Add a scar to a girl face
Tutorials Photo Effects 30465 Views June 15th, 2010

Hello! Today i want to create a burn scar to a beautiful woman/girl????????s face.


Hello! Today i want to create a burn scar to a beautiful woman/girl's face. For this tutorial you need to go to this site and download this young woman photo.

Name this layer Before Layer. Scale the image because is too big.... Duplicate the layer and call it Red Skin Layer. Duplicate again the layer and call it Scar Layer.

Lets work with Red Skin Layer. Go to Image - Adjustments - Color Balance and make the following settings: Shadow:50;0;-20 Midtones:100;0;0 Highlights:0;0;0

Lets work with Scar Layer. Make a selection like in the picture above scar Go to Image - Adjustments - Color Balance and make the following settings: Shadow:10;0;0 Midtones:41;0;-14 Highlights:0;0;0

Now take the Spot Healing Brush Tool and make the selection blend in with the rest of the skin. (brush 8 ; mode: normal) Burn the selected area (brush:13; range:midtones;exposure:9%) to look like little burn flash areas. Make another selection and delete that selection. scar1 Right click on the layer name and choose Blending Options and do the following settings scar4

For this tutorial you need to go to this site and download this young woman photo.

Go to Image - Adjustments - Color Balance and make the following settings: Shadow:4;-11;-11 Midtones:27;-16;-16 Highlights:0;0;0

Go to Red Skin Layer and burn the scar area...not all the scar...burn parts to give some texture. Return to Scar Layer and choose the Sponge Tool (brush:43; mode:saturate; flow 8%) and cover parts of the skin closer to the scar area. I didn't like the scar area so i took the Eraser Tool and delete a little the scar shape making it wider. The result is this: burn-scar

I think that the scar stroke is too dark so return to the belending options of the layer Scar and put another color. Noe i came up with another idea if you find it better use it;go to Red Skin layer and with Eraser Tool brush:4 ; opacity 23% make some rounded lines ...
