Tutorial 005



Ok, this tutorial was requested by perfect_angel04 and it's for this banner:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

TUTORIAL #005

1. Firstly, take this picture and erase all of the background around Robert. This takes a while and is quite difficult to get neat, but it's worth it.

2. Then post it onto a new (461x264) canvas. [Use whatever size canvas you feel like, I didn't use all of the Robert pic, so just play around with it] Duplicate the layer, set it to Screen 58% and then duplicate it again and set it to Soft Light 100%. Sharpen the Soft Light Layer once (Filter >> Sharpen >>Sharpen)

3. Then flatten the image, duplicate it and set it to Soft Light 100%

4. Then, duplicate the layer below and shift it to the left like so:

and set it to Colour 100% to get this:

5. Duplicate the layer below again and delete some of Robert's face like so: (This is easier to do when it is set on Lighten, it's only to make sure that it looks good and that his face isn't covered up)

and set it to Lighten 100% to give this:

and then Flatten the image.

From then on, you just play around and make it look good. I duplicated the layer, horizontally flipped it, added text and brushes by dearest but you can do whatever you want with it.

I'm not sure if this works on all images, but I hope this is useful and yeah, good luck everyone!

I tried to use it on an icon, and came up with this:

So I guess it'll work, if you like that sort of thing.
