    Editing an Existing Mask with the Pen Tool in CS6

    trickponyeez

      Here's my question re: editing an exisiting mask in CS6.

       

      So, say I create the basic selection with the quick selection wand - for this example, maybe a selection of a horse.


      But, if I don't get the area between the horses legs and want to select that area with the pen tool then delete it from the exisitng mask (i.e. clean up the mask with the pen tool) how do I do it? 

       

      I've seen lots of tutorials that talk about adding selections together, but that doesn't work in this case because my secondary selection is within the original selection.

       

      I know this can be done with the brush tool (cleaning up masks) but I'd like to do it with the pen tool because the results are better.

       

      Thanks for any help.
