With the recent release of the last and perhaps the best of the vampire romance – Twilight Saga’s Breaking Dawn 2; the vampire craze is back in trend. There was the time of Dracula when vampires were considered filthy and scary but all thanks to Stephanie Meyer and the Cullen clan for the changed view among folks. Now that vampires are considered sexy and endearing, I decided to show you how you can morph your own picture into a vampire with the help of Photoshop. You can call it the Breaking Dawn effect but the blood savaged look in red eyes and the fangs ready to bite has suddenly began looking exciting! So here goes our tutorial.
Open up the image you want to morph into a vampire and duplicate the original layer. Since you will be making fangs, make sure the picture is one in which teeth is visible.
Make an outline with help of Pen Tool, to remove extra white space in image and make a selection . As shown in image below.
Delete that selected extra white space from image and you will get image similar to below. Duplicate this layer for safety reasons.
Select one of the eyes, either by using the Marquee tool or the Polygonal Lasso, and press Ctrl+Shift+J to copy the selection to a new layer. Get the same done with the other eye and you will get something like this:
Apply a Gradient overlay effect to one of the eye layers. Following is the setting that I used but you may try a different configuration too. I used the red color for the eye because Edward’s eye totally looked mesmerizing in the shade.
Copy and paste the same upshot to the other eye layer. No matter what settings you used, you should wind up with something parallel to this.
Now go the first layer copy (the one you created in the first step) and select a small area on the incisors tooth like the one you see on the below image. Press Ctrl+T and adapt it to make it fit the original tooth.
Repeat the same for the other incisors tooth. You may have to use the Blur tool to make it look even more genuine.
Next select the Sponge tool, make sure the mode is set to “Desaturate” and spread all over the subject’s face, avoiding eyes and mouth. Use the proper flow percentage so that you get a pale skin, but not a black and white photograph.
To end with take hold of the Burn tool, select the “Shadows” range and paint over eyes and mouth.
I have placed this image in background to give more realistic.
Here your vampire is ready!
