Another photo manipulation tutorial today. As usual we’ll be using Adobe Photoshop to create our image. In this tutorial, I’ll be creating an artistic paint splatter effect on the picture of a beautiful young lady.
This photo manipulation is easy to make and it doesn’t take a lot of your time.
I’d strongly recommend that you try this tutorial if you are not an old horse in the designing field, simply because you will learn a lot of techniques for creating manipulations, such as adding elements, setting tones, creative stroke making and a few other techniques.
Making the Ground
First of all I cut the dancer from the background with the Marque tool.
I chose the solid Black color for the Background.
Place the model on the background.
I took a parrot from free stock and removed it’s background.
I selected the Erase Tool and erased the wood stand.
Here’s the trick. I placed the parrot on the upper arm of the dancer because it’s the best place in the picture for the parrot to be.
I used the stock of paint tossing for making the effect of the paint splatter on the parrot.
I placed the paint tossing behind the parrot and selected the following color from that area on which you want to merge the paint in the body. I picked this color from the chest of the parrot, but what about the excessive part of the paint which is disturbing the scene? The answer lies in the next image.
I took a new layer but it’s not just any layer, I took a new layer by striking the CTRL+SHIFT+N. Because this layer is going to be the color layer on the every paint color tossing.
I selected the Eraser Tool and set this settings. We used the same settings in the making of this manipulation and select the Paint Tossing Layer not the Paint Tossing Color Layer and Erase the excessive part of the paint tossing with these following settings.
I used another paint tossing for the parrot and repeated the same thing.
Now I took another paint tossing for the dancer’s neck side. This time I took a new color layer and filled the following color on the layer and then erase the excessive part of the paint tossing.
I took another paint tossing for the leg of the dancer and again took a new color layer and filled the following color on the layer. I then erased the excessive part of the paint tossing.
I took another Paint tossing for the leg of the dancer because I had to make a paint dripping effect from the leg and then repeat the same steps.
Now I made her beautiful dress in the splatter paint effect, for this used another paint tossing which suites on the dress of the dancer, selected the color, then again took a new color, filled the following color on the layer and then erased the excessive part of the paint tossing.
I came on the right side of the dress, took a new tossing for the dress, selected it, then again took a new color layer, filled the following color on the layer and then erased the excessive part of the paint tossing.
I added another colorful parrot in the scene in order to make it more interesting and colorful. Adjust the Brightness/Contrast by going to the Image>Adjustment>Brightness/Contrast.
I have placed the parrot her wrist. Looks beautiful, doesn’t it?
I took another paint tossing for the parrot tail, transformed it and performed the same steps which I did above.
I added the glow in the bottom of the dancer with the help of the Brush Tool and adjust the color to pure white and take a new layer and make a brush stroke.
After making the stroke I’ve transformed it.
Here I take a paint bucket from the stock and removed it’s background.
I then selected that area which is painted already, because if we use that area for filling the color it looks more realistic and I used three colors on the bucket. You can see the result for more explanation.
Then I made a little bit shadow for the bucket.
Then I used the Burn Tool on the bottom of the bucket. Now it’s ready for going into the scene.
Here I placed the bucket and transformed it.
