Make skin look perfect in one-click with these AI-powered Photoshop actions.
OK once we have refined and detailed our painting, lets bring in this other image to add some nasty rotting effect on the skin. Open it up, bring it on a new layer, then scale and rotate as shown here.
Make a duplicate of this layer and scale it down as shown here
Now we will do as with the texture of flesh, so grab the clone tool and this time cover the skin next to the flesh as shown here. Yet only for the hand and mouth. Then set the layer mode to multiply.
Then lets adjust the color balance directly as shown here and create a mask for the layer.
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%
Then lets readjust the color balance a bit more to get this result.
Now make another duplicate and scale it down; then use the clone tool again to cover the rest of the face as shown.
Set the layer mode to multiply and adjust the color balance as indicated here.
Then of course make a mask for the layer and mask of as shown here.
Lets grab the original piece of skin and warp it a little as shown here.
Set the layer to multiply and once again use the clone tool to fill up the rest as shown here.
And as we have done adjust the color balance and use the mask to eliminate most of it.
And finally grab all these three layers and merge them into one. And the resulting layer set it back to multiply.
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.
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.
Yet very important be sure you work with the texture following the features it provides as shown here. And that is it, we concluded yet another section in our tutorial.
7. Hair and background.
Lets start by adding a color balance layer clipped to the painting layer and adjust it as shown.
