Welcome to my First Avy tutorial I will be showing you fellow members how to make avys with Promising results here a look of the kind of thing you will be making today.


The first step is quite simple find reasonable stock. The problem now a days is that people will pick out any random stocks and their results come out LQ. The stock is one of the most important parts of your avy. Make sure when finding one that it is in a good quality. Do not panic if the stock is to big because you can simply just crop my stock will be this innocent picture of kid Gohan :3
click here for image

Step 2: Now crop the image to an appropriate size. The key to cropping is to make sure that the height and length are identical because your end result will be 75x75. So to make it more simply if you have a huge stock that is about 1880x1080 (like my stock) You want to aim for something smaller but equal I went for 412x412. The height and legth do not have to be exactly the same but It would but make sure it is right about that range. Before saving the image make sure you sharpen it so that it does not lose that much quality when you resize. Result:


Step 3: Now that you have your image visit PicResizer and upload your saved image and click continue. Note: sometimes when you press continue it might say this webpage cannot be displayed if that happens simply refresh the page and re upload your image. If you keep getting this respond I suggest using google chrome. Now after you have hit continue go to the number 2 and select custom size and make it 75x75 and press "I'm done Resize" Now what this should do is resize your image and make it your desired size here is my result.


Step 4: now open up Photoshop and open up the new resized image. If the image looks a bit LQ feel free to sharpen it. If the sharpening is a bit to much go to edit>fade sharpen and set that to around 30-50 or to what ever floats your boat here is my result:


Step 5: now go to image>Adjustments>Fade color and set the fade to 100 and the color intensity to about 120. Now go to image>Adjustments>Hue and saturation and set the saturation to about 24. Now go to Images>Adjustments>Brightness and contrast and set the brightness to -6 (if your stock is dark set this to about +10) and set the contrast at 27. Lastly go to Image>Adjustments>Curves set the output to 182 and the input to 176. After these setting this should be your result
Before

After


Step 6: Now make a new adjustment layer and use a gradient map. Layer>New Adjustment Layer> Gradient map or you can use the half circle icon on the bottom center of your layer panel. Now choose the red and green default texture if you do not have this Gradient the first color is e10019 and the second color is 00601b now set the layer to screen and lower down the opacity down to your liking. I usually go for around 20-40 but for this image I went for 24.
Outcome:


Step 7: now make another Adjustment layer and go to Gradient map this time choose the purple and orange gradient map if you do not have this map the first color is 290a59 and the second color is ff7c00. Now set this to soft light and bring the opacity down to about 20 or whatever looks the best to you. here is my result


Step 8: Lastly make a new Adjustment layer and this time we will use the exposure Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Exposure. set the offset to +0.0248 and the Gamma correction to about 0.95. Lower down the Opacity of this layer to what ever you like. I go around 30-50 but for this one I used 33. Now save this image as a JPEG image so that you will be able to use it here on the boards. Make sure you set the quality to 10 so it can look the best as it can be.
Final Result


Thanks for visiting my First Avy tut post your outcomes bellow I want to see what you guys made and Ill be back another day with a brand new tut thanks .
