Found this online and would love to try to recreate this type of work. Anybody have any ideas how this could be done?

Looks like a mix of HDR and super skin smoothing...Surely someone will give better advice than myself.

Looks like a lot of photoshop post work to me (HDR maybe?)

I'm seeing a lot of brush work and a lot of clarity slider, not really HDR. Basically it just looks like they used the model as a guide to paint in their subject. I kind of like the cartoon feel, then again it's hard not to like something like this. A bit overdone if anything.

I think the OP was asking "How it's done"

Yes, I would love to know how this was done... At first glance I was thinking more of the HDR side of things. But it seems that there is a company on model mayhem who are doing these types of retouches. Seems like it would be an AWESOME action.

A friendly reminder of POTN rules -- if you don't own the image, you are not supposed to post it. You can post a link to it, though. A moderator will step in and rattle swords if you don't correct this:)!

Thanks for being cool, T.D.

Heh! I'm glad when we can all just get along...

I could have been more verbosely accurate -- I could have said "a moderator will be along shortly, rattling swords and then will proceed to slice your post to a mere shadow of what it was", but sometimes less is better...:)!

There is nothing "HDR" about the rendering of the model. HDR means capturing an extended Dynamic Range, beyond the normal ability of the camera, and there just is not that range of tones anywhere in the shot except for the window behind her - which is a distraction and tries to pull the eye from the serious stuff (doesn't quite succeed, 'tho). HDR is done by blending two images, but what most people mistakenly call HDR is the extreme remapping that follows the blending and that can be done on any image.

It is true however, that the easiest way to get that remapping is to use one of the HDR applications, like Photomatix or Dynamic HDR, which are built for it.

No one has said it IS HDR. It just resembles it. That could be from remapping IF it were done in the first place as you mentioned. The OP is asking HOW the shot was done. Do you have any idea?

Looks like everyone is going off track with "it's ugly" or something else.

Let's try to stay on track fellas.
