  3. Hip Hop Style Photos List of needs: Duotone Light by Kris VDM > Here Tupac Hand Font (otpional) > Here Outline Object by Pyrochild > Here Step 1 Firstly, because this lies in photo and image touch-ups, you'll need to take a picture of yourself. Choose a pose or position of yourself that looks most hip-hop like or even copy a famous artist's picture. I used a Lil Wayne Picture. And got this: Just about any pose will do. Here's what your finished image will look like: Step 2 Once you have your image, open it, and go to adjustments: Black And White (ctrl+shift+g) Really easy step, no need for a screenshot. Step 3 Here's your ink style of the photo. Simple as is this whole process. Run Effects > Artistic > Ink Sketch Set your settings to: Ink Outline: 50 Coloring: 75 You should get something like this: Step 3 Adding in color. Here's where you'll actually be putting one color in the picture. Simple as it is, just run Adjustments > Duotone Light Leave your first color as black if you want a result like mine. Set your second color as whatever color you want. I chose a maize or yellow color, but with less saturation, but you can do whatever color you want as long as it's on your spectrum. Here's what I got: Step 4 Adding in the text is a relatively easy part. I chose to use TuPac's most famous track's title, Changes. Gotta give credits to him for his writing style. Just type whatever you need. Add a layer and type your name or something without anti-alias. Step 5 Go to effects > object > Oultine Object. Set your color as black, leave the width at 2, and set your softness at 253. You'll get something like this: Step 6 Adding in the lights is a fun process. Here's where you get fancy schmancy. Add a layer and select the paintbrush tool. Set your width between 15 and 20. You can variate if you want. I will just to show you the outcome. Click the paintbrush tool to make dots around and on the text. As long as you added a new layer, your text will be safe. Set your color as the basis of your color you used in step 3. Because I used a yellow with a bit less saturation, I'll use just plain yellow. Here's my result: Step 7 Now you'll be blurring the lights. Go to effects > blurs > gaussian blur. Set your gaussian blur between 20 and 25. Result: Final Step (8) Duplicate the layer from step 7 and flatten your image. There you go! Show your results!

  8. Hello! I am Old Valiken, an animator, and I've been using PDN for about 4 or 5 months now. It's easier and smaller than Photoshop so yeah, and I've got lots of pics to show you! Most of the things I created were for forums like userbars, avatars, and signatures. Well here's my progress that I wouldn't have obtained without your tutorials! Thank you PDN members! To view more of them please visit my site. Lots of tutorials paid off especially the fire tutorial. Thanks guys! It's all because of you!
