Critique Please

Any suggestions other than the weak eyelashes? Anyone know how to improve eyelashes without them looking really fake?

Re: Critique Please

I've had a lot of success using the Dune Grass brush for pumping up lashes.

1. Select the Dune Grass brush, create a new layer and make your foreground color match the existing lash colors.

2. Use the Brush pallette to adjust brush shape, shape dynamics and scattering. This will allow you to add the lashes in a random fashion, to keep it looking realistic, but you can set the parameters and size of how they populate.

3. Once you've added them, you can set the opacity of the layer to blend.

You can use this technique to simply fill in some space or go crazy and make some wooly mammoth caterpillers if you like.

Re: Critique Please

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately my version of PS doesn't have the invert axis option and that makes it really hard to get the right angle. I Googled it and found a really interesting way using the pen tool that worked quite well although it is a lot harder to do. I'll experiment with both methods and see what I can come up with. Thanks again.
