This coloring is best for colorful, cartoon/anime images. So, let's start!

○ Open up your base:



○ Duplicate your base twice, set the first duplicate to screen 70% and second go to filter > other > high pass with radius 20,5 pixels. Set that layer to soft light.



○ Curves layer:

RGB:
1st point: output 123, input 81
2nd point: output 185, input 163

Blue:
output 168 input 104



○ Selective color layer:

REDS:
-74
+7
+63
-28

YELLOWS:
-81
+4
-53
0

CYANS:
+100
+100
+100
+34

BLACKS:

+5



○ Gradient:

#d25d23 > #f89a2b, layer opacity 26% (adjust to your liking ofc)





○ Then I made a new layer, took a fluffy brush size 200px, color white, and made a couple dots, then set that layer to soft light and opacity 25%.



○ Then ctrl+shift+alt+E, then filter > sharpen. :) and there you go!
