Me and my big... (Starring Caitlyn work Reshaped)

Hi gals today there is nothing new but since I've accomplished something over another something that Caitlyn did for me I wanted to share that with everyone!

So I know I'm not a big expert on Photoshop whatsoever but, I won't turn down over stuff I don't comprehend just like that... So I searched and searched and searched a bit more and finally I found the solution (sort of)

To understand it better:

Caitlyn's Masks

Logo work for alectra


So okay now you will understand it better I guess "giggle"

Well I do have made my own improvements and finally got this:

Cool right? Well I'm still working around the colours adding because its seems everytime you add the "shiney" part you'll get a cropped line over the bright parts and if you try to make it work with a black colour around the stockings well... It will get stuck due to taking all the brightness away.

Now here it comes my favourite part:

How did you do it?

Well I got from Caitlyn the PDS file... I don't have Photoshop and yet Paint Shop Pro managed to open it... So after several hours of trial and error (I prefer to call it mess and play) I managed to convert a "workable" file into a PSP file.

Yay! Finally I Can actually work with it...

Now here it comes the part when stuff gets hard (for me of course!) Apparently if you play with the brightness and the colour of a real photo it will be enough to create the shiny part.

ERROR 404 not found "giggle"

That will work on special ocassions and only if the photo has latex (lets say you have a latex clothing on it )

To explain it better: DO you notice the parts where the catsuit is bright and has some white lines (WET effect) all over it?

that said if will work with that but, In a drawing it will not...

See it there was a foolhardy attempt at it playing with the lightning and choosing other colours and retouching the sides a bit and finally quitting the background (It won't be used)

So what to do again?

Easy enough the net has a wide variety of blogs, pages, exercises and such for Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro

For anyone that uses Photoshop on a regular basis it must sounds stupid but I've to say this was a great achievement for me!

First you gotta learn how to create what you want (In this case a latex texture)

Now go over the net and search for an image which has a latex background in half the image or the entire image!

Got it right? 

Then select that image in Photoshop or Paint shop pro and then select Save as: a BMP archive

And then you want to know how to apply it!

All said you are ready to go and make it.... hey wait! there is more don't go so fast!

Lets return to the first picture

See the white lines all over it?

To create that effect you must use the lasso over the preferred area and once you got it select right click on it. Now you will see a dotted line over the area.

Then we will click on Effects>Texture Effects>Texture 

And you will select from the place you had it saved your texture (following the previous explanations) then an window will pop up with the next balances:

Below the selected texture you will see an option for selecting size: 44% was chosen for this one

Now we have more options:

Image> Smoothness - Depth - Ambience - Bright

Light> Colour (select a colour for the texture) White shall be your selected one if you want to achieve the one from the above.

Angle: 90º

Intensity - Elevation

So got them right? Now get accostumed to them playing around with the stats...

To achieve the one from above otherwise you have to make sure the following options are done like this:

Smoothness (100)

Depth (88)

Ambience (23)

Bright (31)

Intensity (56)

Elevation (20)

That for all the selected parts with the lasso...

To get the general colour from above  play with another values on brightness only

Hopes that helped anyone who wanted to get a latex feel to an object or a drawing! ^-^

This weekend I'll make sure to keep playing around with the new logo and then try to post something new!

And once again... 


P.S: And thanks everyone for the greats comments on my 100th post ^-^. Really touched me deep inside you are all the best!
