VarsityPupptet added an extra part to Juniors tutorial.
If you're looking for that extra spice, read on!
Alright, here's Varsity's official addition to Juniormodder's already awesome portrait tutorial.
Well, to illustrate what I'm trying to do, I'm going to backtrack a few steps. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out where I left off.
What we're doing here is creating an overlay.
I don't know how to explain what it does really... other than it accentuates textures and lines.
Click on the spoilers to see the steps. The screenshots are rather big, so I used the 'hidden' tags.
VP step 1
First, copy the layer of the cut out character (in this case, the Handmaiden)
You'll see in the layer bar that there are two layers with the Handmaiden.
VP Step 2
You'll want to select the top-most layer (or the duplicate you just created, just make sure it's above the original layer) and then click the dropbox
. Once there, scroll down until you find the overlay option.
VP step 3
Once you've done this, you'll notice that the Handmaiden has suddenly gotten a little brighter and kinda funky. That's okay. Just go up to Colors > Desaturate and choose Lightness and click [Okay] or whatever the button says, and that issue shall be fixed.
You've just created your first Overlay layer! Congratulations!
VP step 4
If you're greedy, you can certainly make more. Instead of going through the same painstaking process, you could just select the Overlay layer and duplicate that. It'll save you couple of steps.
You can also change the opacity
of the layer if 2 is too many, but 1 isn't enough.
End product... based on my personal tastes
