Hi gang, Thought I'd share one of OPRs finest, a young WWI soldier, before sending him home.

Very nice Candy, just one little thing I noticed.. do his lips look a little pink and feminine compared to the original? I think too his eyes are a tad too black..

Lynna, I'm looking over some last adjustments.  In the original there was a great deal of yuck across the lips.  I spent about 3 hours just working on the right shape.  As for the eyes, perhaps you see them as black because I removed the jaundice (yellow/orange) from the whites. 

Thank you Mary.

I think there are a few things that don't match the original in key elements of the face. I did a quick adjustment of your WIP and cropped to just the face to show what I mean



-The whites of the eyes are blue-ish
- the pupil on the left has cornea underneath it where in the original, the lower lid cuts off the pupil
- the mouth shape is quite a bit different. If you draw some outlines over the original you can see how.
- the jaw line is pointier than the original
- some of the shadows were lost (but you may already have restored those

Thank you all for your suggestions.  As always I run a last lookover to catch the small things not seen at 100%.  He's now gone home.
