Step 11

Then use the brush with black and mask off to delimit the texture only closest to the edge, then set the layer mode to multiply and reduce the opacity to 80%

Step 17

Set the layer to multiply and once again use the clone tool to fill up the rest as shown here.

Step 18

And as we have done adjust the color balance and use the mask to eliminate most of it.

Step 19

And finally grab all these three layers and merge them into one. And the resulting layer set it back to multiply.

ScreenFlow 243

Step 20

OK so now what we need to do is detail all the painting and mostly the edge to merge with all the textures and bring out some detail that is a bit hidden by the textures themselves. So just sample color as we have done and paint in the detail.

Step 21

Make sure you give some thickness to the skin as it doesn't look cutout.

And also adding some darker detail that goes into the rotting skin also helps blend everything.

Step 1

Lets start by adding a color balance layer clipped to the painting layer and adjust it as shown.

Step 2

Mask off this ;layer from where the bones are to keep them off this color influence.

Step 3

Now at this section here we need to paint in some hair to cover what we painted over the original hair. So grab the brush tool again and reduce the size to just one pixel, with transfer and pen pressure enabled on the brush palette. And start painting in a new layer.

Of course there are different shades on the hair so be sure to mimic the original sampling for highlights medium and darker tones.

Step 6

Be also sure to follow how the hair falls yet also you can paint in some out of place hair. as shown.

Step 7

On the top we should also add some hairs out of place as shown here.

Step 8

OK great now lets make a duplicate of the base layer, and hide the other one just in case. Then access the color range tool sample the background and adjust it as shown

ScreenFlow 273

Step 9

The resulting selection wont be perfect, so grab the lasso tool and fix it so there is only the background in the selection.

Step 10

Then inverse the selection and create a mask.

ScreenFlow 279

Step 11

Lets create in the background a layer and fill it with blue so we can see what we are doing. Then select your brush tool and with a small enough brush lets edit the mask to get rid of the noise left behind by the color range tool.

  1. I cannot download the brush, anyway anyone could tell me how to set it, so it fades on both sides...
    Also the other brush.
    Preferebly with sreemshots....
    Thank you.

  2. Nice tutorial but I feel that after step 17 it looks overdone. Also the zombied area of face could be more dark and reddish that would look more natural. By the way extremely well written tutorial.

  3. I'm really liking the tutorials here! But did you really have to use a stock photo of frogs humping each other?

  4. This is amazing! Premium quality tutorial here but the videos should be sped up. You're not kidding when you say it's 10 hours!
