Photoshop Tutorial: Create a Glowing Cyberpunk Portrait with Light Streaks

Step 28

Add a Levels adjustment layer to remove all of the hard edges remained.

Step 29

Make a new layer and place it below the the hair light group. Take a soft brush with the colors #d379cc and #e8c9cc and use the same method as done in the step 23 to make a light spot and tweak it using Ctrl+T.

Step 30

Move it to the hair area and change the layer mode to Screen 100%. Duplicate this layer twice and move them along the hair following the flow of the hair. 

Step 31

Create a new layer and use the colors #749ce1 and #d263a7 to spot around the model. Change this layer mode to Soft Light 100% to give this area more color. Use a layer mask to reduce the effect to make it more subtle.

Step 32

Make a new layer, use a soft brush with the color #c3a7be to paint on the lower of the hair. Alter this layer mode to Hard Light 100%.
On another layer , use a soft brush with the color #f5e9ee  to paint on the flowers below the model. Change this layer mode to Overlay 100%.

Step 33

Open the flowers 3 image and take the flower you like (I’ve chosen a purple one) to add above the model’s cheek. Use the Liquify Tool to tweak it a bit as shown below (don’t overdo it to keep its natural shape). Add a mask to this layer and remove the big twisted petals .

Step 34

Add this flower again from the original image to the model.’s head and eye. Use the Liquify Tool to tweak it into different forms. Use layer masks to reduce their visibility to match the softness of this area.

Step 35

Create a group for these flower layers and use a Curves adjustment layer to decrease the contrast of the flowers. Paint on the flower on the eye as it’s soft enough.

Step 36

Make a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to desaturate the flowers. 

Step 37

Open the light images pack. Use the image 4 to add to the model’s face. and change this layer mode to Screen 100%.  Add a mask to this layer to erase the light part covered the model’s face.

Step 38

Duplicate this layer twice and tweak them using the Liquify Tool.  Place them below the model and use a layer mask to erase most of these parts, leave the highlight inside visible on the flowers 2. 

Step 39

Duplicate this layer several times to add more light and decoration to the hair, especially make the one look like horns and add them to the top of the forehead.

Step 40

Create a Levels adjustment layer for the one on top of the head to remove its unwanted edges.

Step 41

Continue tweaking the light into the shapes below and change the mode to Screen 100%. Duplicate it several times to add around the model. Add a mask to each of these layers to decrease their visibility. 

Step 42

Continue tweaking the light into a shape below. Resize it to be much smaller and duplicate it many times. Arrange them around the model to make them look like tiny drops to decorate the model..

Step 43

Create a new layer on top of the layers and use a soft brush with the color #f8e3f7 to paint on the horns area to brighten it a bit. Alter this layer mode to Soft Light 100%.
