OK we will start to modify the eye on the right to make it a bit more sad; so duplicate the base image and then make a selection of the eye as shown here, then transform the selected part as shown.
Move the selection in this position and then use the healing tool to remove the lower gap left there.
Then for the rest of what we have missing we will continue a bit with the healing tool, yet only for the white part and make sure yo don’t go over the darker section of the lashes or the algorithm will plaster a black smudge there.
For the rest just grab the clone tool and complete the eye as shown here. I left a bit of extra white at the bottom to suggest a bit of tears.
Perfect, now lets select the right eye and copy paste it on a new layer; then move it over the other eye.
Distort it a bit as shown here and then just erase around it so we keep only the eye.
Now go back to the clone tool and select this brush tip for it, at about only 6px.
Now just clone a bit to complete the eye as shown here.
Make a duplicate of this layer, rotate it and just erase the top of so we have a complete round retina in the eye. And finally just clone a bit more to complete the White section.
Now merge both layers together and grab the smudge tool with the tip shown here. Then just smudge out to make the infected eye.
Now reduce the brush size at about 4px and smudge a bit more detail in there.
We can now re enable the painted layer and then make a color balance layer for the eye adjusted as shown.
Then create a levels layer and set it up as shown here.
Lets erase the section shown here.
Sample some color and paint in some pieces of flesh going from the eye lid down.
And then apply some lighter highlight color.
At this point I decided to rework the skin that covers the top of the eye, so just erase a bit as shown here.
And then just sample color close by to rework that piece of flesh as indicated.
Now select the brush tool and adjust the brush settings as shown here.
Lets start touching up what we have around the eye, refining a bit and start getting rid of the dribbles we did on the sketch section, and that is it at this stage lets move on to the next section.
3. Increased detail painting
Lets continue adding detail to the face by refining the edges redefining the shapes and adding color tones needed to give volume to the flesh.
