Brilliant photoshop image - practice with photoshop and used things like the magnet lasso tool, cloning, and blurring to make it work. if you're really interested id start by search youtube for specific things you want to do. thats where i learned everything i know. they give you pretty clear step by step instructions most everyone can follow
I love this piece because of the body structure and the profile its in. I also like the idea that the face looks incomplete, like it's not really finished yet. I look and this and think, this guy is not really there; he is incomplete.
