French Twists Icon Tutorial
go from this:
I used Photoshop CS2, but I'm sure it can be translated. No Selective Colour/Curves.
Warning: Image Heavy.
crop your base.
duplicate, set to screen 60%.
duplicate the base again, bring to the top. set to soft light, 100%.
colour burn, 100%.
duplicate your base again.
set to overlay, 100%.
erase parts covering the skin. this gives it a really nice glow and contrast,
without needing curves or brightness/contrast layers.
new layer, paste with scanlines.
erase parts covering face.
you may not need this, but i didn't like the bit in the corner.
so I covered it with black using a round, soft-edged brush.
normal, 70% opacity.
stamp layer (alt+ctrl+shift+e).
colour burn, 30%.
i combined two brushes, both by wonderland__.
hope you like them. that was my first tut!
please show me your versions!
and let me know if you have any questions.
