Tutorial -10- Fairytale Kiera

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




As always, I started off with a regular image. I cropped it down to a square and then resize it to 100 x 100 pixels. I flattened the image and then sharpened it 3 times. Using the SMUDGE tool (hardness 40, opacity 40), I smoothed out the skin, and ONLY the skin – as well as the background area. Then I duplicated the image and set the top layer to SCREEN 72%.

Create a new layer with #F5E4BB and set it to DARKEN 100%.

Take this texture, made my dearest, and set it to HARD LIGHT 100%

Copy Merge the image now. (edit > copy merge). Then paste it as a new layer on top of all the other layers. Using the DEFORM tool, resize the topmost layer so it’s a smaller square. Place it in the bottom right-hand corner. Sharpen it once. Flip it horizontally.

Take this texture, also made by dearest, and set it to LIGHTEN 100%. Take this layer and move it below the layer with the smaller square. On this same texture layer, draw a black rectangle using the SHAPE tool. Add some text.

Take this texture, made by ashke_icons, and set it to HARD LIGHT 100%. Using the SELECTION tool (shape: rectangle), select the areas covering the faces and cut them out.

Great tutorial! I'm still learning Photoshop, so I was a little shaky in some parts, but I really like the result I got.

I love the tutorial, it was super fun to try one of these. I usually come up with stuff on my own but it ws fun to follow directions for once and see the result.

Nice easy to follow tutorial :)

xD I have a question. Where the hell is the Deform tool located?! Heh. It's probably right in front of my face...

I use Paint Shop Pro 8, and for me, the Deform Tool is located on the left-hand side of the screen... and should look like this...




If you don't see this tool anywhere, you can try hovering your curser over each tool on the left-hand side, and a little pop-up title will tell you what the tool is. Look for something that says 'Straighten Tool', 'Perspective Correction Tool', or 'Mesh Warp Tool'... when you find one of those, click on the little tiny black arrow beside the tool image, and three more tools should come up. The one you want is... yeah... the deform tool. (ignore all of this if you already knew :))
