Interesting. I think moving the moon to the left would balance the compositon more and add more drama as more branches would block it. I would expect the torches to cast an oranger light.

yes MossyB may have been wrong in what he/she said when not knowing for sure whether or not that the style of Dragan can be green or not, BUT to basically say that he/she isn't a "prof" (whatever that really is--I'm thinking you meant professer?) because you checked his/her profile is just wrong in my opinion! It is like saying a coach doesn't know how to coach just because he can't play the game! MossyB may have a great eye for things whether you think his/her profile is up to your standards or not. Jeesh! Jawshoewhaw once basically said that he wouldn't take my advice into consideration about photo's because my profile "wasn't that spectacular" as far as photography went. I may not be able to execute photography as well as others, but I'm pretty sure I know what looks good or not. So, my point is...just don't go saying stuff about people's profile because their execution may not fit perfectly into their "eye".

oh and by the way MossyB, if you go to Dragan's site and click on Portfolio and then Advertising and then the 3rd picture in the 3rd row, you'll see a green tint to this.

Author, whether MossyB is correct or not in her statement about the green, I think it is rude to go look at someone's profile and think that they have no right to say anything... "and i checked ur portfolio and found what a prof u r !!!" Do you think that the millions of people who buy art everyday have no right to say what they think is good or not just because they can't do art themselves?????

hey, on this way anybody will learn nothing, ok author its ok to have a green cast on face but the bear is gray or yellow or brown (little red) , to make it very good from good, you may apply a mask for the hair and clothes, good luck!

@mossy looking to the first class site you suggest to the contenders if you look again you will find many colors in it (Yellow-Green even blue) so check it again and after all the work is not bad i think author did well ...............you might suggest to correct something in the work but its also depend on the creator imagination as long as he convinced in what he did no one can change it .......... as i think this site is to improve people skills by see others work and learn from them so i think its better to gave advice instead of dropping empty comments

again nice work author and good luck

Perlie, a green skin tone is more than artistic license, it's a technical flaw in a contest trying to emulate the effect.

And just because you saw green tutorials does not make them accurate Dragan effects. That's why I did not link to second-rate tutorials, I linked to the actual artist's website, so that members could see the effect to attempt, which is more a High Def, skin texture focused effect...That's why the contest states, "...give it your best "Dragan effect," not "sharpen and color tint it."

pearlie says:

I beg your pardon, MossyB, but a couple of the tutorials that I looked at certainly DO have options for changing the coloring, via variations. Anyway, ever hear of 'artistic license'??

MossyB says:

Author, I suggested this contest. I'm VERY aware of the Dragan effect, and sorry, a green tint to the skin is not quite what a good "Dragan" strives to achieve...lol! Especially the green in his beard...Might work for St. Patrick's day, though!

Check Dragan's website (the link is in the contest description), and YOU can then see what the Dragan effect looks like.

You might try a Curves adjustment of the Green channel to try to tone that down a bit. Or pin a shamrock onto his hat.

Very nice job on this, and your series of images in the sbs - but it would be nice if you added some comments as to what you did to achieve the effect.

Edit: Thank you for the explanation, author - really nice dramatic effect you achieved!

Author is correct, you can put a child's face on an adult body, this isn't like the other contest

(good thinking author) (You could lower the saturation so the girl doesn't look so Lupusy.. the blotching red is a bit odd, but it's a great Idea) Good luck author

Cool concept. I would horizontally flip the background so the clouds are on the left to create a more diagonal composition instead of having everything on the right-hand side.

Her skin tones are very blotchy and strange - Her forehead looks almost green, while her jawline looks bruised...Makeup should even out the skin tones, not emphasize them.
You've also whitened her eyes and teeth a bit too much. Sometimes, less is more.

MossyB says:

The top of the car and where the hood meets the door are too blurred, and the blackened windows with the strange highlights at the top look like paper cutouts, because they don't correspond with the rest of the car, nor the background.

The paint job is awesome, but the detailing needs work.

The upper eyelids and lips are still extremely wrinkled, and around the upper edges of the face there is a very noticeable blurred/unblurred edge where the blending needs some work.

kind of weird.. this really doesn't belong in a exercise of photo manipulation.. but a statement in the power of universal humanity... we will never meet my dear... but I will hold you in my heart.. so when you see the moon.. and I, in my part of the world, looking at the same moon.. are one, fate is the only thing that separates us.. wonderful source discovery...
