Dramatic Skin Tones Tutorial


In this video tutorial I will show you a simple and effective technique of creating a hard dramatic skin effect. This is an intermediate difficulty level tutorial.
I used Photoshop CS6 for this tutorial but it can be made in CS3 and above because all tools are available on these Photoshop versions. Below you can see a before and after so you can get an idea of what the tutorial is about.
This technique works best on high key photos, in other words on bright photos but you can try it on other kinds of images too.
