Tutorial -5- Cho Chang

How to go from Image hosted by Photobucket.com to Image hosted by Photobucket.com



1. As always, pick an image that you like, crop it, and then resize it to 100x100. Duplicate the base twice. Sharpen the image twice. Using the SMUDGE tool (opacity 44, hardness 54) smooth out the skin (and ONLY the skin). Desaturate the image to –44 (adjust > hue and saturation > saturation)

2. Take this gradient and set it to HARD LIGHT 100%. Duplicate the base layer, bring it on top, and set it to SOFT LIGHT 100%.

3. Take this texture, made by bombay, and set it to SCREEN 100%. Using the ERASER tool (opacity 9, hardness 2) erase some of the areas that are on the face.

4. Take this texture, made by ohfreckle, colorize it to give it a reddish tint, set it to LIGHTEN 100%. Using the ERASER tool (opacity 9, hardness 2) erase some of the areas that are on the face, clothes, and hair. And voila, you’re finished. J

Great tutorial.

Question though, does anyone know where I can find larger brushes of the film strip? I'd like to use it in a header for a site I'm doing.

I think it's actually really good. The only thing I would suggest is erasing the topmost layer a bit more, cause it's still covering her hair and some of her face. Other than that, it's good. For a second I thought you had just reposted mine, lol.

Thankyou! I did exactly the same, except for the erasion the sparkles (I smudged them out) and at the end i added another layer of the cropped text at the bottom on "darken"- and now i can actually see it! Thankyou!
