After a few requests I'll try to explain how I've achived the wet elf effect in this entry
http://photoshopcontest.com/images/large/vsmkvw8x20o13ovmqgqi5d2pm0gyybtf1h3e.jpg

5 quick steps:

1. desaturate end invert the elf layer



2. go to filter -> artistic -> plastic wrap -> mess with it till you have the effect you like



3. go to image -> adjustments -> gradient map -> try to set the gradient maps colors to match the scene color



4. new layer and create a clipping mask (hold down Alt and click the line between the new and the elf layer). In this new layer with a white brush that can simulate a little bubbles paint all over the elf



5. Add some more water splashes as you like




have fun Very Happy
