The Ears

Then create the base shape for the right ear behind the right eye and in front of the head. Use #a61a0d for color.

Manage them by grouping.

Step 44

Do the same way to create the left ear.

Step 45

Then create this part. I call it ‘left side’. Draw the shape of the base behind the left ear. Use #ad941d for color.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 46

In order to get a bit of a depth for the ‘left side’, copy the shape and change the color to #85700f. Put the copy behind the ‘base shape’ and nudge it a bit to the right and lower it a bit too.

Step 47

Add Pattern Overlay and Stroke for for the ‘base’ layer. For the pattern use Grayscale Paper > Fibers 1.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 48

Add a pattern for the base with the brush. You may use this brush or create your own. Set the color to #a61a0d. And then create a Clipping Mask.

After creating a Clipping Mask, we can see why we added Stroke onto the base layer. This is to get a gap between the pattern and the edge of the base shape.

Step 49

Then add Inner Shadow and Bevel and Emboss.

Step 50

Create two circles with #ede9d0 color. Then add Inner Shadow and Satin.

Step 51

Draw curves with #ad941d. Add Drop Shadow and Bevel and Emboss for these curves.

Step 52

Create a new layer for adding shadow. But this time we won’t create a clipping mask because clipping mask layers will only influence the curves. We’ll use layer mask. Select from base shape for this ‘shadow layer’.

Balinese Barong Mask

Create a layer mask by clicking Add layer mask icon. And set the Blend Mode to Multiply.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 53

Activate the ‘shadow layer’, not the layer mask. Make sure that the layer thumbnail is surrounded by a frame. Then paint the shadow area black to create shadows. Use a soft round brush with low opacity and low hardness.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 54

Use the same way for highlights. Set Blend Mode to Screen.

Manage them by grouping.

Step 55

Create the ‘right side’ behind the head.

Step 56

For the top left part. Draw this shape and name it ‘base’. Then add Pattern Overlay with Grayscale Paper > Fiber 1.

Step 57

Copy the shape without copying the layer style. Arrange it underneath the shape layer and change the color to #85700f. Name it ‘back’ then do some editing if necessary in order to get a 3D view for this top left part. Don’t forget to give highlights and shadows to it.

Step 65

Then add highlights and shadows to this ‘top left’ part. And don’t forget to manage them by grouping.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 66

Do the same to create the ‘top right’ part of the Barong.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 67

Let’s create the ‘top center’ part. Draw this shape with #ad941d color. Then add Pattern Overlay with Grayscale Paper > Fiber 1.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 68

Copy the shape without copying the layer style. Arrange it to the back and change the color to #85700f. Name it ‘back’ then do some editing if necessary.

Balinese Barong Mask

Group them.

Step 69

Hide the base shape layer and draw the curves with #ad941d color. Then apply Drop Shadow and Bevel and Emboss.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 70

Draw the other shape. The color setting is stil the same, #ad941d. Then apply Bevel and Emboss.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 71

Let’s create the ornament. Draw a few red beads then apply Drop Shadow and Bevel and Emboss.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 72

Create the other beads in #2b2bd9 color and apply Drop Shadow and Bevel and Emboss. Use the same setting as the red beads for these layer styles.

Balinese Barong Mask

Also create the teardrop shapes in this color setting: #ede9d0 and apply Bevel and Emboss.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 73

Bring back the hidden layer. Add highlights and shadows. Manage them by grouping.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 74

After that, create the ‘top part’, still with #ad941d color. Then add Pattern Overlay with the previous settings. We can copy the layer style from the ‘base’ layer.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 75

Add another layer to add depth like we did previously. Add highlights and shadows onto the ‘base’.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 76

Then create the ‘left back’ and the ‘left side’. Apply Pattern Overlay and Stroke to the ‘base’. Create the depth. Add pattern by brushing, apply Inner Shadow and Bevel and Emboss onto the pattern then create a clipping mask. Then add shadow.

We won’t create the ‘right back’ part because it’s hidden from view anyways.

Step 77

Afterwards, let’s create the left bottom part. Draw the shape with #ad941d color setting and apply Pattern Overlay and Stroke like before. Also give depth this part. Then, draw the following curves, lines and circles with the same color setting.Then apply Drop Shadow and Bevel and Emboss on them.

Add highlights and shadows with layer mask. And manage them by grouping.

Balinese Barong Mask
Step 82

Do the same to create the right bottom part of our Barong Mask. For the bottom center part, we can copy the lotus from top part of the Barong.
