Here are before and after images detailing the Dodge and Burn process (Fig.18). Even though I'm a traditionalist at heart, it's so much fun to play with the Dodge and Burn layers. Plus it's an extremely quick technique and saves a lot of time.

Step 12: Final Image

Now, I just add some finishing touches, especially around the face of the creature and the FG elements. Sign and date and we're good to go (Fig.19).
