AZRainman like portrait effect

I am very much impressed by AZrainman's work. In most of his images, he turns normal skin tone people to like airbrushed, HDR, watercolour or whatever like effect you may call it. For example take a look at images below which are from rainman's blog






Plz help me out, I converted my image to watercolour like effect and tried some other tecniques also but was not able to reach rainman like effect. Plz help me out, I am new to photoshop and started photoshopping just about 1 & half months ago.

I use a wide variety of techniques along with smudge brushing, so it's hard to say which one I did what on.

This should help you in narrowing down illustrative fx by way filters: Artistic/Illustrative Plugin Comparison

This technique also gives an illustrative look:

I also posted a lot of other tips in this section of the forum.

That looks fine, reminds me of the Ahnuld image

I usually bump up highlighting and shading to give it more depth, but that's just a matter of personal taste. I'd probablly erase or clone out the mic, the blurred hand and the bystander.


More info here in regards to contrast fx:
Tone Mapping/HDR Plugin Comparison
High Clarity Tutorial

Dodge and burn tool also comes in handy.

Thanks AZ for your valuable comments. I am still learning and not good at cloning. From today only i will work more on adjusting shadows and highlights.
Plz, if you can, give me some good cloning tips.
Thanks again. You're extremely good.

Using the clone stamp tool is basically a matter of practice and there's a lot new features I have yet to try.

Here's a some good basic videos:
