(PSDCS2) Avatar Tutorial #001

Okay, let’s start making AVATARS!!! First test, I used the Magic Knight Rayearth Character “Fuu” and also called as “Animuni” to my first and header tutorials. The original image is too dark so let us put some rendering to make it brighter 😀


TUTORIAL #1
Tutorial by Kindlier Princess

Start off with our base. If your base is too dark, first is make a backup copy of a darken base and duplicate it. Make the duplicate lighten than the original base.

After lightening it, drag the darker base at the top of everything, sharpen it and set it to “SOFT LIGHT” 100%.

    

Grab a texture by Carol and it’s up to you on how you erase some parts of this texture to make it beautiful. Then, go to Image > Adjustments > Hue and Saturation and check the Colorize

Duplicate this and go to Image > Adjustments > Desaturate. And set it to SOFTLIGHT 100%.

And mine is look like this.

    

Make a new layer fill it with # e6e6e6 and set it to MULTIPLY.

Again, Make a new layer, fill it with # 15243f and set it to EXCLUSION.

    

Duplicate the base [the lighten base] and bring it on top of everything. Then set it to OVERLAY.

And now, back to step #2. Duplicate the TEXTURE that you used a while ago. And bring it on top of everything and set it to COLOR BURN 70-75%.

Duplicate it again and set it to OVERLAY 100%.

    

Grab this texture by Carol and set it to SCREEN 100%.

Duplicate again the base [lighten base] and set it to SOFT LIGHT 100%.

    

Grab the texture by Silverqe and set it to SOFT LIGHT 100%.

Grab a purple gradient and set it to SOFTLIGHT 100% and blue gradient and set it to SOFT LIGHT 100%.

    

Then again, duplicate your base [lighter base] and bring it on top again, then set it to COLOR BURN 25%.

Duplicate the base again, and go to filter > blur > Gaussian Blur, set it to 1 or 2 [make it bluer] and set it to SOFT LIGHT 100%

    

Grab the black gradient and set it to SCREEN 80%.

Now, finishing touch! First, make a white border. A solid border. Just like the example at the left. And set it to SCREEN 100%.

Time for some TEXT! I type, “Storm Bringer”. And put a blend.

COLOR OVERLAY
# ffffff
STROKE
# ffffff size 3.

And set the opacity to 50%.

    

Duplicate the text and do this blending

GRADIENT OVERLAY
Color
Right: # 14ad92
Left: # bee8e1
Normal

And set the opacity to 40%.
