I'm certainly familiar with "Dragan" style and have influences from it. I don't follow any of those steps. I used "high pass" quite a bit in the past, but now I've found some other techniques that appeal to me. That's the wonderful thing about this art form. So many different ways to get to a certain outcome.

Here is the original:

I'd agree...I think over the past 4 years I've gone thru Dragan, Hollywood, Dewis, etc. you've found a really nice combination!

THIS is amazing! I've looked this over, up and down, to try to figure out how to replicate in my work. you have this wonderful texture/detail in your work that just draws me in. I'm a fan of your processing.

I'd love to know the workflow on how to get this look - not the blur but the detail with soft highlights. I see it in a lot on 1x.com portraits but have never been able to pull it off. Gives the feeling of a Caravaggio painting - more clarity than you might expect from the medium.

Great stuff.
