Supernatural [Sam& Jess] Coloring Tutorial
Program used: PSP7
Translatable? It is.
This tut works with non HQ caps. I know it because I make screencaps off my non HQ tv and it works wonders on them. :)
Hey all! Let's begin.
We have our base:
To this we're going to add a Color Balance layer:
Shadows: 0, 0, 0
Midtones: -100, 0, 0
Highlights: 0, 0, 100
This will be set to Normal at a 100. We'll then duplicate this layer, set it to Color at 51.
Next, we'll copy the base, drag it to the top and set it to Screen at 100. [This can be repeated as many times as needed.]
Now, let's add 5 color layers filled with:
-#FFE6B9 set to Multiply at 51.
-#F69EE0 set to Burn at 28.
-#3292FE set to Soft Light at 100.
-#FEBD32 set to Darken at 15-30. [What better suits the image.]
-#FE5A00 set to Dodge at 15. [Could also be set to Burn, but Dodge works better in almost all bases.]
Now we'll add a Hue/Saturation/Lightness layer.
Saturation at 15, everything else leave blank.
Now we'll add another color layer filled with:
-#0B1237 set to Burn at 5-30 [This one totally depends on the image and your taste.].
One tip: If the icon is too dark and the coloring looks wonky, duplicate the Screen layer we added earlier as many times as possible until it looks good. If on the contrary, the icon is too light, you can merge it and the duplicate it to Soft Light. :)
The coloring is finished here. :)
Some examples - [bases included]
Now, to get to this ->
After the coloring is finished, merge it and the duplicate it. Set this to Screen at 100. You can add a Soft Light for depth.
Then add a scratch brush like this-> Credit: 1greeneye Brushes
Set to Normal at 40, or 32 if you want it lighter. :)
Now we'll add a Hue/Saturation/Lightness layer. Saturation at 9, leave the others empty. :)
This Saturation layer will be set to Color at 100, duplicate it.
Then duplicate once more, but instead of Color, set it to Screen at 100.
Now we have this ->
*You can play around with all the layers for the icon to be as dark/light as you like.
*The second part is pretty simple and can be used without the coloring [ ]. Of course you can also use your own coloring.
*This tutorial more so than others, is perfectly fit to play around. :)
