i'm trying to re-paint this advertisement for practice in photoshop. unfortunately, all the methods i've tried don't achieve the effect. i first thought it was achieved by building up layers of transparency with a brush with slightly soft edges, but that didn't look right. i also can't achieve anything like this with the mixer brush.
the look is very organic and digital at the same time...does anyone have any ideas as to what brush settings and application order might be on the face or how i could achieve this effect?
