Tutorial -1- Watercolours

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



1. First things first. Find an image you like, select an interesting area of the image, crop it down to a square, and then resize it 100x100. Sharpen the icon twice, and then using the SMUDGE tool (Hardness 54, Opacity 61%), smooth out the skin, as well as the clothes. Desaturate the image to about –50.

2. Duplicate the image once. Blur the new layer using Gaussian Blur, with a radius set to about 1.90. Set this layer to DARKEN 100%. Merge the two layers, and then sharpen the image once.

3. Create a new raster layer with the colour #E8B722 (it’s a nice golden colour. you can choose a different colour if you wish, but keep it rich). Set this layer to OVERLAY 100%.

4. Then I took this texture, by inxsomniax, and I set it to HARD LIGHT 100%. I used the eraser tool (Opacity 7, Hardness 2) to erase the areas covering his face and parts of his hair.

5. I grabbed this texture, which I took from nardasarmy, and I set it to BURN 100%. Then I put in some random text.

6. I took this texture (I can’t remember who created it. If someone knows, please tell me, so I can credit them), and I changed it to Negative Image. I flipped it and placed it between the text and set it to SCREEN 100%… and voila.
