Join Lee Varis for an in-depth discussion in this video Lesson 17: Rebuilding skin pt. 5, part of Beyond Skin: Going Deeper with Photoshop CS3.
Now we've really gone quite far with this image and done a lot of work.…What this represents is a whole strategy for dealing with this kind of thing.…I start big and apply a broad move. We blurred the skin, really hammered it.…Then I wanted to build up skin texture.…Put a really aggressive skin texture and then backed off.…So often times when we are approaching the stuff, we go a little bit further…than we think is right, and don't try and attempt to end up at the finished…result in the first step.…
So we start with a fairly aggressive move, the blurring of the skin, and…then begin to refine it, refine it, refine it and polish it down into its final state.…We're getting to the point now where I'm going to put the very fine-tuning…little things on, just to nudge it back into just the right condition.…So to do that, I'm going to use my Overlay Dodge and Burn at the top.…
Reviewing here, I'm going to create a new layer, but hold down the Option or Alt…key, so that I get the New Layer dialog here.…
