Split personality

Hello! Having done this lesson, you will learn how to do this kind of work:

Split personality

You can make use of this lesson to make wallpaper (like me) or an avatar.
Let’s get started!
I took a photo of my favorite actor.

Split personality

Create a new document with the size that you need as a result. We insert a photo there.
Layer – Duplicate Layer.
Editing – Transform – Flip Horizontally.

Split personality

Make one of the layers translucent (Opacity 60%). Slide the layers towards each other so that the axis where they will merge will be in the middle.

Split personality

Now duplicate both layers. You will have four layers. Two left and two right.
One left and one right need to blur. Filter – Blur – Motion Blur. The angle is 0 degrees, my offset is 20 pixels.

Split personality

For all four layers add a vector mask Split personality. Select GradientSplit personality “Foreground to Transparent”, that is, from the primary color to a colorless background. Primary color is black. Now, holding Shift to make it smooth, draw gradients in Vector masks.

There will have to tinker to achieve a good result.
In the blurred layers, you need to hide everything except areas where one head will turn into another. And in the initial layers of black gradient must fill in the blurred parts of the face. You can also work with a soft brush, if this is more convenient for you.

In the layers palette, it looks like this

Split personality

It should turn out like this (sometimes the layers need to be moved towards each other)

Split personality

For better effect, I added blurry layers. Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur, radius 2.0.

Split personality

Now restore the background. I was lucky, I have it almost homogeneous. I just copied the blue background, blurred it according to Gauss. You can also cut doubled heads and paste on a new background. Do it to your taste.

Split personality

We just need a spectacular background!
I took this picture

Split personality

And transformed it into this form

Split personality

Make the same picture you learn in the lesson Kaleidoscope.
Insert a kaleidoscope on our heads, stretch the width of the canvas. Blend mode change to Soft light.

Split personality

Using the lasso, select the head area by setting Feathering somewhere around 20 pixels. In the Kaleidoscope Layer Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur (I have a radius of 7).

Split personality

Layer – Duplicate Layer. For the second layer Kaleidoscope overlay mode Overlap. The selection should have remained, but if not, the Selection – Select again. Clear the area by clicking Delete. If there are patterns on the faces, remove them. EraserSplit personality or in vector mask mode.

Split personality

Combine the four layers with the heads. Add Vector MaskSplit personality and in her soft BrushSplit personality make a smooth transition to the neck.

Split personality

Create a new layer under the kaleidoscope layers. Make the main color dark blue and fill the layer. Opacity 50%. Add Vector MaskSplit personality and with a soft brush, return the face and a little area around it.

Split personality

And the final touch. Add an inscription. Standard thick Impact font. Large write TWICE (Twice). For text, apply the following layer styles.

Split personality

Split personality

It should look like this

Split personality

Make a reflection. Duplicate the text layer, right-click on the layer that appears and select Clear layer style, and then Rasterize the text.
Editing – Transform – Flip Vertically.
Move the label down.
Apply layer style color overlay, Colour 2a4e4b.
Add Vector MaskSplit personality and Gradient remove the bottom part.

Split personality

Editing – Transformation – Distortion.
Pull the left and right lower corners to an equal distance.

Split personality

Well that’s all. Layer – Flatten. I hope you all succeeded! Thanks for attention.
