Liquify?

Hi all, I'm brand new here!

I'm decent so far on skin smoothing/blemish removing/etc. but for the life of me I can't figure out how to get the liquify tool to work the way I've seen it use to reshape and sculpt. I'm not sure what kind of tools in the liquify area to use for what (bloat, pinch, etc.) and no matter what I do everything always comes out looking smudgy and flurry.

Do any of you have any tips or tricks to share?

Re: Liquify?

Welcome to the forum. The most commonly used tool is probably the forward warp tool. Picking the right size brush is the tricky part, too small for the area your are trying to affect and it will be noticeable and too large and you may affect other areas. I would say small increments are the way to go; that and judicious use of the freeze tool, so that you can pick areas to be unaffected.

Here's a tutorial on the basics
