On the picture below you can see where I painted. I put black background under so you can see it better.
As you can see I painted on "tops" of the face - nose, cheeks, forehead and borders of lips. I also added glow around her hair and small light dots into her eyes. you should do it too.
Step 10 - Changing Lights on Clothes and Trees
Let's focus on adding lights and shadows to clothes and trees. It's similar as previous step, only in this case you won't paint on empty layer but on layer filled with mid grey.
Add new layer on the top of all layers and name it e.g. LIGHT ON CLOTHES AND TREES. Grab the Paint Bucket Tool (G), pick #808080 grey color and fill the layer with it.
To blend it with the rest of the image change its Blending Mode on Overlay. You can find it in the upper part of the palette Layers (see picture below).
Now you will use the Brush Tool (B) to lighten and to darken some areas. If you paint with white you make it lighter, with black you make it darker.
Set the Master Diameter to 1 - 3 pixels and lower the Opacity on about 5%. Paint over the areas where light of the butterfly hits. Then switch to black and darken the areas which remain in shadows.
On the following picture you can see the inspiration where to paint. Blending Mode of it is left on Normal so you can see the exact strokes and not only the result.
As you can see clothes near the butterfly are lighter and also closer part of trees. The opposite side of clothing and trees is darker. You should also add shadow under the girl and if you want to you can darken her eye shadows.
With the grey layer set on Overlay your picture should look like below.
Step 11 - More Shadows
According to me picture would look more dramatic if it has more shadows. You've already added some in previous step but in this step you're adding even more.
The process of adding shadows is the same as in step 10. Add new layer on the top of all layers and name it e.g. MORE SHADOWS. Grab the Paint Bucket Tool (G), pick #808080 grey color and fill the layer with it. To blend the layer properly with the rest of the image change its Blending Mode from Normal to Overlay.
