Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

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.

3. Increased detail painting

Step 1

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.

Step 2

Obvious dribble stuff lets just take care of it at this point all over so we have a cleaner painting layer.

And lets take the opportunity to extend the teeth as shown here, just sample color from one of them.

Step 6

At this point lets create a shadow for the left eye since it is well covered by flesh, so create a new levels adjustment layer and adjust it as shown.

Fill the mask for that layer with black so its all gone and just use a soft brush to apply it at the corner of the eye as shown.

  1. I cannot download the brush, anyway anyone could tell me how to set it, so it fades on both sides...
    Also the other brush.
    Preferebly with sreemshots....
    Thank you.

  2. Nice tutorial but I feel that after step 17 it looks overdone. Also the zombied area of face could be more dark and reddish that would look more natural. By the way extremely well written tutorial.

  3. I'm really liking the tutorials here! But did you really have to use a stock photo of frogs humping each other?

  4. This is amazing! Premium quality tutorial here but the videos should be sped up. You're not kidding when you say it's 10 hours!
