    Hands also itchy liao. I did this mainly to find out something.

    The other attempts seem to lose a bit of shadows details on the jacket.

    I think Gooseberry's still

    The colour and tone is just what I'm looking for. The texture is also present. Sathea's one a bit overpowered, though there's texture

    The only problem is cannot get it

    i suspect is due to the color of the face matching the background.
    from gooseberry and the 2 pics of the same gal, same pic, i realise all the face color are pretty matched to the backgorund as well.
    anyway my 2nd super duper newbie try continued with the 1st pic

    This is great also. Essentially what I'm after is the texture. Would you be willing to provide a detailed workflow? I'm not very good with PS and would appreciate any help you can provide.

    Oi! It's not a compliment, it's just an observation! I wouldn't want anyone telling me my lips are full and luscious.

    Ok, homophobic mode off...

    eh workflow? pretty much random leh... i got no basic of PS so just do as i like.
    iirc i folo what gooseberry setting for sharpening at 100% , 0.7, 2. den dodge/burn here and there. reduce saturation by -10 and den played with channel mixture just to get it yellowish (not v well done tho... rushing to watch TV )

    Wow, looks like everyone is having fun... thanks Stoned for posting the original question and link to that picture, got me interested and I must say I had fun reading up about this and trying out to see if I could get the technique.

    After searching the net for this, I found there's actually a number of different techniques that people have tried to get similar results (draganizing, painting with digital light), some quite complicated (for me anyway), and as silver.wolf mentioned there was a method that was similar to what I posted earlier.

    I'll outline the steps I used for that german actor's photo - can't remember the exact numbers used (except for the sharpening), as I just adjusted them to what I thought looked ok
    - sharpen the image (I think this is important to get textures in the face/skin - I used smart shapening 100, 0.4; but you probably can use your favourite sharpening technique)

    - next, create a hue/saturation adjustment layer and reduce the master saturation down to desaturate the image (this is to reduce the redness in the face and other blemishes)

    - next, create a selective colour adjustment layer to bring back the tones and detail in the face after the desaturation above (again this step is quite important, as you want to bring back the detail and texture in the image) when the selective colour options dialogue box appears, you want to modify the whites and the neutrals to bring up the yellow, black, cyan and magenta (I think this step is the key to the technique, and the exact values you use are dependant on the image/skin tones of the person ie. it'll be different for a caucasian as compared to an asian)

    - this is where they say you do some burning to get more detail into the face etc (but I didn't do this as I'm crap at using the brush tool - too much hard work, easier just playing with sliders )

    - I then lightened the eyes a bit via a new overlay layer and painting the eyes with a white brush (think this also is important to create impact in a portrait with bright eyes)

    - next I coloured the eyes a nice green colour via a colour layer and toned the rest of the image (except for the face) the same green colour

    That was pretty much it. If you search the net, there's a few quite sophisticated techniques which give really good results, but I couldn't be bothered trying them out just yet - my ps kung fu isn't good enough.

    Hope that helps.

    yeah. that helps. i realised that the sharpening step is kinda crucial into getting the texture u want.
