Part 4: Painting Faces and Hands

Part 4: Painting Faces and Hands

By Helen Yancy

Likeness is critically important in photo art, and in this tutorial you will learn some tips for painting important details like eyes, nose, mouth and hands. By changing your brush settings so that resaturation is at 0 and bleed is very high, your brush will now act as a blender instead of a cloner. This will allow you to make very small strokes to add in shadows and lights and paint in the edges. Starting in the darker areas will ensure that you don’t lose any detail.
