A Basic Hip Hop Style Photo in 8 EASY Steps

Recommended Posts

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:

th_5.png

Final Step (8)

Duplicate the layer from step 7 and flatten your image.

There you go!

....

second links broke BECAUSE you loaded onto photobucket

Completely wrong of course.

The links broke because Old Valiken moved or deleted the images - just like the notice from Photobucket said.

@Old Valiken: Tutorials need screenshots. Please fix the links to your images.
