About This Class

On this class you will learn to Design a Glitchy Portrait Poster Art, using only Photoshop. I was inspired from some newspaper art I saw on pinterest so I thought about trying something similar.

I will show you where you can get resources and then we will start working on Photoshop.

You will learn to apply newspaper pictures in highlights of the picture and then glitch it.

It will be a fun project with a lot of trippy colors so I hope you enjoy it.

1. Intro: Hello, everyone. My name is Clarence and on the short class you will learn how to create this kind of posture. I always love to experiment with new techniques, so it's part from some newspaper art. I thought about trying to create a similar style using photo shop. You can use these techniques to create other artworks that you may use for your projects. It is a short class where you will learn about some basic things in for a shop, like removing the background, selecting specific colors, creating a brush and some shortcuts to improve your workflow. It is a from project that will teach you to do something creative and unique, so make sure to enroll and see the whole class. 2. Resources + Inspiration: Hey guys, I've already created something just so I can have it as a reference while I create up the artwork. So, on this first video, I will just show you some resources on the inspiration for this kind of artwork. So, as always, the inspiration is from Pinteresque. I was just searching for some newspaper art and ah, mainly I got the inspiration from these kind off pictures. I don't know if they are, like, handmade or computer generated, but, uh, I really like them. So I thought I would do something similar to these Onda, For the resource is, as always, I use, um back so sore. Ah, our unspool ash. You can just type like portrayed the on back cells or on splash on out suggested toe. Look for something with ah high contrast because you want tohave all three like highlights shadows and meet tones like because you want to select old three areas like highlight meet tones and shadows. This was ah, good picture for for that purpose. That's why I downloaded that. So you can have that in mind when you download your picture Now? I don't know why I couldn't find it. The same pictures. I could chill you, but if you don't find something that you think would do the work, you can just send me une male r d m Seiken, send Elissa this picture. Also, I did something before with these techniques, but I think this one looks much better with these kind off glitchy repeating three D shapes on. Also, the next thing that you need to find his newspaper images, you can go on Google and search newspaper pages free and then go to tools, go to the size and search for large and you can find some pictures. But also, I was looking on Google like free old newspapers online than the while I was looking through the use A I found this resource on went to the Library of Congress. So that's the website on it has this archives off newspapers, for example, 100 years ago, the day and, uh, just click on it. And, uh, it has 12 pages. Andi weaken, downloaded as a pdf. So I just downloaded. Seems that this is only the first page, but you can just go back and, uh, change the page I downloaded by going on. Pdf you can download like just three or four images, Max, because that's what that's all that you will need. So, yeah, that's it for the resources and for the inspiration. Now we'll go on photo shop to start working on. 3. Remove the Background: Okay, so now we are in for a shop, and I've opened the picture at downloaded from pixels and ah, I'll just copy listens to create a new document for the shop file. New and usually the size that I use are for thousands on five thousands. Resolution 72 because I'm not going toe print. This is just like a weapon resolution color, Mulder, Giambi and quick rate on. I'll just based this case another position, the picture. I'll just make a copy of this, and, uh, I need to remove the background, so I goto because the background is white. In this case, I will just go to select on color range and click the white color. But first, I would just do some adjustments with the levels. In case you don't have ah, white background, you can just use the A fan tool. So click on a point and click another. Another point you can hold to create curves on DA. Keep going like that. If you get this kind of curves you can undo and ah, click on this point by holding old key, she can start again on DA. This is I will go to the to the end. Yeah. I'll just make something faster you can understand on you can. Quick, right. Click makes election Okay on command control C command control V. But, ah, I'll use another technique to don't toe remove the background. So I have two copies of the pictures. I'm going to image adjustments. Ah, levels. I want to create some contrast between the background on the picture. Say OK on da now, From this picture, I will go to select color range and select the white color. Make sure you're on the sampled colors and ah, just there on the fuzziness. Okay, Andi, After the selection is done, I will uncheck the layer above and ah, make sure I make the changes on the layer below on. Just go to erase tool hardness 100% then changed the size based generally on your image, and they'll just delete the the edges First. I could quit, just delete, but I see that there are some selections on the face toe. Done. I didn't want to delete them. So that's why I'm doing it manually with the erase tool. Okay, so outside the ground, I'm going to invert the color just so I can see. Ah, yeah. Okay, so I'm going to fix this here on DA for the hair part. I can just create the new leer on Duh Doc said, like the black color. And just add it manually with a brush tool. I'll just go to layer. Great clipping, Master. It applies on there, Here, on da Yeah, just like and select the black collars because anyway, it will be covered with some kind of glitchy effects. But just I can have that in a black color. Okay, so now I'm going toe divide the The highlights meet tones and shadows, so see in the next video. 4. Color Selection: Okay, so I'm inviting this. Can the ground by clicking command control I on da now. I will just make a copy of this so I'm breaking the layer below Hold shift like a layer. Ah, above on da I could make a copy by holding old key on Going to merge layers and thank these and ah, I'm thinking toe Ah, change the levels that bit so I can add some contrast Que onda Um Now make sure you click on the layer that you have and ah, go to select color range And now we'll just goto highlights Click OK and ah, click Command Control C command control Be. But make sure you are clicking on the layer where you want toe Uh, copy the highlights from because you don't want to copy the background and I'll just arranges by clicking command control T So I have the highlights year on. Don't do the same thing for the meet tones and shadows. So Gate command Control C Command control V on No quick again on the lier go to select color range. Now I'm selecting the shadows. Okay, Come on. Control C Command control V on that you're going to see I'll, uh, rename this. So shadow this one is it tones. And, uh, this one highlights. Okay, so how can I can