So, I won first place in Challenge 121 back in November and never actually got around to creating a tutorial for it since I ended up being busy with rl. So thanks to pensnest for letting me post this late :)
We're going from to
This tutorial was made with Photoshop CS5 and uses Curves, Hue/Saturation, Gradient Map, Brightness/Contrast and Flood Fill layers.
I will close entries and post the voting on Sunday 20th November. Please consider that Saturday 19th, midnight your time, is the deadline for entries (though you can get away with later as long as your comment is here when I get to my computer on Sunday).
The next challenge will be up next Saturday morning. Meanwhile, a reminder that I'm hoping some of you will post images—animé and screencaps particularly welcome—that could be used in future challenges Post here if you have anything that might be suitable.
I was invited to do a tutorial for either or both of the texture sets I made for Challenge 120 and since I couldn't decide which texture set to make a tutorial for so I made one for both. In order not to spam this community, I'm only posting the tutorial for the first texture I made to this community. The other one can be found here at love_sacrificed.
