I used many layers and filters, including the NIK Collection Classical Soft Focus. Most of the grunt work was done using some Smudge brush and much Mixer Brush set to various opacities and sizes. I thought you might be interested in the paint texture I came up with so I made a SBS to explain it.

Fake hair doesn't work. Would suggest reverting to source pic hair. A real frame would help, too. Texture is fine.

I like where you're going with this. I think while you check the size of his head on those shoulders would be a good time to smudge tool the ends of his hair. Right where the hair meets that robe, if you will. Maybe just a little more "crackle" in the paint would add some 17th century look to it... just my 2 cents worth. Great idea!

Thanks for the excellent suggestions. I changed accordingly.
