No external sources used. I mainly used stamp tool. Seperate layers for eyes, ear, and mouth and blouse. Colored these as seperate layers then adjusted opacity. I was trying to bring the statue to life. Airbrush was helpfull on facial areas. The subjects hair was the most difficult to work with, I ended up with a sort of punky blond hair effect. Fun experiment.

For the background:

Duplicate original picture
Choose the duplicated layer.
Change it to Exclusion blending mode.
Use levels to adjust.
You will see that the light and dark backgrounds are reversed and they are more blue than before.
Merge the layers or take a snapshot then continue modifying the picture (5 years and 1433 days ago)

Not bad, but look at the lighting on the source pic & adjust your shadows accordingly. You might consider reducing the amount of empty space around the figure, too.

This was my first contest entry. Glad I checked my messages as it mysteriously disappeared. As I said in my original comment, I used no external sources. The background is just the background of the original picture we were given to work with. I may have touched up some of the scratches on the original background using the clone stamp tools.

The frame around the subject was done making a simple square and applying the gradient tool. Then cutting out a circle with the eliptical selection tool.

Ok, On second thought I see the differences in the background. I am trying to recreate how that was done and the only thing I can figure out is:

Duplicate original picture
Choose the duplicated layer.
Change it to Exclusion blending mode.
Use levels to adjust.
You will see that the light and dark backgrounds are reversed and they are more blue than before.
Merge the layers or take a snapshot then continue modifying the picture.
