1. Start off with your image. I used a cap from OOTP of the four Weasleys. Resize, sharpen; just prep your base. ;)
2. I always up the saturation on my bases. So Layers - New Adjustment Layer - Hue/Saturation. Bring saturation to 43.
3. Selective color layer.
Reds: -100, -33, 100, 100
Yellows: -100, -25, -47
Cyans: 100, 0, -44, -72
Blues: 100, -100, -95, -100
Neutrals: 53, -20, -36
4. Right. Done with coloring for now. Add this texture(I've had it for months, I have no idea who made it) at Screen 100%
5. Add this texture also by someone I do not know. Set it to Multiply 100%.
6. Add this texture by weapon_icons at Multiply 100%
7. Add this texture also by weapon_icons at Multiply 58%
8. Add this scratchy texture by unknown at Screen 21%
8. Add this texture by sanami276 at Multiply 45%
9. Just two more, I promise. :P Add this texture by sanami276 at Screen 9%
10. LAST ONE! Add this loveeeely texture by unknown at Multiply 100%. This is probably my favorite texture of all time.
11. New Curves layer.
RGB: 109, 124
12. New Hue/Saturation Layer. Saturation up to 34.

Your image should look something like this:

14. Add "generation" in Jane Austen 24pt. You can also get this at
