Re: white skin color

The skin is probably retouched normally first and then it is being blown out by some kind of overlay blend mode, that is my guess. There are a lot of ways to get there.

Re: white skin color

Those works have some hours of editing in them... They look pretty much like Dodge and Burn, of course including the whole process of color adj. etc... An excellent work on highlights and shadows, and the photo lighting is pretty good too, not white skin...

Taking a 2nd look at the images, there's a possibility the artist used maybe Topaz plug-ins to finalize the images.
