In this Photoshop tutorial, you will learn how to combine brushes and color effects, which will make anyone gasp at the sight of your work.
Open your photo. How about this?
The picture itself is already looking spectacular!
So let’s get started …
Using tools known to you, create a selection around the girl. When the selection is ready, press Ctrl + J to get the selection to a new layer.
If you turn off the eye at the background layer, it will turn out like this:
Now put the eye back in place!
In the layers palette you should have the same picture:
For further work, you will need to load brushes.
Download them you can HERE.
Unzip the archive, select the brush named Odysee_brush and install it into the program.
Create a new layer in the middle.
Select a brush as shown in the picture:
On the created layer with a white brush, draw something like this:
Wonderful! We continue!
Set brush Green lotus.
Create a new layer at the top.
Take this brush:
Set the color in the palette # c6eaf9 and click on the created layer with a brush. Ctrl + T – rotate the brush and place it in the right place.
I hope you get the sense of working with brushes. Now, at your discretion, continue to fill the space around the girl, using other brushes from the loaded ones.
Take the tool Finger
Select brush: (Chalk / Chalk 60 px) This brush is in Photoshop by default.
Go to Window> Brushes (Window – Brushes) or simply press F5 and set the following settings:
Dynamics of the form:
Duplicate the layer with the cut girl once. Go to the lower copy of the layer with the girl and start processing its edges with the Finger tool:
Change layer blending mode to Color dodge (Lightening basics)
Duplicate the top layer with a copy of the cut out girl, the “copy 2” layer will appear at the top.
Continue smearing around the edges …
Change the blending mode to Softlight (Soft light).
Already not bad! But we continue …
Click on the topmost layer in the palette.
Go to menu Layer> New adjustment layer> Curve (Layer – New Adjustment Layer – Curves)
Lower the center of the curve like this:
The image has become more expressive:
That’s not all!
Again Layer> New adjustment layer> Gradient Map (Layer – New Adjustment Layer – Gradient Map)
Try different gradients to your photo, here are some options:
Mode = Overlay / Overlap. Opacity / Opacity = 70%
Mode = Multiply / Multiplication. Opacity / Opacity = 70%
Mode = Soft light. Opacity / Opacity = 60%
So we finished this lesson! Try it now you. Good luck!
