Human Skin/camouflage


Recommended Posts

Im drawing a picture of my budy, in honor of him. Im trying to create camouflage and then the human skin, so far ive drawn everything by hand with the pencil tool. Although so far the picture looks differently than i expected when i started i am quite pleased, the only thing is that the edges are really quite rough and just dont flow together, ill post what i have done so far, does any one have suggestions on how to the the edges flow better, i mean when there are two colors next to each other to make them look better together.

Thanks!

did you use solid colors or gradiants?

If you used solid colors try to set the tolerance down very low and hold shift and clik most prominent color cut and paste to new layer to separate them out. then do your gassiaun at a fairly low setting and use the transparency plug in to work the colors back to each other . repeat for each color.

you might find you should possibly when you cut each color out find you should paste it twice into two separate layers and then do the above method at two different gassiaun settings and transparencies.

remember keep one layer of the original on the bottom so you can clik the wand to the outside and control i to maintain the blur from going outside your original margins.

Hmm... I recently tried out making a random camo pattern. I like the results, so maybe they'll work for you? (I haven't tried it on anything besides text yet, but I see no reason for it not to work.)

Make whatever you want 'camouflaged' on a new layer. Then add noise (add lots of noise if you want it 'extra' white). Apply the Oil Painting effect :OilPainting:. Lastly, use Median on it.

Here's a ScriptLab script for it. The top one was made by running the script, untouched, on about four layers, setting them all to Multiply, then merging them all into one. The bottom was made by removing the extra five(?) Add Noises and using the script once on a single layer. ... Hope it helps. :)

for more than two color gradiants I generally use gradiant mapping

you could try that and the layers is a must when working with multi colored gradiants. you get used to using the layers and you will never go back to the old method. takes a bit to get used to switching back and forth but the layer system is a reall bonus.
