Alright kiddies. Once again it's another installment of the Banneresque series of coloring tutorials! Yay! Yes, I can just sense your enthusiasm.
Anyways, I shall quit with my banter and go on with the tutoring!

Step Uno: Grab your base
For this lovely tutorial, I am using a picture of the even lovlier Gaspard Ulliel, who was seriously born to play Edward and some people just can't see that, but ANYWAYS.

Seriously. This man is smokin.

Step Two: Minor Tweeks (OPTIONAL)
When I was creating this graphic, as I kept doing my coloring layers, I noticed some slight pixelated so I blured a couple of areas.
Blurred Areas:


Step Three: TEXTurize ME
Take this lovely texture:

and set that to SCREEN giving you the result of

Step Four: CURVEy
Now, we're going to add some coloring. WHOOT! So, go to LAYER >> New Adjustment Layer>> Curves and input these settings:

click for larger picture
to give you the result of

Step Five: Colourrr
Go to Layer>>New Adjustment Layer>>Selective Color and input these lovely settings:

to give you the result of

Step Six: Yellerrr
Make a new layer (Layer>>New Layer), fill it with the color: D3C205 and set it to Soft Light @ 100% Opacity, which yes, makes a slightly ugly yellow hue to everything but really, it looks better in the end.

Step Seven: Mas Color
Create a new selective color adjustment layer, and input these settings:

which gives the resultsss of

Step Eight:Mooore Color
New selective color adjustment layer, again, i'm starting to sense a pattern..., with these settings

which gives these results

Step Nine: Layered
Duplicate your base, way down at the bottom, drag it on up your layers pallete, and set that to Soft Light @ 40% Opacity. So far:

Step Ten: Curvalicioso
Layer>> New Adjustment Layer>> Curves, with these settings:

to give the result of

Step Eleven: Bloody Red
New Selective color, with the settings of

to give

Seriously, have I bored you yet? Take this time to go get a coke or something...

*Hums elevator music*


Step Twelve: Curavliciosaaaa
New Curve layer, with the settings of:

to give

Step Thirteen: Orraanggee
New color layer, fill it with FDEEE0 and set it to Darken @ 100%, to give you

Step Fourteen: Violeta
New color layer, fill it with FFF0F5, and set it to ColorBlurn @ 100%, to give you

Step Fifteen: Mas
Once again, new curve layer, with these settings:

to give the result of

Step Sixteen: Balancenco
Layer >> New Adjustment Layer >> Color Balance, with these settings

to give this

Step Seventeen: Radical duddeeee
NOW! Here's the fun part. Create a new layer. Hit cntrl+alt+shift+e on your keyboard. This merges everything that you've done onto that one layer. Now go to Filter >> Blur >> Radial Blur and look at this:

What you have to do is drag the center a little off to the right, because Edward, i'm sorry Gaspard, is off to the right a bit. It doesn't quite have to be exact, just..near him.
When I did this, I got this:

Now all you have to do is take a fairly large soft edged eraser, and just click once in the center, where he is. Once yuo've done the erasing, set the layer to Soft Light @40% Opacity

Step Eighteen: Texxtturization Meh
Remember that texture from step three? Yes. Duplicate it, drag it to the top, and hit it to Screen.

to give

I don't know why I did it twice. It seems stupid, now that I think about it.

Step Nineteen: Seein' Double
Create a new layer. Hit cntrl+alt+shift+e. Resize it, cntrl+t, make it smaller and move it off to the left side of his head. Using a large soft edged eraser, set it to soft light.

To get..this. It's quite lovely.

Step Twenty: Bow chicka wah wah
Now. Duplicate that last layer. And then, we're going to blur it again. I honestly don't have any pictures to this describe it, and to only say, move the blur center off to the left side. Yeah. Once you have the blur, just erase some that'll spread, and set the blur layer to soft light, and lower the opacity a bit.

And then, you're done! Just add some text, border, whatever!

It's soo purrrty!!