uncheck the layer below on DA Yeah. Now will kind of firm apply the newspaper images within oldies. Ah, layers and ah, change the colors. For example, on the shadow, I'll make the are newspapers darker and, uh and so 5. Apply Newspapers: case and now just open some newspaper images. As I said earlier, if you can find ah, newspaper images are any portrayed. The images sent me a d m or an email and the house and the one that I that I'm using. So I'm just copying this on Goto our main ah document. And ah, First I think I'll just do the highlight. So I'll paste this Onda common control t to kind of reposition it. And, uh, make sure you position the layer above the highlights and goto layer great clipping mask. And, uh, you can do some arrangements like make a copy of it and you just do some different and goes up for the newspaper case Now I will used the I will apply the newspapers on the other layers. I can use the same a newspaper image solid. Just based it again. And now I will make sure it is above the meat own. So I go toe, they're great clipping mask. Um, now I need to make this darker, so I will goto image adjustments Consideration on dykan Just decrease the lightness. Thanks. So on da Yeah. Just so you're going to see the changes. And, uh, if they can do some arrangements like I did with highlights, so just making some copies of it. Basically, you may need just one newspaper image because no one will see that you used the same one. So I will use the same one again for the shadow. So based it on DA began layer. Great clipping mask. And now I'm not going to play around with the, uh I like the use situation. I will do the invert. So good inverter command control, I and ah, you get this kind off image. Um, yeah, I'll do against some arrangements. Okay, So before I go to the next step, I'll just delete this white parts. Okay, So now that we applied the the newspapers, the next step is to meet to make this ah, kind of glee trees. So you see in the next video 6. Glitchy Effect: case and now I'm just going toe Select these layers and merge them on. Then apply the bleach effects. So I'll just uncheck the background and, uh, selected told Goto added, Copy merged, and I'll just face it above command Control V. Onda. Rearrange it. And yeah, gate. Now what? We'll uncheck the layers below. Okay, so now let's great. Ah, new layer and to do the Grinch effect, so I'll just go to brush on goto mixer Brush tool on DA. Make sure you select dry. Have a load. Um, who had 0% load 100 floor 100 under quick sample all layers on Let's ah, clean brush on. Make sure you select. Ah, I'm using like a square brush, but it's your choice. But I would suggest something like a square because it gives that kind off idea that it is glitch. I don't know. It looks better, in my opinion, So we will start with Mitt tones and basically what I'm going to do is kind of manipulate this kind off. I had just right here when the when it when it combinations with a black one soul, I was just do it so you can see And ah, first you need to hold old key and, ah, click on a on a part of the Mitt tones image saw when I select that it copies it got this right. Two years old, it converts into a brush. And if you click, you will get things kind of thing. Say you can do it like that on Basically now I will just select in different areas by holding old key. So you see, it changed on just do this kind of thing. So I'll speed this off so you don't have to see the same thing going on over and over. Okay, so there are also some, like small edges, and ah, you can just decrease the size of the brush and keep doing the same thing. Okay, so now I think I finished with them. It don't. So I will just create a new layer and keep doing the same thing with the shadows and then with the highlights. So again, I'll just use the mixer brush tool and Greece, size on just told hold key to create brushing that on Duh. During the same thing case another. I applied the like VT effects. I'll just do some final adjustments toe Finalize this posture to see in the next video 7. Finalize Poster: is the first thing I will just delete some some brushes on this part right here, because, uh, I need to see more the the eyes. So I'll just create a layer mask. Ganda is the brush tool. You just delete a little bit. Maybe also hearing lips on the mid tones. So again, layer mask. I'm using the layer mask instead off brushed toe the instead of erase tool in case I changed my mind because I can return the same layer by just adding a white brush on the layer mask. So yes, and I will just apply some adjustments, like brightness and contrast, because I see that there is no big difference between the mittens and shadows. Maybe I can't no make the metal sprite. Er, make sure your quick a great clipping mask or hold all to come on Control and G. Yeah. Okay. Now I think I will just apply some, like a background and some typography, like I did this image on. Duh, by the way. Ah, I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial till now. So I would appreciate a good review if you're really like the tutorial. Also, make sure your share your projects. So now we'll just, uh, fly like like, a great color. I can click command control, you toe player on the the lightness on. Yeah. No, uh, just said some typography and, uh, like a Grady encircle. I want to keep the background simple because the main focus was sunda, like on the newspaper glitchy art. So I'll just type like information like I did on the example. I showed you first. So to do the text added, you just go to type two and click on the cycle right here. And you can change size I'm using for Tora Farm. I will use this one. I'll just, uh, call previous again, again and, uh, place it in the middle and just start decrease the size. And now I will just make some copies of it. So command control seat Andi began to to go on the next row and just based it until you feel the whole space. Okay, so now I'm going to select this old and ah, I'm going toe change this right year so I can change the space between the rows, so yeah, okay. And I'm going to delete some layers, Some text so I'll just used the arrow key. Okay? And just create a new earlier goto elliptical market tool. And you can hold shift. You can create us regular circle on DA values. The Grady in tool. I'm going to use that this radiant. Yeah. Okay. Molding shifts, Aiken. Great. Like a straight line. Okay, on that will just reposition it. Maybe I can do something like a divide off the background, So I'm holding a making a copy of the background. I can double click command control. Why? Toe door? Invert the color. Maybe it looks better like that. I don't know if you can try to you, but I feel like the details won't look that good. So and maybe just, uh, small. Not a lot off contrasts between the great like gray and dark gray? I don't know. No, Aiken, just do some final adjustments. Toe. Finalize the poster. Yes, I can make a copy of this circle. This is just for the compositions. There's just some small details on now. Again, Just brightness and contrast on. Yeah, I'm not sure if I should play around with color balance. That may be just some small changes. Yes, I think that's it for this tutorial. I hope you enjoy it and you can try it with different pictures.
