Great tutorial ReyRey! No surprise about your talent! Cool
I don't remember if I already asked you (maybe alzheimer?)... did you make some traditional illustrations before working with Photoshop? I figure your answer is yes.

This tutorial (and some others you already posted) can be very useful for the ones who want to learn how to carry out nice illustrations, for the ones who want to do more than only photo manipulation.

BTW did you use one or several references?

I think I will play on your PSD file to see if I can bring something... Smile


One reference for the shape. A few reference for the lashes, and the iris.
I have done enough eyes that I don't need too much reference for wetness and textures.
I've created brushes just for these purposes. For this exercise I didn't bother with sketching.
I just used the reference to make the outline but yes normaly I would do pencil sketches and then
scan them in.

OK I'm back! Smile

First, I have to say this illustration doesn't need any changes or adjustments.
It doesn't need to be more realistic.
I usually like to see the artist style, the way an artist use brushes and treat details & colors.
ReyRey gave us a very good example and show great dexterity.

Anyway, I played with skin texture. I thought the skin texture can have more details.
I'll show here one very easy way to make texture... everybody can do it.
Maybe some already know this technique...

1. First, select canvas, copy & merge the whole image in a new layer on top.


2. Add a layer style (pattern overlay effect) to this layer.


3. The pattern overlay (metal landscape) in soft light blending mode. Bahhhh... anyway... maybe you don't need it
in soft light this time, but this blending mode is good for using those textures in low opacity... generally.
Try to choose the right scale.


4. Apply it.


5. Control + click fx logo on the layer. Click Create Layer.


6. The new layer appears. Select canvas, copy the new layer...


7. Add a new alpha channel and paste your selection. Click command + alpha channel thumbnail.


8. The pattern is selected.


9. Click in the top right corner and select New Layer...


10. Make this layer Overlay mode and fill with Overlay-neutral color (50% gray).
Click OK. And now clear the selection and deselect.


11. Add a layer style (Bevel & Emboss). Adjust it the right way. Important detail, the shadow mode in multiply
need a compatible color like average or darker shade of skin (PLEASE NO BLACK... in general don't use black
for shadows in any kind of shadow you make, it needs more subtle shades).


12. I put the texture effect layer at 45% opacity. Now this is what look like the texture.


13. Add a layer mask to this layer and with a soft brush, pen pressure setting or at maybe something like 30% opacity,
take off some details or reduce opacity on some details.


14. The result.

Rey Rey and Claf should go into business together and publish a book.

You guys would be so succesful!!
