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


As always, pick an image, crop it to a square, and then resize it to 100 x 100 pixels. Sharpen the image twice, then using the SMUDGE tool (opacity 40, hardness 42) smooth out the skin. Duplicate the base. Set the topmost layer to SCREEN 100% and desaturate it. Create a new layer with #0A2134 and set it to EXCLUSION 100%.

Take this gradient and set it to OVERLAY 100%.

Take this gradient and set it to SOFT LIGHT 100%.
Image hosted by Photobucket.com - > Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Take this texture, made by inxsomniax_ and set it to SOFT LIGHT 100%. Using the ERASER tool (opacity 9, hardness 6) erase some of the areas the cover the face.

Take this texture, made by dearest and set it to MULTIPLY 100%.
Image hosted by Photobucket.com - > Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Take this texture, made by pocket_icons and set it to LIGHTEN 100%.
Image hosted by Photobucket.com - > Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Take this texture, also made by pocket_icons and set it to SOFT LIGHT 100%. Using the ERASER tool, erase the parts that cover the face as well as the clothing and the hair.

Take this texture, (I don’t know who it was made by, so if someone knows, please tell me) and set it to SOFT LIGHT 100%. Using the ERASER tool, erase some of the parts that cover his face as well as the clothing and the hair.
Image hosted by Photobucket.com - > Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Merge all the layers. Duplicate the base and set the topmost layer to OVERLAY 100%.
Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Add some text. I took this from iconisms. Create a new layer with #F6E2BC and set it to DARKEN 100%. And voila!
