I'm trying to figure out the effect of the player in this picture, of course the guy who did it won't tell me the effect, and I can't seem to find anything similar around on any of the tutorial sites, hoping someone here can help me.
Thanks in advance.
This Forum is dedicated to feature requests, for questions on techniques You should be better served in the Macintosh- and Windows-Fora.
Anyway, apart from the color-correction which might be done with a simple Curves-Adjustments Layer, I would recommend trying the Surface Blur- and Median-Filters and experimenting with Artistic Filters like Dry Brush - of course as Smart Filters … and some painterly Brush-work might help, too.
Because I would guess that it’s a mixture of various techniques.
