Hi, everybody seems to be so excited and very much addicted towards photo manipulation, since years designers have created a whole lot of amazing, eye popping, jaw dropping, all the exaggerated terms can be used here. Photo manipulation is such a beautiful art, out of nothing or i can say out of something a most splendid manipulation can be brought out. In this tut i will show you how to create a simple creepy face manipulation. Ok lets move on to the tutorial.
STEP-1 Open any image as you like with a straight looking face, here i have used this image below.
STEP-2 Now press CTRL+J two times to duplicate the layer twice. Now switch off the eye icon of the bottom layer, to hide the layer.
STEP-3 Now select the top layer, press CRTL+SHIFT+U to desaturate the image.
STEP-4 Once you have desaturated the image, go to filter menu, Blur> Gaussian Blur and set the radius amount to 5.5. Then set this layer’s blending mode to overlay. This is how the image will look.
STEP-5 Now we have to duplicate this layer, to do this press CTRL+J to duplicate. Once you have duplicated this layer, go to image>adjustments>photo filter, once you have selected this option, a window will appear, in that select the sepia option and set the density value to 100.
STEP-6 Now create a new layer on the top, pick the gradient tool from the tool bar, or just press G for shortcut, now click on the gradient editor tab on the top and give the following gradient color values and drag it from top to bottom and set the layer’s blending mode to color.
STEP-7 Now we have to make the eyes little more creepier, to do that, select the first layer, using the polygonal lasso tool, press L for short cut, just select the black eye lids, CTRL+C and CTRL+V to copy paste the selected layer, after doing that,place this layer at the top of all layers. This is how the image will look.
STEP-8 Press CTRL+D to deselect it. Once you have done that, go to filter menu>Blur>Gaussian Blur and set the radius to 2 pixels.
STEP-9 Now got to image>adjustments>brightness/contrast option and set the values to -29 and 25.
STEP-10 The last step, we are going to give the eyes some shine, to do that select the sharpen tool from the tool bar, with a soft brush, and strength of 50 radius and rub upon the eyes until you get a shiny sharp eyes.
This is the final output of the image.
