Tutorials Photo Manipulation 18925 Views September 14th, 2010

Hello, In this tutorial I want to show you a photo manipulation with the theme "Industrial Nightmare" - Apocalyptic Image! I will use 5 different photos that will need color adjustments to blend perfect one with another. This tutorial can be seen as a blending and photo manipulation exercise.

Advertisment

Step 1 – Find the Stock Images

Open a new document with the size 700 / 900. Now I will show you the images used in this tutorial:

First I need this photo of a woman from profile with an open mouth.

Another photo is the man with the gas mask

The main background photo is the industrial city landscape.

For extra smoke effect I will use several photos :

Smoke 1

Smoke 2

Step 2 – Work with the First Image - the Girl

I will try and hopefully succeed to give a more dramatic look to the girl photo. So copy the girl photo into your psd file. There is no need to resize it. Go to Edit – Transform – Flip Horizontal and place it on the left side of the image. Call this layer Girl Layer

I will need only the face of the girl so with the Pen Tool start to draw the shape of the face. Change the opacity of this vector layer to 50 % to draw exactly the shape of the face. Call this layer Girl Shape Layer.

You will obtain something like this:

Step 3 – Remove the Girl Background

I will now use the girl shape to remove the background. Press CTRL and click the thumbnail of the Girl Shape Layer . Now return to Girl Layer and select the Magic Wand Tool. Right click on the selection and choose Select Inverse like in the image below. Press Delete and the background is removed.

You will obtain something like this:

Step 4 – Remove Skin Imperfections

This is a really beautiful profile but I will have to delete with the Eraser Tool the parts of the face that were not cropped well. So I will use in this part many of the tools that are used in the retouching process: Spoat Healing Brush Tool , Clone Stamp Tool , Dodge Tool , Smudge Tool , Blur Tool and Eraser Tool.

Blur Tool

Dodge Tool

Eraser Tool

There is no need to worry we will adjust the face later if it is not good enough.

Step 5 – Beautiful Skin Tone

Press CTRL and click the Girl Shape Layer. Create a new layer and call it White Effect. Set the blending mode of this layer to Soft Light 50%. With the Brush Tool paint the selection. Be careful to avoid the eyes, hair, eyebrows and mouth area.

Go to Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur

Now return to Girl Layer and with the Dodge Tool lighten the skin.

Step 6 – Replace Face Features

Now I want to replace the face features; add another skin color, add eyes, mouth color, etc.

For this step I will use mainly the Pen Tool. Go to Layer – New – Group and create a new group called Face Features. In this group I will put all the layers created in this step.

As you can see the face features are not very visible. I want to obtain a nice doll porcelain look. So take the Pen Tool and create the following shapes:

draw a blue rectangle, color #819eab and place it in the eye area like in the image below; change the opacity of this layer to 65%; go to the Blending Options of this layer and add “Inner Shadow” , color for the shadow # 314255.

draw another rectangle this time smaller , color # 100a04; change the opacity of this layer to 65%; go to the Blending Options of this layer and add “Outer Glow” , color for the glow # f9f9f6.
