In this movie, we're going to use a Burning and Dodging technique in order to add a little bit of contour to the face.…So let's create a New Layer, Shift+Command+N on a Mac, Shift+Ctrl+N on a PC.…Name the layer Contour, Blend mode of Soft Light click OK.…Next, press B on the keyboard to select the Brush tool, press 10, it go to 10% Opacity, real low opacity,…and what we're going to do here is we're going to paint with black along the edge…of the cheeks here, add a little bit of definition.…Now, initially this is going to look way too strong and eventually it will look nice.…
What we'll do is we'll actually be blurring this out quite a bit.…So don't worry if you think this just looks crazy.…Then I'm going to go around the edge of the forehead, darken that up a little bit with smaller brush,…go along the ridge of the nose there, and yes, I know this is too intense, I know that, I know it, youve got to stick with me.…Then, paint with white, nice big brush here, little spot on the chin,…little spot on the nose, little spot in the center of the forehead.…
