On a white canvas, I used a fairly soft brush and drew an outline
step 2 of 18
With a large fairly soft brush, I colored in the rest of the area
step 3 of 18
I didn't like the color, so I went over that color with a new color
step 4 of 18
I drew an outline for "eyeliner" with a fairly soft brush in a dark gray
step 5 of 18
I erased a bit of the dark gray and then made a new layer and added the blue with a brush at about 80% hardness. NO shapes were used at all for this whole picture because it is against the rules.
step 6 of 18
On another layer, I added the black with a brush at about 80% hardness also.
step 7 of 18
With a square brush at very low density and a lighter color, I added a bit of depth to the black
step 8 of 18
On the blue layer, I used a low density brush at different blue tones and drew lines inward toward the black
step 9 of 18
I then changed my color and brush shape to white and added the low density color to the eye
step 10 of 18
I then used a soften brush to soften the dense dots I just put on the eye. This is not a filter or a gaussion blur; this is a retouch tool which has "soften, smudge, push, etc"
step 11 of 18
Using the eraser brush at a very low density, I erased some of the black around the edges
step 12 of 18
I added the glint on a new layer with a 80% soft brush and added a slight reflection with a soft low opacity brush and used the retouch tool to soften it.
I smudged some of the face color into the whites of the eyes and then added a bit of white in the corner to give the eye some depth
step 13 of 18
On a new layer, I started to draw the lashes with a size 1 brush
step 14 of 18
I went to a size 2 brush and added more lashes
step 15 of 18
After adding the lashes, I used the soften retouch tool and then added a bit of color on the corner of the eye and underneath, I tried to give some "wrinkles" so to speak (which is very subtle) by drawing lines of a slightly lighter color than the face color
step 16 of 18
With a big soft brush, I added purple eyeshadow to the upper eye and then added an eyebrow by painting a soft plain brush in a brownish color at low opacity and then at full opacity at a size 1 and 2, added the hairs like I did the lashes.
step 17 of 18
I added more hair to the brow and then used the retouch tool to soften them
step 18 of 18
Using a very soft large brush at very low opacity, I added a bit of lightness to underneath the eye
