Trucos de diseño para diseñar como locos
After a week busy creating demo materials and covers I will take some of these to make a small tutorial on one of the trick I’ve done.
So far I have not come too close to tutorials because I am one of those who think that experimentation is the best teacher you can find. Following this idea the tutorial that I propose below is intended to awaken your imagination rather than to show a step by step technique. For this reason I will not be very specific with values and opacity settings. And i will encourage you to experience your own photomontages and filters to achieve the goal that you want.
The aim of this photomanipulation is to achieve an environment similar to that offered in films like “Wings of Desire” or “So far, so close”, but with a modern aesthetic. As with all manipulations, a fundamental part of it, is to choose a suitable material to perform. In this case I used a picture that already contributed to the environment I wanted to achieve. The second part of the assembly is an available resource in deviantart.
As you can see filters are masked within a group which, in turn, has a mask applied so that only affect the area needed. Above the group is a layer in color mode. Next steps: Smudge stick, accented edges, plastic wrap and glowing edges, respectively.
And then the finished image.
