I am afraid I am underestimating the time and skill it took to clean up the other entry. however, this one is much more interesting and was executed very well. I especially like the ripples close to the eyes. Nice.
other is clean and has a few nice details, but this entry is a great use of the source, soem beautiful PS effects compliment it and make it live...no pun intended... oh ok there was a little :oD fantastic visual
