Step 32 – Flags

The original image of the flags is this one.
Like before using the lasso tool and then applying the layer mask to hide the rest, leave only the flags like this: To make then fit the image press ctrl+t to modify the size and the position of the flags

Step 33 – Old

Tear the flags, using the layer mask make the brush really small and hide some parts of the flag
Repeat the process with the other one and apply a motion blur on this last flag. Go to filter blur Motion blur angle 38 and distance 20pixels.

Step 34 – Flags Lighting

Select the flags and in a new layer apply a gradient in each flag, remember each flag has to be in a different layer
Change the layer to soft light, and for the first flag the one that is closer use 70 of opacity and 60 of fill. And for the other30% of opacity

Step 35 – Brown

In a new layer paint over the model and columns to give a brown tone to them
Now change layer mode to soft light

Step 36 Shadow

In a new layer paint with a soft round black brush over the model to create shadows near the column. Use the layer in soft light mode. All the area of the right of the model

Step 37 – More shadows

You can create a new layer and this time paint with a bigger brush with less opacity (30%) all over the model to make the blending. Remember use the layer in soft light mode, and reduce the opacity of the layer if you think is necessary.

Step 38 – Details

In a new layer pick a soft round brush with a yellow tone and paint where the light reflects. Also you can add some more shadows with black. Remember to paint soft and reduce the opacity to 50%

Step 39 – Adjustment Layer

Go to the option layer then adjustment layer and then choose color lookup, pick the option fall colors and reduce the opacity of the layer to 40%

    As the model in the stock being used, and having seen several versions other artists have created using this tutorial, it would be honestly very nice if artists trying to recreate the styling and theme would see if they can do the same thing using alternative stock – of which there are thousands available. The point of tutorials is to make suggestions and provide tips to artists looking to improve their techniques or learn new ones, not to make identical and in some cases poor reproductions of the work used in the tutorial. Change it up people!! :)

    This is really cool. I really like the idea; erasing a flag to make it look worn out.

    This makes me wonder if you can do it to clothes too. I never even think about making fabric look worn out, I just find worn out stocks which is hard to come by.
