Tutorial 08 ; Stock Coloring - Aurora Borealis

From to
USING PS7 - PSP Friendly :)
{Curves, Selective Coloring w/a Color Balance equivalent}

As requested by snicketcrazy13.
This tut is loosely based on this tutorial by jaysus.
Your base is really important as to how the colors will turn out.




01. I start with this image of the Aurora Borealis from Getty Images. I crop & resize it to 100x100. Duplicate the base (Ctrl+J) and set to Screen at 100%. (Opacity depends on your base).

WHERE ARE MY ADJUSTMENT LAYERS? - Screenshot

02. Create a new adjustment layer. (Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Selective Coloring or see the screenshot above). Enter these settings:

REDS: Cyan: -100, Magenta: +30, Yellow: +32, Black: 0
NEUTRALS: Cyan: -30 - Leave everything else at 0.

Change the opacity to 30%.

**For the color balance equivalent, click here.**
Leave the opacity of the color balance adjustment layer at 100%.


> or

I've also noticed, you can also leave that layer out completely. I just wanted to emphasize the reds in my icon.

03. Create a new layer (Ctrl+Shift+N) and fill it with #000E25. Set the blend mode to Exclusion at 100%.

>

04. Create a new layer and fill it with #135384 and set the blend mode to Exclusion at 30%.

>

05. Create another new layer and fill it with #62C2DA (#62C2DA) and set the blend mode to Color Burn at 100%.

>

06. Create a new adjustment layer. (Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation). Increase the Saturation to +20.

>

07. Create another new adjustment layer; this time Curves. (Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves). Here are the screenshots, since there are a lot of points. They don't have to be exact; in fact, play around :) - RGB, RED.

>

08. Finally, create a new layer and fill it with #F1AC5E (#F1AC5E). Set the blend mode to Multiply at 20%. The opacity will depend on how you want your icon to look.

> or

As you can see, the difference between the first one (Selective Coloring) and the second one (Color Balance) is not even distinguishable. & there you have it! I'd love see your results :)
