Step 05

Now I'll show how I smudged all the colors. Mostly I prefer Spatter brushes (Fig.13) for smudging or blending purposes. After selecting the brush, I selected the brush properties (F5) and adjusted the Scattering value, added some Other Dynamics and also Noise. Then in Scattering I adjusted Scatter to 46%, ticked Both Axes and set the Scatter Control to off, Count to 3, Count Jitter to 10% and the Count Jitter Control to Pen Pressure. Then I selected the Brush Tip Shape and just turned off Spacing. Now my Smudge brush is ready for use (Fig.14 - 16).

I used on basic colors of his face like this way. You can see examples of Fig.17.

I smudged all the colors of his face with dark and light colors. I decided which parts should be highlighted according to the source of light.


Step 06
In this stage I used the same layer and settings as before, but worked more precisely on further detailing this time. I used more colors on his face and worked on the detailing of the nose, mouth and eyes. I always tried to maintain the similarity with my reference pictures, and catch those minute special features which would make the image more of an accurate look-a-like.

Here I started adding details onto the eyes. At this point, I was trying to maintain a proper balance of dark and light colors (Fig.18).
