Resumo do Concurso

Dear Freelancers,

This is photo retouching contest.
The headshot/picture is given ([url removed, login to view]) to work on and edit it to a different character look using photo editing program.

The description of the character:
"20s; ASIAN – He is an intimidating, creepy man with bleached hair, a pierced eyebrow, and a quasi-punk rock aesthetic that puts him out of step with other criminals. A criminal errand boy for a mob in charge of murders and assorted kinds of courier work, he is silent but deadly. He is the kind of man who gets sent on odd evil missions in the middle of the night..."

The final product will be used by an actor for a casting submission, and keep in mind that it'll likely to be used as a guide for an actual look alteration (haircut, hair color change/bleaching, piercing and etc...), therefore an unrealistic extreme change is NOT recommended (i.e. 100 piercings, facial tattoo on entire face).

Something that gives a character with a style, stands out from a crowd, and a realistic sense giving you a creep if "he" lives in the neighborhood is what I am looking for.
Please look for the keywords in the description above (creepy, bleached hair, pierced eyebrow, etc...) for inspiration.
Regular photo retouching (such as color correction) is recommended as well.

Although the contest runs for 9 days, the winner can be announced before the contest expires since this is urgent (possibly as short as 3 days).
Early entry is recommended.

Thank you for your interest to this contest.

Wish you all the best of luck and most of all have fun with it,

-Tatsu

Notes:
The eyes are ABSOLUTELY important as they tell the story (but do not change eye color).

------------

ADDITIONAL NOTES (Mar 5 '14):

The following images are added as references:
-Character references
-Punk Rock references
-Bleached Hair references


Below are things to remember when editing.

Followings are Suggested:
-Hair color

Again thank you all for your entries. =]

    It has nothing from your requests the hair color is the same, modified eyes, modified eyebrows and nose, the airbrush effect on the nose you can see it's photoshopped.. from the Moon? this was a honest contest or just a fake one ?

      ya man, I agree with that too. I think it's a design, he himself submitted from a different account and awarded the prize money to himself. I think we should report this scum bag

      Blood stains stays only for a limited time, the winner's photo have a blood stain in scar and also in piercing. Does the character gonna be acting with the blood stains all the time? It clearly looks like photoshopped image and you quoted that "Looks really being photoshopped". Please stay on your need this helps you to choose the perfect one.

    They are all different in style and have own creativity.
    Also sorry that I couldn't give personal feedback to every one you since I was really tied up with other stuff.

    The winner was chosen mainly because of how the color is used, pale skin, sharp eyes, vivid blood stain on the lip, contrast with dark background.

    Hello!
    Does it need to look really realistic or can a bit cartoony style do the job?

      Athalansy,
      I can be a little bit of both. Ideally "he" exists in live-action TV drama (and possibly in real life as well).
      Looking like a cosplayer in -con's is a "no-no".
      Hope this helps.
