Today in KakuHidan class I am going to gloss over two very similar scenes from the manga, and use them as a basis for a character analysis.
I’ve gotten this question on my other blog before, so I’m just going to copy/paste the answer here since I use the same process on this blog as well:
So, at this point, I don’t exactly have a set method of filtering. It depends on the type of scene I’m working with, really. Sometimes I want a warmer looking photoset, other times I want to focus more on the blues and greens, and sometimes I’m just looking to bring out all the colors at once. I do a lot of this by experimenting with gradients and color filters (usually set to soft light, screen or pass through). Unless you have a specific photoset in mind, I don’t have a specific answer for you.
However, I can point you in the direction of some blogs to get yourself started =) (just click the PSD tag- some link you to other blogs as well)
You’ll probably have to adjust the brightness or vibrance, or get rid of some filters here and there on most pre-made psds but it’s a great way to orient yourself with everything you can do on photoshop. Eventually, you’ll find yourself creating and personalizing you own!
For me, it was this psd that first helped me figure out what worked and what didn’t.
EDIT: And omg! Good luck in all your future photoshop adventures! =D
