Hey guys! I haven't used photoshop in awhile and have become a little rusty. How would I go about achieving the same kind of effect as this wallpaper? The scan lines, color gradient, and the 3Dish effect.
Thankyou in advance!
Scanlines are done by using a rectangle shaped how you want with a Vertical/Horrizontal line fill, then use Multiply/Screen to remove the unwanted colours and then fade the image slightly. The colour can be acheived by selecting multiple layers of the same image. One in grey-scale, the other with the levels changed to promote the desired colour. then use multiply/screen to remove the unneeded aspects and to make it blend well
The 3D effect is from is done by using a Gaussian blur. Duplicate your final image layer, Gaussian blur the top one, then use the eraser tool with a soft edge to erase the centre and it should give you a similar effect as tot he one in the picture you've provided.
Okay here are my result(s)
How'd I do?
Pretty sweet. But try the scalines going horizontally like Liam is being watched via a camera
(I really wanna watch this film too! It's supposed to be awesome!
Thanks! Unknown is a really great film, you have to watch it.
I agree, I should have used the horizontal scanlines.
But I wanted the scanlines to contour his face like on the tron wallpaper. I think I'd have to manually contour/curve the scanlines with the liquify tool so they match the curvature of the face.
The thing that really frustrates me is getting the colors to match the tron wallpaper. I know that it doesn't have to be exact but I really want it look the same.
I also think that I should have started off with an image that wasn't already colored.(but that's besides the point)
That looks awesome. It gives off a kinda non-existent feel to him. Great job!
