Could you give us a tutorial along with the PSD jaroslav requested?

It'll be much appreciated.

I always try to sample my black from the pupil, hair, or nostril to avoid skin discoloration during D+B. When that didn't work, I just sample the color from the surrounding skin area and paint over. I used a regular soft brush at normal mode with opacity at 3% and flow at 40% with an Intuos 3 and went to town with it...no trick. You can set it at whatever % you prefer as long as you're comfortable in controlling it. I D+B as much as 60% with the Graphire tablet.
looks good, but i still wish you posted the psd file...

Re: Dodge and Burn Technique

Hey Ruud, thanks for posting your tutorial guide layered PS file. I think this will help take the mystic out of applying D&B. Like everyone has said, there are no short cuts to this type of retouching

Almost forgot, how long did you spend on this image?

My psd (actually, tiff) files are really simple. Most of them contain only 5 layers. The background layer is a smart object that I process from camera raw into the tiff. The 2nd layer is a normal background copy layer where I do minor clean up, such as dust, tiny hair on skin, large blemishes, etc... I also tend to merge all the facial reconstruction adjustments, eyes enhancement, or whatever else before I D+B onto that layer as well. The 3rd layer is the Soft Light 50% grey layer where I do all the major skin work and shading with D+B. The 4th layer is just a sharpen layer. And the 5th layer is a curve adj. layer for colors, highlights, and contrasts.

What I posted here are the 2nd and 3rd layer.

Re: Dodge and Burn Technique

Thank you very much ruud92!

The sample is of great help. When I asked for a tutorial, I just wanted to know the steps for this technique. I suppose this technique uses curves for both, dodging and burning, but I see in you sample that you use black filled layers in soft light mode for burning.

Thanks for sharing the techniques!
