MissingxLullaby's first coloring tutorial

Open up whatever image you'll be using and do whatever it is you usually do.

I'll be using this cropped icon of Amy Lee:

1. Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Selective color

Reds: +40, +23, -37, 0
Yellows: +39, -11, -13, 0
Blues: +60, +41, +66, +20
Whites: +20, +8, -18, 0

2. Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Selective color (Again ;D)

Reds: -93, +80, -51, 0
Blues: +69, -74, -39, 0
Neutrals: +27, +18, +5, 0
Blacks: -5, +38, -7, -3

Set to Saturation (50%)

3. Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation


Hue: +13
Saturation: +48
Lightness: +28

Set to Color (100%)

And you're done! Now you can add whatever textures and effects you'd like. ;D
