Learn how to create a mysterious tree house in the forest using manipulation techniques in Photoshop. This tutorial focuses mainly on lighting effects. Learn how to give the appearance of nighttime, give off a glow of light, and add shadows. Gradients, clipping masks, downloading brushes, and blending modes will also be covered. Overall this is an easy tutorial that is great for beginners to learn basic tools of photo manipulation. I hope you enjoy it! Let’s begin!

Photoshop/Picnik Tutorial

For this photo I used the soften tool to bring out the eye. I used a tool on picnik called vampire eyes to change my eye to the dark red. I also used the fake blood tool inside my eye to make it look darker. I used the make up tool to put a dark ring around my eye and to add more eyeliner. I put the picture in black and white and erased the eye to give it color. I used the cinema view to give the picture a old movie look. I imported the photo to photoshop and smudged my eyeliner to make it look like I was crying. I imported a picture of blood and blended it under my eye to make it look like tears.
