Hi there my loyal readers. Have you ever get mad at anyone? Have you got disappointed coz he’s handsome than you are? Well learn this tutorial and turn him to stone for the rest of his entire life:) Just Kidding. I prepare another tutorial for you guys. In this tutorial you will learn how to create a stone cursed man in Photoshop. Here is the final result of our tutorial that we will going to work on.
So to start our tutorial, We need to get a nice image and this this guy below is just perfect. You can download this stock photo HERE
Now after you download this image open this to photoshop. Name the layer of this guy to “Handsome“. Duplicate the “Handsome” layer by right click on the layer and choose Duplicate Layer or CTRL+J for shortcut command. Desaturate the Duplicate Layer. Go to Image>Adjustments>Desaturate. Name this duplicate layer to “HandsomeCopy” and close the “Handsome” layer for a while coz we will gonna use it later on.
On the “HandsomeCopy” Layer, Remove the background and the eyes using Polygonal Lasso Tool (L). Once your done the image will look like this.
This time we need a texture. We will use this Concrete texture below and you can download this in GrungeTextures. After downloading the texture open it to photoshop. Name the layer to “Texture“. Rotate it to 90° CCW. Go to Edit>Transfrom>Rotate 90° CCW.
This time hold CTRL+CLICK on the “HandsomeCopy” layer so that it will be in selection mode. Click the “Texture” Layer and inverse the selection. Go to Select> Inverse. Now press DELETE on your keyboard.
Now Set the “Texture” layer to Multiply. The image will now look like this.
Working on the eye. On the “Textures” layer, Select an area using Polygonal Lasso Tool (L). Try to select below the eye and once your done selecting press CTRL+J to duplicate the selected area. Same Process on the Right eye. Name the left duplicate to “Left Eye” and “Right Eye” for the right side.
Now move the “Left Eye” and the “Right Eye” layer below the “HandsomeCopy” Layer by click on the duplicate layer and dragging it below on the layers palette. Heres the position of the Layers.
Place the “Left Eye” and “Right Eye” Layer to the proper position Using Move Tool (V). See this image below.
To adjust the Lightness of the Right Eye and Left Eye Layer, go to Image>Adjustments> Hue/Saturation then adjust the Lightness to -30 so it will be a bit darker.
Choose Burn Tool (O). Set the range to Highlights and Exposure to 30%. Start Using burn tool on the sides of the eye.
Now click on the “HandsomeCopy” layer on the layers palette and lets adjust the levels of our image a little lighter. Go to Image> Adjustments>Levels. Use this setting below.
Heres our image now after we burn the sides of the eyes and adjusting the image level.
Working on the hair. We will use Curves to match it with the skin and to make it more lighter. Select the “HandsomeCopy” layer, Choose Polygonal Lasso Tool (L) and select the hair.
Go to Image>Adjustments>Curves. Use the setting below.
Now our image will look like this after we adjust the hair
Now to finish, Choose Burn Too (O) and try to apply some darker area on the nose and the eye a little. Open the “Handsome” layer to bring back the background. Now we’re done!!!!
