Photoshop Skin & Texture Retouching

I got heavily inspired and motivated tonight to practice a full face texture/color edit (one I’ve always dreaded because of the amount of time it consumes), so I grabbed a simple front face pose with Mekenzie and got to work. Here’s the result:


Tools/techniques used:
– blemish removal with healing brush/spot/patch tool
– frequency separation & facial sculpting
– more healing brush
– dodge/burning
– face tuning
– liquify
– transform/distort

Hope to do much more because it was really fun. I’ve still got lots to learn in terms of paying attention to particular details, like the lips and jawlines in this case, but boy I wish it didn’t take up so much time :\

’til next time! More projects to come.
