Tutorial -7- Naomi, Naomi

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 (and ONLY the skin). Duplicate the base. Set the topmost layer to SCREEN 100% and desaturate it completely. Duplicate this top layer.

Duplicate the topmost layer once and set it to HARD LIGHT 100%.

Using the SELECTION TOOL, select a rectangular portion of the image (vertical), then go to Edit > Copy Merged (ctrl+shift+C). Paste it as a layer.

Take this texture, created by ohfreckle, and set it to SCREEN 100%. Move this layer so that it’s the second from the top (right below the rectangular vertical image you pasted before). If you see that your top layer is too big to fit into the whiter areas of the texture, take the SELECTION TOOL again and cut off the sides so it fits. If it’s too small, make it larger using the DEFORM TOOL.

loving this but... it didnt work for me. Im using psp7, and the smudge did nothing for the image in the first steps, and desaturating it afterwards just left it looking really bland, unlike yours.

Gonna try some more as loving the effect.

Yep, all of these tutorials are made using PSP8... I haven't used PSP7 in ages so I don't know if the same effects work the same way - but I guess they don't. I'll look into it, though, for later tutorials.

Hey, thanks for liking it. :)

Which picture? The one of Naomi Watts? No. It's just a picture of her, from a photoshoot. Wasn't Final Fantasy computer animation, or anime or something? I don't think Naomi Watts was in it.
