Step 09

After the highlighting stage, I apply fog to the front and behind the figure, as this will fix the attention on the face only and will help the viewer to avoid wasting time looking at the lower parts of the painting. (Fig.09)

Step 10

Lastly, I use the Dodge tool to brighten up the highlights' brightness values.  I play with the brightness and contrast, and the colour correction values as well.  I lightened up the background a little more with my fire brush, and since the creature's neck seemed too bulky I also finished the illustration by making it more curled.
