The photo as it was shot in the studio.
A new and more dynamic hand and head from two alternate shots.
Retouched expression on the mask’s eye brows and mouth.
The beautiful background plate from Alex Knight in place.
A shorter depth of field to add color and bring focus to the character.
Final grade and VFX in place.
