Some portrait work for a change

Recently I saw quite a few ads on Instagram and Facebook offering Photoshop presets capable of turning any portrait into a piece of art. So, I decided to give it a try and see how hard it will be to achieve the same look and feel as shown on those ads without magic presets. I have looked through my files and found few shots I have done for my friends in past years. So I got the raw files and went ahead with editing. I have spent about 15 min on each edit. Let me know what you think.
