forgot my sbs, but its all fairly simple. Thanks to MJranum, MnMCarta, and NightFateStock for the amazing stock images used to make this.
ANY critiques would be awesome, just try to be constructive.

****alright...thanks to a few opinions and ideas, i've reworked the entire piece...i am MUCH happier with it now than i was before. and bonus deal, i learned displacement maps. :D **** THANKS!! (5 years and 2438 days ago)

Lookin' good! I'd try to give the cracks more of a sense of depth, and warp them to the contours of the ear. GL author.

awww...now now...don't count me down on the lack of sbs just yet. i'll be posting it soon enough, i just didn't have it with me today, and no internet at home makes it quite hard to keep up. :P SO.. SBS will be coming.

and ... thanks on the compliments. i wasn't sure about that texture on the face, kept playing with it to try and get it to blend better. :P

If the texture is on the man on the right is on a separate layer, try completely desaturating it, since i assume the layer is set to soft light, the skin might look a bit more effective. To make the cracks seems stronger, maybe even try duplicating the texture.

author says:

OH..dang. added the SBS.
and... changed it all up a bit.
should probably credit the tut for the displacement mapping, because without it i'd have been totally lost...
