Create a Painting of “Sipahi” in Photoshop
Now at this step I would like to add some colors at the background . First I opened a new layer at the top of the background layer and after that I used a round soft brush with opacity set to 50% I add some colors at the bottom and some highlight at the top of the background. Now you can't see my warrior character because I make my character layer invisible by clicking the eye on the menu.
After I finished with the background details I began a very detailed painting process on my character and for this step I use same brush but I'll change some settings when I was using the brush. And again when I do want to add some more light on the painting I am going to chose color dodge from here.
Now that the general details are almost fixed. Ah and I forget to say that I used the Smudge tool to refine the edges between the highlights and shadows.
Here is the final stage but now I would like to add some more details my character. I increased the darkness around the background and added highlights to the cheeks.
Ah, I finally painted the a moustache with a little sized brush. I've also been making some adjustments to the face. A soft highlight just besides the lower lip and nose. Some more highlights on the nose and cheeks.
Here I have added some details for his helmet too and as you noticed I add some strokes with the smudge tool . The feather can be created with the same technique as the one used for the face. You'll be using the smudge tool for smoothing.
Using the smudge tool, continue to paint the rest of the feather and also add some light colors. As you can see in below image. I am using the Smudge tool at 30% strength for the feathers. Then I finish it with the Dodge and Burn tool to create shadows and highlights.

Step 6: Final Adjustment

Also I am going to add some Adjustment/Auto Levels though the last merged layer.
After you select Adjustment/Auto Levels then go to Edit click on Fade Auto Levels.
And make the opacity 82 or 81.

Final Results

After all these steps are completed here's the final image, I hope you found this "Portrait of Sipahi Warrior" interesting. Thank you for reading.
