    I've always loved the hyper-real/surreal/over-dramatic editing done to photos, which seems to be famous amongst Andrejz Dragan's work!

    Recently I was scouring the internet for tutorials, photoshop actions, etc to mimic it, but I think that was the wrong way of going about things, although it did provide some HINTS as to how to achieve it...

    In my opinion achieving this effect requires two things that need to work hand in hand.
    1) The composition/subject are extremely important, you need to capture a certain emotion, that will live up to being exaggerated.
    2) The eyes...are vital to this look! Be sure to capture the eyes well...

    Critique is encouraged :)
    Thanks,
    Vlad

    It doesn't really look that Dragan-ish to me. They eyes are also way to wacked out.

    I'd recommend posting up the picture here. Most people on the forum don't like to click on links especially with first time posters. Thanks!
