How to Create an Alien in Photoshop
This tutorial is brought to you by Robert’s Production.
Warning: This tutorial may cause you to get scared. I could remember that one commercial where you’re just watching it and all of a sudden, boom! The Exorcist comes out. Yeah, that might be like this video so I'm just warning you ahead of time so you don’t have a stroke. So here we go. Are you ready?
Hey guys, welcome to another tutorial from Robert’s Productions. Today I'm going to show you how to kind of create a cool looking alien effect in Photoshop. Now, I just started. I'm going to try to make either one or two tutorials per week for like scary effects such as, in this tutorial we’re just going to turn human to an alien. It’s not scary at all. We’re just going to make him green and you know, look like an alien.
Upcoming tutorial, we’re going to show you how to take all of this part down, you know make the eyeball bleed. It’s kind of a freaky, here I’ll show you. This is going to be our next tutorial. I'm going to show you how to make an ordinary picture into this with all the bleeding effects. So I'm going to just try to show you some crazy effects that you can do with Photoshop to really make someone look scary or zombieish.
Anyway so let’s get started, this tutorial might take a little longer than expected. So, the first thing I'm going to do to make him look more like an alien, we’re going to attempt to do this so I don’t know if it’s going to work. We’re going to go to Filter, Liquefy and what this is going to do is this is going to allow us to adjust his face sizes and all of that. The hard drive had to boot up for some reason there, took a little longer.
The first thing we’re going to do is we’re going to increase the brush size over here under Tool Options. I’d increase to probably that size. I'm going to come over here at the bloat tool and bloat out his head. Kind of looks like Wee-Man. And we’re going to come over here to the shrink tool or the pucker tool and really shrink his bottom chin. Now he has huge ears.
I'm also going to bring down the brush size and I'm going to shrink down his nose a little bit and I'm going to take the forward warp tool, bring down the size and bring him into a nice little smile. Just like that. You can also do a little more, have a little more fun with it, you know make his eyes a little bit more out there and that’s all we need to do, that was pretty fast, wasn’t it? Let’s crop pointing out his chin, there we go. And click Okay, boom!
Okay now, we’re going to transform his face to be green actually and then if this is through, maybe this tutorial wasn’t going to take as long as I thought. Just go to Image, Adjustments, Hue and Saturation and bring the hue to around 50, look at it, just as easy. And click Okay, we got our alien. That was really easy. So you can do this to family and friends. Can’t really do much with my grandma, she already looks like that. She already looks like this so—well, you know my grandma, all you have to do is take a picture of her and print it out. You don’t need to put it through Photoshop, it’s got its own little unique effect to it, you know? I mean, her face is so distorted and you know you just don’t need to bring in a Photoshop, it’s already off, you know just take a picture and put it in your next Halloween catalog and it will be perfect. It would be the magazine of the year.
Anyway, this tutorial lasted like what? One minute, two minutes? That was kind of boring. I wanted it to be longer. God! Maybe we should do another one. No, you should try it. Hope this tutorial help. If you’re on YouTube, please rate, comment and subscribe. Remember to request those tutorials. Once again I'm going to try to bring in tutorials every week, one or two tutorials per week, maybe three, you never know. And I think the next tutorial I'm going to work on is this. I'm going to have to practice it out a little bit. Thank you for watching and until next time, take care.
