Go fur­ther with brushes

Photoshop Creative - - BRUSH TOOL -

tip 1 hard erase

While the whole il­lus­tra­tion is painted us­ing Soft Brush, ar­eas such as eye­lids and nostrils are be­ing more clearly de­fined than oth­ers by hard eras­ing or hard mask­ing, which helps to cre­ate a sharp con­trast.

tip 2 soft mask­ing

Fur­ther con­trast can be added around the nos­tril ar­eas by soft mask­ing the nose shad­ings to cre­ate a slight high­light on the nos­tril edges against the darker shades.

tip 3 Cre­ate tex­tures

The soft tex­tures on the fore­head can be cre­ated us­ing a slightly blurred noise layer with Soft­light blend­ing mode, us­ing a Soft Brush to un­veil the tex­tures through mask­ing.
