All right! Welcome back and here we are to rap up this tutorial on the Twilight movie poster/desktop background. Here we go.
Next thing that I want to show is actually how to get his eyes to glow. Now, we are going to want a technique that I particularly like. It is very similar to what you are doing photography and the way you do that is we will select the upper most layer and I am going to get rid of this for right now because I thought I was going to use, but I do not think I am for right now.
So, I am going to create a new layer and we are going to come over here and we want to go the percentage words as HSB and we are going to type in 50 right there and then we are going zero out this other one, okay. You will see that this turns onto solid gray and we are going to hit okay.
So then, we are going to fill that. We are going to hit alt +delete and that is going too filled out with a nice middle gray and then I am going to come over here to overlay, okay. Now you will see that, with that overlay, it does not do anything. Well, it is actually a hitting layer that has a really neat functionality. So what we are going to do is come over to this navigation bar over to your toolbox and under your toolbar here, we have a couple different tools and we want to find the one that says your dodge tool. Okay, so dodge tool. So what is that going to do is going to actually lighten anything that is underneath and I have to set to 91 and then I also have this right here, set 2 to the airbrush. I am going to actually turn that airbrush off. Let us go for the mid tones.
I am going to go for the shadows because right now I obviously have some really dark areas in here. So I am going to paint this first, okay. And it is very hard to tell here, but if I zoom in not that close, you can actually see that it is actually starting to lighten up his eyes a little bit under there. So, I am going to continue doing that. You can obviously use your white paint brush too on that butt. That does not always work as well so I am going to continue using my dodge tool here. I am just going to go over his eyes as much as I can and also I am going to go for the mid tones and I am going lighten those up just a little bit. And if you want try highlights, you can try that too and those little orange specs will show up just a little bit more as well.
And let us see. I am going to change this really quickly too just to see if we can see any other effects sort of happen on here. Okay, so on soft light, you can see that actually you can see by changing this blending mode here, you can see the effects of what I have done with that lighten effect. Obviously, I do not want to make him look like a complete demon in the image. So, I am going to go scroll through here just really quickly to see exactly which one looks the best.
And I am going to leave on soft light because it gives me enough of the color out of his eyes. Now, I am going to go in and create one more layer and we are going to pick a yellow kind of like orange yellow color similar to the one that was in that movie poster. It is sort of like a nice bright orange yellow color. Maybe a little slight more yellow just like that and this is 418296, if you want to type that into your color finder there and we will zoom in just a little bit. And this new layer, I want to use my brackets to make this a little bit smaller like that and obviously that is going to look really fake. So once again, you can use your different blending modes to kind of scroll through and find the one that might look that best. So you can use something like for instance, the color dodge, one look to pretty good.
Let us go ahead use lighter color. That one seems to work pretty well. So once again, I am going to sort of bring my brush size down just a little bit and I am going to paint that right into his eyes and then I am going to also just kind of neat that down just a little bit. Use that lighter color you see there. I am just going to kind of sort of bring that down.
Now, if you put this above that layer, it is going to like not even furth
