On with the fun!

Today we'll be making this:


Looks hot, right?! I totally think so. So, I think we shall start!

Step One: Obtain your picture

This isn't quite the original, but I sharpened it a couple of times. Since I did sharpen it, it got a little bit pixelated around her, so just take a small sized blur brush and just blur around her. BUT DONT BLUR HER! Of course.

Step Two: Return of the Textures
Add this texture:

and set it to screen, which'll give you this

Step Three: Textures:Ressurection
add this texture:

and set that to screen, as well, which'll give you this


Step Four: Random
Okay, so this is going to seem a bit random, but, what I did was randomly brush this brush all over the canvas, and then erase the part where it covered her.
Le Brush:

My random brushings:


After I did my brushings, I put that layer on Screen @ 25% Opacity, which gave me this:

I promise you it makes a difference, later. :D

Step Five: Colour my world!
Now, we shall add some color. Because it looks dull. So, IN PHOTOSHOP, Go LAYER >> New Adjustment Layer>> Selective Color, and use these settings:

REDS:
Cyan: -100
Magenta: +64
Yellow: +100
Black: +100

YELLOWS:
Cyan: -100
Magenta:+100
Yellow: +100
Black: +100

BLUES:
Cyan: +100
Magenta: 0
Yellow: +100
Black: +100

WHITES:
Cyan: 0
Magenta: +28
Yellow: +48
Black: 0

and hit okay. See the difference. It's like, WHOA! She really has red hair. It's amazing.
My Results:


Step Six: Colour
New Layer, Flood Fill with #FFECDA and set that to Soft Light @ 55% Opacity. Yes, it does wash it out.
Le Result:


Step Seven: Never Fear!
It wont be washed out for long ,because we're doing another selective color layer! WOOT!
Use these settings:

REDS:
Cyan: -100
Magenta: 0
Yellow: +17
Black: 0

Yellows:
Bump EVERYTHING up to +100

BLACKS:
Cyan: +100
Magenta: 0
Yellow: -22
Black: 0

ZOMG! It makes more color!
My Result:



Step Eight: Blue like a smurf
Create a new layer, flood fill with #DAF7FF and set to COLOR BURN.
My Result:



Step Nine: Revenge of the Selectives
Once again, another selective colour layer. I think, *think*, though, that this is the last one. We still have curves and hue/saturations ones. WOOT!
Le SettingsL

REDS:
Cyan: -100
Magenta: 0
Yellow: 0
Black: -1

and fin. More color. Can you tell I kinda want her hair to stand out?
Le Result:



Step Ten: We're Close..I Promise
Take this texture and set it to Soft Light, and erase the parts that are on the girl. She doesn't quite look right multi colored.
Le Texture:

Le Result:


Isn't that just a PUNCH! of colour?

Step Eleven: I like quickies
Create new Hue/Saturation layer
(Layer >> New Adjustment Layer>> Hue/Saturation)
Bump the saturation up to 1=+12
See?:

That was quick

Step Twelve:
New Curves Layer (New Adjustment Layer >> Curves )
Change the little drop down menu to blue, and click randomly, and in the bottom there are two boxes input:
Input: 52
Output: 82
That gives it just a slight yellow twinge. See?


Step Thirteen:
New Color Balance Layer (New Adjustment Layer >> Color Balance)
Use these settings:

Results:



Step FOURTEEN: EVERYONE PAY ATTENTION
This can be confusing. Follow me step by step exactly!
- Create a new layer
- make sure new layer is selected on layers pallete
- on your keyboard hit CNTRL + ALT + SHIFT + E ALL AT ONCE
Using an eraser, erase everything except the girl. You don't exactly have to be to precise, but when you get to the areas around her hair, use a soft edge so the hair will blend a bit better.
Once you have everything erased, move the girl to the left, in that blank area. Set that layer to SOFT LIGHT.
Result:



and your done! The rest is up to you. I just added some text and thats it. Promise.
