Tutorial: Bright Selected Coloring



Tutorial by request. Done in Photoshop CS, but I'm told it translates to PSP as well.


01.


Cropped base from caps by dj43.


02.


Duplicate base twice, set to Screen 100%.


03.


New layer filled with dark blue (I used #011435) set to Exclusion 100%.


04.


Duplicate the base and drag it up to the top; set to Screen 100%.


05.


New layer filled with light blue (I used #C9DBEB) set to Color Burn 100%.


06.


Erase the blue parts off of faces and skin.


07.


Duplicate the blue burn layer.


08.


New layer filled with pink (I used #B46894 pulled from her dress), set to Color Burn 100%.


09.


Erase the parts off everything but her dress.


10.


Duplicate the pink burn layer and lower the opacity to 50%.


11.


Create a new layer and stamp a copy of everything you've done so far in the new layer by pressing CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+E. Duplicate that layer and set the top one to Soft Light.

If the icon needs it, sharpen at this step, on the soft light layer. Fade sharpen as needed.
