1. Open the winter background. Cut the model and move into main document.
Open the blonde hair stock, drag it into document, duplicate it and
place one under and another above the girl layer. Hide the hair layer
above the girl. Choose the under one, add layer mask to erase the face
3. Make a new layer, use clone tool to fill the forehead of the girl.
Turn on the hair layer above the girl. Add layer mask to clear the
face. This step is to make the hair thicker and more natural.
5. Hide the hair layer that is on the top, then create a new layer above
the girl layer, use pen tool to make some parts along her shoulders
then hit Ctrl+Enter to make selections, then fill it with color f9bb91.
Set it to Multipy 100% and then set drop shadow with default settings.
6. Create a new layer, use snowflake brushes to make some "dress buttons" then apply Drop shadow:
7. Come back to dress layer, i will adjust color to be easier to change in future. Hit Ctrl+U, choose settings:
8. Turn on another hair layer, merge all layers except background. Press Ctrl+M to adjust curves:
9. Open the tiara psd file. Resize and move into main document:
Add layer mask to erase unecessary parts then apply drop shadow:
Use warp tool to transform it a bit:
I use curves to change the color:
10. New layer, use magic brush with settings:
Then paint on the tiara:
11. New layer, use foliage brushes, number 640, 3with 445 px paint on the side of her eyes:
Add layer mask to erase like the pic below:
Duplicate it, apply Flip horizontal then move to another eyes. Lower opacity of two these layers to 70%.
12. Create a new layer, set to overlay:
Use dodge and burn tool to make up the eyes, darken the edges and lighten the light blobs :
13. New layer again, use hard brush, 6 px , white color with different opacity to trace along the eyelids:
14. New layer with the same way above, use burn tool to darken the edges and dodge to lighten the nose bridge.
Now we will retouch the lips. I've thought that her lips looks not
really good and i use Turbulence tool from Liquify after stamping
visible all layers. I move lips a bit down to soften her look.
After that her lips looks blurrier so i make a new layer, use Sharpen
tool to make lips look more visible ( remember check Sample All Layers
on property bar).
