Make an alien out of a real girl or woman in photoshop
Tutorials Photo Manipulation 14213 Views August 19th, 2010

Today I want to show you a simple way to transform a real girl into an alien. I will work with Color Balance, Liquify, Scale, Brush Tool...i hope you are familiar with that.


Part 2

Go to Filter - Blur - Gaussian Blur and make the folowing settings:

Step 4 - Modify the Hair and Skin

With the Liquify.Forward warp tool I have changed the shape of the hair. With the laso tool I took a little skin from the forehead and place it on the hair to look like a part of the hair is missing..i used Blur, Smudge, Burn Tool and opacity of the layer 76 % to look real. Now merge the 2 layers ..alien and the part of the skin.

You should now have a photo like that.

Create a new layer and cover the skin with Brush tool color #e6f809.except the eyes; go to filter - blur - gaussian blur and than change the blending mode to Color, opacity 55%.

Create another layer.. lets make little circles on the skin with green Brush Tool .

Something like this:

Now I burned a little the photo of the alien ; parts of the skin, the eyes and the hair.

Go to Blending options of this photo and do the following settings:

Step 5 - Create The Background Paper

Now, make a group(name it Alien) with all the layers and resize it to 60 can ajust the size as you wish.

Make a new layer and call it Paper and put it behind the Alien Group .draw a square with color #bfcaa2.

Choose the following colors :

Foreground: d0d4a2 Background: 79814b

Go to Filter > Render > Clouds.

Now in the same Layer go Filter > Noise > Add Noise. and set the following settings:
