Through this 40 minute video tutorial, I’ll take you from a normal photograph, to a fantastic blazing result. Not only are we adding fire, but also keeping part of the original detail in the hair, for a truly unique look! Video is explained in enough detail, that even fairly new people to Photoshop (as long as they know the very basics) should be able to follow it, if they just concentrate a bit.
You also get the same PSD file that I worked on in the tutorial, so you can see exactly what goes on, follow along, or make it yourself! (note: download file is watermarked on the body, and slightly lower resolution)
The following topics are covered:
- Masking our the hair.
- Quick Selection Tool and Mask Edge Tool.
- Colour Correction.
- Adding fire.
- Channel Selection.
- Warp Tool.
- Liquify Tool.
- Puppet Warp Tool.
- And more!
…and that’s the end of the preview!
