 15

Created the front of the packaging design from scratch in AI. (I could have done this in PS, but in AI it's much quicker and resolution independent, I hope that's okay.)

Enlarged the canvas to be able to fit the packaging around Amandine.

Added a red curtain (Moulin Rouge style) as a backdrop inside the box. Also, I fine tuned the overall color of the 'doll'.

step 12 of 15

Added my packaging design and applied a color halftone effect to it to simulate offset printed artwork. In addition I added a slight perspective distortion to the box. Finally I added a subtle yet significant reflection to simulate the plastic window in the box.
