Thanks, some info about lights and exposure. This one is shot with a softbox in front from above and a small dish from below in front. One stripe softbos at the back left side and a spotlight on the background.
f9, 125e of a second, ISO 100. It's a selfportait and I will use my body for a friend who wants to have a royal portrait of himself. I will make a picture of his head with the same lightsetup and exposure values and use PS to bring his head on the body. The idea of using the body is stolen from the works of a ducth painter called Van Mierevelt who painted Wilhelm van Oranje, the first Ducth King. He used to have a lot of bodies already finished on canvas and the only thing he had to do was paint the face of the one who wanted a painting. You could say he had a kind of portrait factory.

The post processing concerns a lot of desaturation of colours and using curves to highlight or darken parts of the image. Of course some sharpening and some bluring on the edges to achieve a kind of paint effect.

I hope this helps to get a closer look to the final mage.
