Above is The Girl With the Pearl Earrings with my face in it. Below is the original painting. I also included in this post the original self portrait I took of my face to put in the painting. I used the smudge tool and then finished with the sponge tool to make it look as if I was put in the painting. I also used low opacity paint to make my skin color not as bright. I even used the dodge tool a little bit in the collar area.
