Jennifer Aniston tutorial


I did this basically to make eyes pop, but the whole icon looks shiny  ^.^

FROM screened.jpg image by MaJox    TO   jenn.jpg image by MaJox  

Made in PS

Although tutorials are kinda flexible, remember that it doesn't work with EVERY image, but I should work perfectly if yours has green/blue tones or green/blue eyes ^.^ (like jen's)


First screen your image.
(I screened mine with 20% opacity, but depends on how da the one your using)

Then go to Layers>New Adjustment Layer>Color Balance
Shadows    0   0    0
Midtones   0   -23  +25
Highlights 0   0    -13

Then go to Layers>New Adjustment Layer>Selective Color
Reds     -100  +29  +100  0
Yellows  -55   +12  +17   0
Neutrals +50

Then I wanted to make her eyes pop a little more (because well, that's the whole point) so add another Selective Color layer (we are just going to modufy the cyan)
Cyans   +35 -100 -100  0

Then I added anooother selective color layer (the last one I promise xD) to adjust the color of the hair and skin and eyes again.
Reds     +15    0   0  0
Yellows  -62   -41  0  0
Cyans    +100  +24  0  0

We're done with the selective coloring ^.^ layer.
Since the whole point is making her eyes look prettier than they already are xD. Now we add a new kayer and fill it with  #e2faf9 (it's a very light green) and set it to Color Burn
(It doesn't look like much of a difference here in the mini tiny pic O_o... but it is xD)

Before we add the nest layer we don't want to loose her skinf tone so we add a new fill layer again, this time with #e4ccba and set it to Multiply, opacity 65%
(Again, It doesn't look like much of a difference here in the mini tiny pic but it will be)

Finally add Layer>New Adjustment Layer> Bightness/Contrast
Brightness   +28
Contrast     +27

Now maybe you want to add your icon some text, brishes, textures whatever... this is my final result

I hope you like it and I hope it works
and I hope I didn't screw up the explanation xD
