I suggest you play around with this settings to get different results when adding your gradient layer because it will act directly on how dark or bright the image is.
Create a new Gradient Map layer (Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Gradient Map) on top of the head layer and click on the Gradient to go to the Gradient editor menu.
I selected a cold color palette I thought would go nicely with the theme (Black for the shadows #000000, Dark Blue for the midtones #04225e and a bright green for the highlights #62e121).I suggest you experiment using very contrasting colors to get a trippy feeling on the illustration.As we go along with detailing the illustration,we are going to use different variations in tone of this same colors.
We need to clip mask the Gradient Map layer to the Tiger head so the effect is only visible on that layer and to do that we are going to click between the two layer thumbs while holding Alt to clip mask them:
This is how the tiger head should look like with the gradient map clip masked:
We are now going to star painting all the details on the tiger's face to make it pop.But first we need to go through some color and brush setting before we start. I'll be using a Digital tablet for this part of the tutorial because of the pressure sensitivity settings,but you can very well imitate them by using the Pen tool and stroking the paths using the "Simulate pressure" option (it will take more time but the final result will be similar to the one using a tablet). Create a new layer and select the brush tool with a basic round shape %100 hardness and about 4 pixels wide.Under the Brush presets menu, check the option "Shape Dynamics" and make sure to have the control set to "Pen Pressure".(This settings are also needed if you are using the Pen tool instead of a tablet).
As we go painting the details,try changing the size of the brush to get different results. For the colors we will be using,You can enter a quick eyedropper mode if you hold Alt while on the Brush tool and click on any color on you canvas to sample it.Sample 4 different hues of the main colors (2 greens and 2 blues) we originally had to start filling up the parts of hair we erased while we were extracting the image.
Half the files are not available anymore and one you have to purchase. If the tutorial is out of date, then remove it. Frustrating!
