Guide To Dark Manipulations by Kechake Guide To Dark Manipulations by Kechake
Oh hai, say hello to my newest photomanipulation tutorial. :D

I worked on it for 4 days and I'm really pleased with the result. There are still so many things that I'd like to teach, but they have to wait until next tutorial. :giggle:

How do you get it: hit the Download button and you get the .zip file. Unzip it. You will get 6 images full of tips. Enjoy. :D

What is it: a guide to those who want to be... er, popular. With manips. <.<;

It's called cliché.
But absolutely everyone likes it. Mudkip. :iconimhappyplz:

:paranoid:

What it includes:

*explaining the meaning of a dark/gothic photomanipulation
*choosing the right background
*blending different backgrounds and skies
*gothic/dark elements in manips
*choosing the right model
*how to cut out stuff (pen tool)
*creating new dresses
*blending different model stocks
*lightning and shadows
*colors, gothic/dark effects
*symbols
*using gradients
*smart file saving

If you follow it, it would be nice if you linked back to this tutorial :aww: Although it's not a must

Moonlight Sonata

stocks that were shown:

Backgrounds:

#resurgere [the moon and the mountains (not used)] + ~archaeopteryx-stocks [rocks] + ~ChristasVengel-stock [sea] +

Models:

*liam-stock [violinist girl] + =Falln-Stock [bob's dress] + *Lisajen-stock [redhead looking back] + *mizzd-stock [blue dress and victorian] + ~Alraunie-stock [gothic angel]

Totally downloaded this (after getting distracted - twice - by pictures in the sidebar). Not so much for the darkity darkness, but just for the hints and advice, in general.

Nice tips you got there, I will surely use some. :D Thanks.

(Clichés are good as long as the manip has quality. Yay! :la: Tough I can use the tips for not-gothic manips. A lot of them actually. Oh, well.)

And you can't open it? o.o

Download winrar.
[link] and pick your language. You get the trial version but you can still use it after the 40-days-period has ended.
