07. Light sculpting

In this Photoshop class Karl explains how he softens out the fine lines under the eyes in this image before taking an in-depth look at how to do light sculpting.

He uses a simple Overlay layer, which acts much like the burn and doge tools, to achieve perfect looking skin. This technique is simple yet effective and is a brilliant way for achieving flawless skin without losing any of the texture.
