Gothic Makeover Photoshop Video Tutorial


Gothic Makeover Photoshop Video Tutorial - Title PostI try to keep things fresh whilst getting our Art System Photoshop course finished, so I thought I’d record a fun Gothic Makeover video tutorial to whet your appetite for what’s to come! A lot of the techniques vary massively from when I started doing these ‘makeovers’ – the main focus these days is using non-destructive methods, and keeping the highlights crisp and visible. This took at least a decades worth of trial and error, for you just 15 minutes! Enjoy, subscribe and share :)

    Liked the original WAY BETTER. Sorry, just being honest. The manipulated version makes her look demonic. Overdone eyes, eyebrows, etc… Less is more.

      lol I think that’s sort of the point…

      Appreciate your input MOJO, but you do know we’re a Fantasy / Sci Fi / Horror site yeah? Demonic is what we’re after 8-)

      Plenty of other sites already have the classical beauty retouch tutorials well covered ;)



    • Well, this tutorial is called “Gothic Makeover…” Most Goths do tend to have overdone eyes, narrow painted on brows and they tend to wear contacts that look a lot like the eye technique Conz aplied. Do not know where you live but maybe there is a short supply of Goth/Alternative women there.

  2. Your timing is impeccable Sir ! Fantastic, just what I have been looking for :) Many thanks and your website is amazing !

    Very effective. I’m sometimes a little stuck with questions such as why a particular blend mode is used for example but I get the basic idea. I think I’m a little behind with what to me are quite advanced techniques. What takes you five minutes would take me eight hours of googling. :)

    Never thought of using gradient maps in this way, so thank you for that.

    Good speed of instruction, easy to follow and it enables us to strengthen/lessen the effect as we deem necessary.

    Top work !
