I change the contrast of this "tool" by adjusting the curve so I can see other areas of the skin, such as the dark shadows though out my the skin work.
I do love the results. I get the B&W contrasty image with the "tool" layer ON is flaw less, so when you turn the "tool" layer off, the skin is just perfect with all of its textures.
One questions is. it can take me about 3 hours to do the face alone, especially the model that I posted in this thread. Is this normal or am I am too slow or doing something wrong???
