tutorial -14- dear avril


From Image hosted by Photobucket.com to Image hosted by Photobucket.com



First off, I noticed that the image was a bit blurry, so I sharpened the image twice. Using the SMUDGE tool (hardness 40, opacity 40) I smoothed out the skin, and ONLY the skin. (I left the lips and the eyes alone).

I duplicated the image once. I set the new layer to SCREEN 100%, and then I desaturated it. I merged all the layers.

I took this texture (made by myself) and I set it to SCREEN 86%.

I took this texture (made by scarsonchest) and I set it to DARKEN 100%. Using the PUSH tool (hardness 10, opacity 100) I pushed away some of the rough areas of the texture that covered the face. I merged all the layers.

I duplicated the image once. I set the new layer to SCREEN 62%, and then I desaturated it.

I added some text (made by aronia).

By the way, for anyone who's interested, I just started a graphics community, and I'm looking to get it started. If anyone's interested in becoming a member/maintainer of the community, then please join it (_elite_icons_. :)

I'm just curious about . Is it like i_elitists, or is it just a place for elite icon-makers to post their icons?

_elite_icons_ is basically a community to share your icons, your icon tutorials, as well as your graphics (banners, wallpapers, layouts... etc.). I haven't worked out the finer points, as this is the first community I've started. I still need to add rules and whatnot.
