Extreme Photo Restoration

This decaying photo (left side) of Mr. Javier is so old that I couldn't even remove the photograph from the frame without damaging it. Mildews, fungus and stains reign in every square millimeter! I took me three long days to retouch and restore. It's actually more like photo illustration as almost 50% of the details are decayed away (when viewed up close), so I had to use my "creative license" to ad lib lost facial features (right side). A good mouse, Wacom pen, and appropriate MP3 music helps a lot.
