Diffuse Remove Eyelashes

o Step 11: Removing the eyelashes

To really dial in the hidden eyelid, I'll order up a temporary shape with the eyelid closed. I am also going to start the painful process of removing eyelashes. Unfortunately, I have to do some cloning. I Warp as much of the upper eyelid photograph as I can. I want as much pure photograph to clone from as possible.

O Step 12: The trick to cloning

The trick to cloning is using 90-100% opacity. You don't want to clone at lower level transparencies, which will produce fogged photography The reason I don't recommend cloning is because it relies heavily on the artist's skills to prevent repeating patterns. Only really good texture artists can make cloning invisible. My eye can always pick up sloppy cloning

O Step 15: Back to the original

We have two versions of Monika with makeup. One with and without the eyelashes. I want to go back to compare the original for a second.

O step 16: White glove test

Because there has been a modeling change, I want to make one final test. I overlay 3D.SK's photograph over the model. The eyes seem to have dead-on alignment. If there's ever a place you don't want to be off it's the eyes. The eyebrows are also off.
