  • Learn how to work with blending options, adjustment layers and photo manipulation in order to retouch your subject and achieve a super sleek result!
  • Learn to spend extra care and attention to detail in order to achieve the best possible outcome.
  • Work with digital painting techniques, and learn to master the pen tool.
  • Learn how to construct a cool background lighting effect.

    I really like the way that yours turned out as well!

    It’s a great technique but it is pretty tricky to make the skin look less lifelike and more like plastic.

    Thanks Tom for your kind feedback!

  4. The outcome is amazing. A really great and tricky technique.
