Quite a mess. :P
Now for the fun part...trimming the edges.
Select the Lasso tool, and under feathering set this at around 25-30. Circle around all areas on this layer in which the lines detract from the image, and cut.
If any areas are too dark, cut out pieces from those 2 brushed layers, but make sure you cut on both layers in the same place.
For example we want the lighting effect on the body, but not neccesarily in the main signature or in the eyes.
After the "clean-up" your sig should look something like this:
okay I have two problems to this lool one is my mario my render in this sig was red when i started with it, now it blue, now i want to know what lasso tool and how to use it is it the rope tool, i did that and from then on how do i cut, i went to edit then cut and nothing happened.
I'm not sure why your render changed colour. Sorry for not getting to this earlier. The lasso tool is the rope tool. Was the selection on the right layer? If you made a selection on a transparent layer with nothing on it and cut it wouldn't move anything.
Okay I am going to attempt to be very clear, well here it goes. I got the part of pasting the render 2-3 times, I also got the two renders to desaturate like you said. I even get to the part that it says to set the layer to dodge, and make a new transparent layer.
What I do not get is the select the abstract brush part, that says use one white brush and a black one. then your tutorial says to overlay it and duplicate. Where do I apply the brush? and also aren't all the layers transparent? other than the background ones. I ask this because perhaps that is why I cant cut it.
Also about the lasso cutting part I tried cutting and nothing happens, the only thing that happens is that my render turns blue.
I would not ask so many questions, but I have literally spent numerous hours by myself adjusting things and trying to figure it out on my own , and just cant seem to move on in your tutorial.
Thanks, Koopa hope u answer ahaha lol
