Join Rayce Bird for an in-depth discussion in this video Finalize with color correction and noise, part of Photoshop: Create a Goblin Using Textures and Compositing.
- [Voiceover] To complete our goblin,…we need to take a step back and review…the overall feel and vibe of the image…and make changes accordingly.…Let's start off by merging all of these…layers together in one flat image.…I like to do that by hitting control alt shift and e…and it's just going to flatten everything,…make it on one layer.…It's a little easier to kind of manage when we do that.…And one thing I like to do before I get…into color correction and adding noise…is to do a quick dodge and burn.…
So, I'll choose dodge tool.…Mid tone selected and I'm just really lightly…going to dance over the eyes a little bit,…the cheekbones and maybe the mouth area…because our focal point, if we kind of squint our eyes…we can see the forehead over anything…and I want to bring a little bit more attention…to maybe some of these features underneath.…We could also maybe hit the neck a little bit…just to give it a little bit more of a secondary flow…so when you focus on the face…and we kind of drop down to the neck.…
I think the neck is kind of an interesting area.…
Creature creator Rayce Bird, the winner of Face Off, teaches how to take an existing image of a goblin sculpture and apply textures to help bring the goblin to life. Members will learn how to use blending sliders and the Transform, Warp, and Liquify tools in Photoshop to make the textures believable.
