i've been working on a batch of Marie Antoinette icons, and whenever I look through them, this certain icon sticks out for me. So I decided to write a tutorial for it. :x
in PS7. should be compatible though.
first, we start off with the screencap from KirstenImages.com
& crop it down to 100x100.
i ended up with this:
next you duplicate your base
, setting it to Screen
then you go to layer > new adjustment layer > hue/saturation
, and set the master saturation to +40
. i ended up w/ something better then what I got, but it still has some work to be done.
add another adjustment layer, only this time for selective color
. (layer > new adjustment layer > selective color
and we end up w/ something like this:
i like the colors of marie's face, but the sky is a little too dull for my tastes. so i merge
all the layers (ctrl + shift + e
.) and then add a new layer. then i get my brush tool out, and w/ the color 00C0FF
, i brush over all of the sky, but exclude marie. it should end up something like this.
i then set that layer to soft light
. and voila! we have our finished result of:questions? concerns? examples of what you got?
feel free to comment this tutorial! i love hearing feedback on what i do. :]
