Re: Just another skin retouch.

be careful with Dodge and can be just as destructive as blurring....yes you will retain skin pores and detail, but now you have no shape in the face. you need to look at the before and after in a way of seeing what she looked like without retouching, and bring back her features. the d&b is there to smooth transitions and even some blotchy areas out, not to get rid of shadow and highlight details altogether.

-one tip that helps when d& to bounce around the image, don't just d&b the image one giant section at a tome, you tend to overdo it and before you know it you have smoothed out too much and lost definition. jump around a bit so you don't over-work an area.

Re: Just another skin retouch.

Thank you for the tip, KR1156. I appreciate you feedback.
Now, since my shadows are even (not blotchy), can I just use black brush to bring back the shape of her face??? Or do I need to redo the whole thing???
