#26 - Ziyi Zhang Tutorial.  
Going from:
to

Translatable and pretty simple.



Begin with your base!



Duplicate your base and set the layer to SCREEN (my opacity for this particular icon is 80%):



Create a new layer filled with #fcede0 and set the layer to MULTIPLY 100%:

>

Go to Layers>New Adjustment Layer>COLOR BALANCE, enter in:
MIDTONES: 32, -40, 14
SHADOWS: -35, 11, 33
NO HIGHLIGHTS



Create new layer filled with #67b5ec and set the layer to SOFTLIGHT 100%:

>

Create a new layer filled with #e0fce3 and set the layer to COLOR BURN 100%:

>

Create a new layer filled with #3d7973 and set the layer to OVERLAY 100%:

>

Duplicate your base layer, drag it all the way to the top, and set the layer to SOFTLIGHT 100%:



Go to Layers>New Adjustment Layer>HUE/SATURATION/LIGHTNESS, enter 35 in the master saturation slot:



Go to Layers>New Adjustment Layer>COLOR BALANCE, enter in:
MIDTONES: -27, -17, 13
SHADOWS: 13, -5, -15
NO HIGHLIGHTS



And it's done! Yay! As you might have noticed, it turns out pretty red on certain icons, so perhaps the yellower the picture is, the better.

You can ask me questions, leave me comments, show me results, friend me, make me feel loved...

how do you create the 'new layer' Sorry I've only just stated making today ^^;
Kelseyhelloimkelsey on October 16th, 2007 05:31 am (UTC)
I just got home, but if you have Photoshop, then go to Layer>New Fill Layer... and then put in the color and set the blending mode and opacity to whatever...

If you have Paint Shop Pro, then go to Layers>New Raster Layer, change the blend mode and using the FLOOD FILL TOOL fill the layer with whatever color.

If you have another program, then I don't know because I only have PSP and PS, but I hope it helped.

And I really don't mind because when I had just started and was reading tutorials, I didn't know how to make a new layer either!

I just have Photoshop CS :)

lol, yes it's hard to get the hang of that's for sure! This is simple and I can't work it out XD I'll just keep trying I guess. Thanks for your help by the way :)

Awesome tut, used it about a billion times. ^^

Ziyi Zhang sounds kinda weird ... her name is actually said Zhang Ziyi, in the traditional way. XD
Kelseyhelloimkelsey on December 27th, 2007 08:12 am (UTC)
I'm glad you like it! And Zhang Ziyi does sound better, but I do live in America, so I figure I better use the US way, lol.

^^ Okay.
