The effect of the interface of the Iron Man helmet.
In this tutorial, we will create a photo in the Photoshop in the style of the film “Iron Man” (Iron Man).
Create a new document, add a new layer and fill it with black. It uses a size of 1920 x 1200 px.
Now select the appropriate photo. Anyone can become an iron man!
Step 3 – Digital Make Up
Create a new folder in the Layers Palette and name it Face. Then move the photo layer to this new folder. After you do this, for the folder choose Layer> Mask Layer> Show All (Layer> Layer Mask> Reveal All). Now black brush (Brush Tool (B)) paint over areas that we do not need.
Duplicate the layer and select Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur (Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur). For radius use 6 pixels To make some areas dark, select the Dimmer Tool. . Also use the Brightener Tool , to make some areas brighter. Use the example below:
Use the eraser tool (E) to remove areas that need to be kept clear and bright (eyes, beard, hair).
Duplicate the original photo (not a blurred version) and select Filter> Other> Color Contrast (Filter> Other> High Pass). Change the blending mode of this layer to Hard light (Hard Light). You can use the eraser to remove some areas (see the example below).
Sharpness on the face increased.
Choose a layer with an original photo and use the Brightener tool to make the eyes brighter. Use the dimmer tool to make dark areas even darker (hair, beard). These two tools can be used on other layers.
Select Image> Correction> Hue / Saturation (Image> Adjustment> Hue / Saturation). Make the image darker and less saturated. Used here -3 for Hue, -32 for Saturation and -38 for Brightness (Lightness).
Now we need to create several ellipses. Disable visibility for a while lower layers.
So, draw an ellipse, for which use the tool . Once you draw a circle, right-click on the layer – Rasterize the layer. Now take , create a selection with a smaller diameter and click Delete, to remove the inside.
Click Ctrl + J, to create multiple copies of circles.
Use Ctrl + T, to transform.
Since each ring is on its own layer, we can edit each circle separately. Polygonal Lasso tool select the circle segments and delete them to get a similar image:
Use the Arbitrary Shapes tool to create interface elements. Add those elements that you consider necessary (targets, polygons, asterisks, arrows, even text).
If you don’t have any figures, draw them yourself.
Create ovals, but now their extension should come in the opposite direction from those already drawn. Repeat the previous steps to create items. Example:
To the semicircular elements add a layer style – Color overlay (Color Overlay). Color set turquoise #00eaff. Then we reduce the opacity of the layer to thirty%
For each item, apply Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur (Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur). Use a different blur radius for each element. The largest radius of the blur will be at the largest element. The closer the element to the human eye, the smaller the radius.
For some items, Color overlay use green or other shades. It will look much more interesting.
Group the elements that are near the left eye. Select them and click. Ctrl + G.
Duplicate this group, right-click on the title of the duplicated group in the layers palette and select Merge group.
You will have one layer with all the objects. This layer should be at the top of the Left Eye group. Then group this element layer, it will be in the folder. Change the folder overlay mode to Lightening basics (Color Dodge).
Change the opacity to 70% and add style Color Overlay (Color Overlay) for the layer. Use white for color. This will give a glowing effect to the elements.
Also make the right eye. Red is used here for basic Color Overlay. Repeat the same for the right eye.
Add more items. Always repeat the preceding steps to create the same effect on all objects.
Create a new layer above the rest.
Then select the Gradient Tool (G) and click on the gradient color to edit it (1).
Change the Noise gradient (2).
Then change the Roughness to 100% and select Restict Colors and Add Transparency.
After that, select the Cone Gradient (3) and simply fill the layer with a gradient. The starting point of the gradient is the middle of the left eye.
On a layer filled with a color beam, select Image> Correction> Discolor (Image> Adjustments> Desaturate).
Then select Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur (Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur). Blur radius – 6 px.
After that, attach the style of the layer that was used for the other elements. Roll down the opacity to 70%. Use the eraser tool (E) to erase lines close to the eye. Example:
Now just add black areas to make the photo look like a frame from a widescreen movie.
Good luck and inspiration !!!
