i'm new into Adobe Lightroom and don't have any basic skills with it. I want to ask a question that maybe this is very basic to you.

Please take a look on picture below, the object's face is blocked with black color, how to block face with Adobe Lightroom like this? Can i done this with brush/something else?

    Is there a reason you need to use Lightroom for this? It would be much simpler in our favourite image editor (Photoshop, GIMP, Paint.NET, etc). – Philip Kendall Mar 5 '17 at 8:36
  • Thanks for your answer and suggestion. I just curious is there any way to do this with Lightroom. Anyway, thanks :D – Dhimas Yoga Mar 5 '17 at 8:40

Yes, it's possible and very easy. Choose Adjustment Brush tool (K in Wiindows), set Exposure to the lowest level and paint on parts of the image you want to be black. If the "blackness" is transparent, just paint once again over it!

Here is an example:
