Ok so a coloring tutorial, like my sidebar image, for deafluvium
How to get this result:
I mostly use gradients and some textures. So first I used a psd this one.
But you can use any basic psd with some contrast/brighten.
Then I use a red gradient I make, how to make a gradient of your chosing:
chose the color you want:
Then we’re going to make a gradient:
click ok, now It’s all red, I don’t want it to be red.
First we’re going to set the gradient to multiply:
Create a new layer for the gradient so you can erase the red coloring you don’t want on the photo:
Now you can use the eraser, I erase everything but Cat’s hair and the background.
Now I add a greenish gradient for her clothes, you see what color would fit your image,
Now add a layer to the gradient, just like the previous one, and erase everything but Cat’s clothes:
Now add a black and white gradient, set it to screen and I erase everything but her hair and her mouth:
We’re almost done, now I’m going to use a texture to bring every gradient up:
you put the texture under the gradients and psd:
I used this texture:
And you’re done
You can use this tuto for other photos, I used the same way for another pic to edit, here is the result:
