Ap­ply ba­sic shad­ows

I set a new layer to Over­lay and use the Gra­di­ent tool to es­tab­lish my ba­sic light­ing. Once I’m happy with this, I cre­ate a new layer and start lightly air­brush­ing in shad­owed ar­eas and high­light brighter ar­eas, such as the nose, mouth and eyes. I build over this a cou­ple of times un­til I’m happy with the over­all look that I’m de­vel­op­ing.

Adding tex­ture

I use an as­sort­ment of tex­tured brushes to add a bit more di­men­sion to my work. Some of my favourite brushes for this are from Kyle T Web­ster’s UL­TI­MATE Me­gaPack, which you can buy at I want to play around with gritty brushes so I switch be­tween my lay­ers and keep build­ing tex­ture and tone as I go.
