    This tutorial is awesome and I have learned beyond expectation. I also like to see when Aaron doesn’t like an approach and goes back and shows another way of doing things such as adding noise for skin texture instead of using the clone stamp tool. For a beginner like me it was a bit fast, but fortunately I have worked true Photoshop 101 – 301 so I was able to follow. Now that the work is done it is also a good reference file if I can’t remember how certain things are done.
    Thank you Aaron and PHLEARN team for this awesome tutorial. I have posted it on my Instagram and used the tag #phlearn
