Coloring tut

 How to go from 

this:  to this:  or -> In six easy steps!

Alrighty! This is my first tut and I'm nervous so go easy ^^;; 

Step 1: Take your original image

and crop and resize it: 

Step 2: now that we have this we're going to duplicate layer and APPLY IMMAGE on soft light at 100%


Step 3: repeat step two

Step 4: Now we're going to go to IMAGE>>>ADJUST>>>SELECTIVE COLORING

Reds: -100, 0, +100, 0
Yellows: -100, 0, -100, 0
Whites: -100, 0, -5, -24
Neutrals: -10, 0, +22, 0

Step 5: Now we're going to go to IMAGE>>>ADJUST>>>COLOR BALANCE

Midtones: +17, -8, -17
Highlights: +5, -13, -2

Step 6: M'kay now we're going back to IMAGE>>>ADJUST>>>SELECTIVE COLORING

Reds: -100, 0, 0, 0
Yellows: -100, 0, -100, 0
Neutrals: +50, 0, 0, 0

And there! Your done! Oh if you want to get this effect  where her highlights are a darker red go to IMAGE>>>ADJUST>>>SELECTIVE COLORING 
Red: 0, 0, 0. -50 

Well there you have it, my first coloring first tutorial ever x.x;  
I'd love to see your reasults!
Enjoy ^_^
