Tutorials #3 & #4: Izzie

micia85 asked for a tutorial for some of the Grey's Anatomy icons in my last icon post.

Unfortunately, I hardly ever save the psd files and I don't use the exact same settings on each icon, so it's not easy for me to remember exactly how I got each finished icon. But I've tried to recreate two of them. I know they're not the same as the originals, but hopefully they're close enough that the tutorials will still be helpful!

Using Photoshop 7 (I don't think it's translatable because of selective colors, sorry)

to: based on this:


I usually don't crop or resize the screencap until I'm done getting the coloring how I want it. But you can go ahead an crop/resize it however you want.



Duplicate base and set to screen.



Add a new layer and fill it with #FFE869, set it to soft light.



Add a selective color adjustment layer with these settings:

Reds:
Cyan -85
Magenta +15
Yellow +44
Black 0

Yellows:
Cyan +14
Magenta -15
Yellow -65
Black -3

Whites:
Cyan +24
Magenta +8
Yellow -23
Black 0

Neutrals:
Cyan +19
Magenta -9
Yellow -25
Black 0



Add a color balance adjustment layer with these settings:

Midtones: +26, +26, +23
Shadows: +22, +13, +7
Highlights: +6, +10, +17



Add a levels adjustment layer with these settings:

RGB: 44, 1.00, 251



Now add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer with these settings:

Reds: Saturation +15
Yellows: Hue -6, Saturation -20
Cyans: Hue -2, Saturation +12



You can stop here if you want. But if you're a freak like me...

Merge all layers into one layer and set it to invisible.

Add another selective color adjustment layer with these settings:

Reds:
Cyan +96

Blacks:
Black +70



Merge layers again and then move the first merge layer on top of the new one and make it visible again.

Now, with a soft edged eraser, carefully erase anything from the top layer that looks too red/fuzzy to you. I decided that the inside of her mouth and her nostrils had too much red and her eyelashes were too light. So I erased them from the top layer so that the bottom layer showed through. Then I used the burn tool to go over those areas on the bottom layer to make them even darker, until I had it how I wanted it.



But that's just me. If it looks good to you, leave it as it is.
