Step 10

Next I started working on his skin texture and his earring. To make the dots on his skin, I used the Hard Round brush. I followed the reference image and placed the dots appropriately, painting them according to the size on the image. Those dots have got some light and shading as well; I minutely observed the dots in the image and followed their example. I used copy and paste and transformed these dots according to image (Fig.35).

While doing the earring, I used the Hard Round brush with a basic golden color, and after that I used dark and light shades as well as highlights. At this point the image was almost complete - it just needed a background (Fig.36).

Step 11

To create the background I started with a new layer that I would then place under all the other layers. In this layer I wanted to use cool and dark colors on the background to maintain the focus of the portrait. So first I used a dark, blackish green color. After that I added some light tones on the lower side and some dark tones on the upper side. Here I wanted to keep some rough tonal effects so I did very little smudging (Fig.37).

After I'd created the background, I painted some extra lights, darker tones and some extra wrinkles on his neck by using the Burn tool. And here's the final image (Fig.38).

I'm happy with my final result. I hope you all like it and that this Making Of has been useful to read. If you have any queries, you can always contact me through my email or blog.

Thanks for reading!
