OK, first thing is to open a picture of your face into Photoshop.
You should know how to do this by now!

You can use PhotoBooth, a picture from your camera
(you can get it to the computer with Google Drive) or some other way.

Anyway, it will look something like this.
You might want to pose “Zombie-Like”.

 Hit COMMAND + J to COPY the LAYER.


STEP #2

Choose the MAGNETIC LASSO TOOL (It’s hiding under the other Lasso tools!).
Trace around your skin! (See video below).

 Go to: Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation, slide the slider around and make your skin look “dead.”

 

 

 

 

 

Just play with the settings until you look dead!

STEP #11

Some Texture!

Find some texture on the Internet – cracked or concrete or something and paste it into your Photoshop image.

 Scroll through the Blending Modes and find one you like …

Try Multiply, Screen or Overlay or whatever you like best …

 If you see other blending modes you like as you’re scrolling down, don’t be afraid to experiment.

Blending Modes are awesome! (See video below on how to do it!)

Hint: You can scroll through the different Blending Modes by hitting OPTION + SHIFT + PLUS

 

 Now erase the texture so it only covers the skin.

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, Lower the Opacity!
