iHumanoidHi gang, 'sup?! D'ya know what... After googling for some time, I found this stunning images suitable for this tutorial. Hell yeah.. I found Star Cyborgs on soft archive.

Simply click here to get the whole images.

In this lovely opportunity, we're gonna meke it easy with only using the old style, lol... I mean Brush Tool (B) with the composition between Highlight and Shadow that we can get from Dodge Tool (O) and Burn Tool (O)

Step 1 - Removing Background: (this is optional)

But before that... Remember to back up your Image by copying it...
(ofcourse this is optional, isn't it?!?!??! :D). Do this pressing Ctrl + J to get the
copy of your original photo. Next, Extract the model out of BG (it's optional too...
i didn't do that, red lol!!! 'coz i believe this BG is awesome its self :p)
.
You guys could do that extracting model out of the background using
Pen tool (P)
or other one just like Polygonal Lasso Tool (L)...
it's up to you... Done with your job? Ok, enough monkey business,
lets get to the meat of our tutorial.

Step 2 - Drafting the Grooves:

Create a new layer above the model and name it as Draft Lines by hitting the Create a New Layer icon on the Palette Layer.

Using the Brush tool, with size around 15 - 20pts, foreground color set to
#000000
and opacity to 50%, draw roughly how you want the grooves to
look generally. Hey... you have to do this with fun, dudes!!!

The joints are all drawn as circles while the rest are straight lines.


Step 3 - Painting Grooves:

Create a new layer above the Draft Lines and name it as Grooves.

We will concentrate on all the circular joint areas first. Using the Elliptical
Marquee Tool (M)
,
draw a circular selection and fill it with #000000 like
the one shown in the diagram.

Step 4 - Painting Grooves:

Create another circular selection, slightly smaller than the one you done earlier.

Move the selection a little towards top right of the black circle. Press Delete once you get something like the example.

Repeat Step 3 and 4 for rest of the joint areas.

Step 5 - Painting Grooves:

Using the Brush Tool (B), set the size to 3pt and color to #000000, paint in the remaining grooves.

Add in more where you think is appropriate.

Step 6 - Apply Surface Blur:

Select the Model layer and go to Filter > Blur > Surface Blur.

Set the Radius to 5 and Threshold to 8.

Step 7 - Adding Highlights:

While still on the Model layer, select the Dodge Tool (O), set the size to 5pt and use it to highlight the bottom and left edges of each pieces.

This step is to enhance the depth of the grooves.

Step 8 - Adding Shadows:

Similar to Step 7, but this time use the Burn Tool (O), set the size to 5 pt to darken the top and right edges of every pieces.
