Dude that's awesome. Verrry cool. I've only dipped in photomanipulation but jeez this is on point. One thing is the textures seem to be flattening the overall form of his head. I think. It's too much awesome sauce for me to handle.

I wholeheartedly agree. I like the texture you've used but it just looks like a simple overlay. You get a great wrapping effect on his chest but the head looks flat in comparison. I think it's mainly what you've done with the cheeks that's killing it.
I agree. Something about the cheek area bugged me. I've contoured and wrapped as well as highlighted the texture on the cheeks to better conform to the rounded face the boy had to begin with , also expanded the texture in the middle of the forehead. I think it's a vast improvement but still needs work.
Thanks for the input guys.
