The first thing that I will do to paint with the Brush Tool the lips. Create a new layer and call it Lips. The color I've used is #b00808.
Change the blending mode of Lips Layer from Normal to Color Burn , Opacity 90%.
Place the clown on the left side of the image...this will be his final place because as you saw in the initial image I will add a background image!
With the Pen Tool draw a shape like in the image , the color is white. Call this layer Mouth. Go to blending options and add a stroke , color black:
Duplicate this layer Mouth. Merge Mouth layer and Mouth copy layer. Now with the Eraser Tool delete the part that covers the lips and teeth. Change the opacity of this layer to 78%.
Use the Eraser Tool opacity 12 % size 3-6 to show the face features and wrinkles so that the make up looks real!
Create a new layer and with the Brush Tool , color #201005 draw an area around the eyes. To look real use Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur :
Let's change the eyes a little bit to look like scary glass eyes. Draw a circle with the Ellipse Tool .
The circle color is white and add a stroke 2 px , color #afb9a8.
Change the Blending Mode of this layer from Normal to Darken 100%!
Add another make up element to the eyes. With the Pen Tool draw a shape like in the image , color #1a100b.
Step 8 – Hair
The hardest part of this photo manipulation was adding the hair. I am not using the graphic tablet even if I had one :) .... I will learn to use it soon!
So with the Brush Tool and this color #d43a05 draw a simple hair shape like in the image. Use the other two colors to give contrast. You will have to use small size brush for creating hair wires!
When you draw hair you may want to use Dodge Tool to lighten parts of the hair , Burn Tool to darken the bottom areas of the hair. I also use Smudge Tool (small size 3 px, strength 85%) to create hair wires.
The result is up to you!
Step 9 – Red Nose
Draw a red circle in the nose area. Apply Gradient Overlay and Stroke to this circle like in the image:
The colors and the settings for the gradient , lighter color #ff2400 (24%) , darker #be0707 (58%) and the darkest #8d0303 (100%):
The color for the stroke is #a70808:
Duplicate this layer and merge the two nose layers. With the Burn Tool and the Dodge Tool darken and lighten the nose to look like in the image:
It is impossible to look exactly like this because I can't do it twice with an identical result. You can also adjust the intensity of the color if you think it is too saturated from Image – Adjustments – Hue/Saturation.
Lets add a nose shadow to look more realistic. Because the initial photo did not contain the nose there is any shadow on the face. Press CTRL and click the nose layer thumbnail. You will see that a selection was made. Create a new layer below nose layer and call it shadow.
Fill the selection in the shadow layer with #190202.
Move the shadow downwards and to the right.
Now lower the opacity of the layer to 70% and to soften the edges go to Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur and set the radius to 1.5 px:
Step 10 – Dress the Clown
A clown in the T-shirt not so wright so I have found this really nice clown outfit
Crop only the outfit and add it to our clown.
