Involves selective coloring
Not picture heavy
Requires basic knowledge


Today we will be making this beautiful icon featuring Mary-Kate Olsen :)

>>

The coloring isn't too dramatic but it gives a nice touch to event photo's like the one I chose. I haven't tried it with candid's or photoshoots so I'm not sure how it turns out but give it a try, it might be pre-tee cool. Let's get started:

1. Prep your base (I sharpened the edges to make it more defined)
2. Duplicate (Ctrl + J) and set to screen, opacity 30%
3. New color layer, fill with #FFFC00 and set to softlight, opacity 15%
4. New adjustement layer > Selective color (yay!):

Reds
C: -49
M: +15
Y: +15
B: +9

Yellows
C: -10
M: +27
Y: -16
B: -61

Neutrals
C: +45
M: +14
Y: +7
B: -13

5. New adjustement layer > Selective color:

Reds
C: -18
M: -16
Y: -13
B: +91

Yellows
C: -10
M: +12
Y: -16
B: -57

Whites
C: 0
M: 0
Y: 0
B: -39

Neutrals
C: -5
M: 0
Y: -3
B: +10

6. New adjustement layer > Selective color :

Reds
C: +18
M: +20
Y: +5
B: +14

Yellows
C: 0
M: -100
Y: -100
B: 0

7. New adjustment layer > Hue/Saturation > Saturation +10

There we have it! A nice Mary-Kate Olsen icon, looking, dare I say very fabulous. Here's more with the exact same tut:



P.S: I haven't done a tut in like forever so if you notice anything that dosen't seem right then make sure you tell me! I don't want a wrong tut floating around ^_^

Comment's are love!
