Photoshop

Step 05

After painting the figure completely, I apply texture to it and erase the parts that I don't like by using the borders of the figure's layers, which I select by clicking Load Selection. (Fig.05)

Step 06

I apply Dodge on the picture, upon which the texturing stage is over, after merging the layers.  Dodge is a tool that should be used wisely, and I advise you to work with it by making light touches only. (Fig.06)

Step 07

Now we can work on the highlights.  First I paint the large parts that should get light with a small soft round airbrush.
You don't have to choose a very light colour, and you can always go back and use the Dodge tool to increase the volume of light. (Fig.07)

Step 08

Now I paint the sharper parts with a thin, hard round brush and a lighter volume.  You don't have to apply highlights on the whole figure; the important thing is to illuminate the parts you want to emphasise. (Fig.08)
