Wish I could remember what I did... I am pretty positive it is all legal in Advanced ed.. so this being Expert I am pretty confident its cool. I can say, I used noise ninja, auto levels, virtal photographer to get b/w character layer, with a layer style on it, did some dodge and burn on just the eyes. combined layers and duped them for screen to brighten the image. May be some manual levels in there somewhere as well.

Well I don´t want to say the makeup is not well done but it is not really convincing either, if her shoulder is supposed to be an open wound it doesn´t really look like it. Also, not wanting to sound like a perv, I would have asked her to wear something that left her shoulders bare, the white top looks a bit out of place, the bare shoulders would have fitted more or something black, like a leather jacket or something.

Very gruesome. Great lighting. I like the dark background.

Not sure that I like the finished product, purely because of the theme. But in the theme of Advanced editing, a great piece of work. Well done. 8

Nice shot - Like the tones - Very eye catching - just lacking that pin sharp eye that should make this pop - If you notice her hair line on the left is sharp but the right eye is not.

With the severity of it and the great detail, I'd have had the left strap falling down off of her shoulder. Just a minor thing, but having them all neat up on her shoulders seems off to me. No big deal cause this is fantastic. I like the lighting, the focus and the effect for sure. 8
