Hot ColorFul Photo Manipulation
In this tutorial i will show you how to create a Hot ColorFul Photo Manipulation. We start of by using a picture of a model and will create a unique colorful effect. This tutorial can end up in all kind of different results, depending on your imagination. You dont need a lot of photoshop skills to end up with something like this but i assume you know the basics.
Start with opening a new photoshop file. I used a small working area of 700 x 600 pixels.
Create a new layer “CTRL + SHIFT + N”, fill it with black (or any other color) using the Paint Bucket Tool “G” and set a Radial Gradient Overlay as shown below.
You will now have something like shown below:
Now open the picture you would like to edit. I used a model i found on deviantart.
Now cut out the model. If you dont know how this works you can folow the How To Cut Out An Image tutorial i have written urlier. I ended up with this:
Now we have the basics to work with. We will create some smoke behind the model, so we need to create a new layer behind the model and download some smoke brushes. You can download some nice brushes here.
You will end up with something like this:
Now place an texture on top of the smoke layers. You can download a lot of nice textures here to fit your needs. After placing the texture, set the layer style to Lighten as shown below.

Now select the model layer, and press “Alt + Shift + Ctrl + B” or go to Image -> Adjustments -> Black & White…
A new window will open, just use the default settings and press OK.
Now duplicate the model layer.
And Press Ctrl+I.
Now ad an Outer Glow using the settings below.
Drag the duplicated layer below the Black & White model layer.
Ofcourse you also could simple ad a outer glow to the black and white model layer, but i like it this way because if i need to edit some on the black & white layer i have a clean layer to work with. (actually i used some soft brushes at the end of this tutorial to make the body cutout look more smooth.)
Now we need to add some glowing lines around the girl. I used the Pen Tool “P” (on an tablet pc) to create some smooth lines.
For some extra information about how to create a nice line, take a look at (step 5) of the Light Effect Basics tutorial.
I created 2 lines and added a Outer Glow to it. Then remove the parts that go behind the girl using the Eraser Tool “E”.
All we need to do now is give this some more color.
I added some new layers and used a big soft Brush to add some colors using the Brush Tool “B”. Use a brush between the 200 to 300 pixels.
I created a new layer for every color dot, so i could move them around if i am not happy with the position of the colors. I used the colors Blue, Green, Red, Yellow and Purple. Set the color layers mode to Overlay and set the Opacity to 40%.
Thank you for folowing this tutorial. I ended up with this:
