Learn how to use additional textures for details using blending modes and sliders.
- [Voiceover] Nothing screams zombie like a little…dripping blood and foggy cataracts.…Let's use some of bloody textures…and add a little life to this zombie…or lack thereof.…So we've got our background in there…and, like I said in the last video,…we will do some more adjustments to that later on,…but let's focus on bringing in some of these…nice blood textures that we had.…I'm going to make sure autoselect is still on.…I'm gonna actually drag the blood a little bit closer…to our image…now that we've adjusted the overall dimensions.…
And with this one, what I want to do,…this is all on just one image so I want to come in…and copy certain areas of this…and what we're looking for is to first kind of place this…in and around the wounds a little bit…and we want it to be pretty nasty,…but choosing the right blood spatter can matter too.…So something like this is a very strong shot…and a lot of times it might not work…for something like this.…If it was being blown out, if we were doing some kind…of a dynamic action then this might work,…
Creature creator Rayce Bird, the winner of Face Off, shows how to take a normal portrait and turn it into a hideously frightening zombie with Photoshop. He starts at the very beginning: finding the right image to zombify. He then shifts to "preparing the canvas," where he makes some initial adjustments to get the image going in the right scary direction. From there, it's all about the details, including teeth, veins, bone, blood, color correction, and the proper lighting. In the end, members will have a perfectly horrific zombie version of themselves.
