Seaman Richard Carroll - Photoshop Reconstruction

Back on October 5, 2008 I tried to reconstruct a very poor photo of a WWII sailor who died on the USS Grunion (a submarine sunk by the Japanese).  I worked on it for a couple of weeks but I never could really capture the essence of the seaman.  (See that early effort here. Yuk!)

Okay, two years have passed and I have learned a few Photoshop tricks since then.  So I decided to try once again to do Seaman Richard Carroll justice.  I think I did so in this second effort, and it only took me one day to complete.  [Update:  I spent a second, third and fourth day colorizing it and making small edits.] Here it is:

Hey, no foolin', that's pretty good reconstruction work. I'll have to give some of that a try some day.

What's the first step? A photoshop filter to reduce the graininess? I use teh Gimp, so I've no access to any specific 'photoshop' filters. But there's probably a crossover look-alike that'll get it done.

You should post a photoshop tutorial, using that image with a step-by-step progression to the final result.

I'm blogrolling you by the way...thanks!

Thanks Serr8d, I blogrolled you last week. Yes, the first thing I did was to blur the pixelated face, then I just began to draw and paint over it using layers.
