I Was Ready To Be Offended By This ‘Ray Rice Makeup Tutorial,’ Until She Put On Her Foundation

The footage of former Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée in the face started a much-needed conversation about domestic violence. This comedian took a completely different approach with a “Ray Rice Inspired Makeup Tutorial” that could’ve gone so incredibly wrong but instead gets it so so right.

I took screenshots of my progress from my commission piece so I could show you guys my process. I love seeing it go from flat colors to lighting and shadows. Click on the pictures to get a run down of what I did. I kinda forgot how to color this a few times while working.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to use Photoshop to retouch your portraits (without any special actions). I’ve already done a tutorial on skin smoothing here, so if you haven’t read that, please start there. This tutorial will pick up where that one left off, so please read it first! 

In this tutorial, we’re working with a photo that my mom took of me when I was 17. This photo needs a bit less work than I’m going to show you—but, since this is a full walkthrough of retouching, I wanted to give you sort of the “everything” package. Just keep that in mind when doing your own photos: not every step is necessary. At the end, I’ll show you for this particular photo which steps I would omit. Remember: the best retouching job is the one that doesn’t look obvious.

Here we go!

IMMA TEACH YOU HOW TO SPRITE

LISTEN UP KIDS, TODAY I’M GONNA SHOW YOU HOW I SPRITE!

We’re going to be making a pikachu head! Nice and simple!

image

Yeah this lil’ guy!
We’re going to go through some steps on how to make a pikachu sprite!

1) First of all you should have a program to sprite. If you have a windows computer then you can use ms paint if you want, that’s what I use, if you have a mac you can also use GIMP.

2) Now we need to get some reference. This can be art or other sprites for the pokemon of your choice.

That looks like a good amount! My site of choice for sprites is this site.

3) Now we need to make a rough sketch of the head.

Remember to put the transparency on!

4)  Once you’ve made a rough outline, we need to go over in black.

5) Time for flat colours!

6) Now I’m going to add shading inside the outline.

7) And lastly, I’m going to add shading on the outline.

(Optional)

I like to add a background.

8) Now you just need to resize your image using left click. You can change the number you use to resize but if it’s about the size of an official sprite or a little bigger you resize it 400%.

So we go from this:

Keep practicing and I hope this helped!

DIY Silver Tattoo Tutorial from The Makers. This is real silver leaf, not silver foil. From personal experience, when you work around silver or gold leaf you don’t want to make mistakes (because it isn’t cheap). Mistakes include wasting it by cutting to much, sneezing or coughing and having it crumple up on itself, and not smoothing it enough so it doesn’t stick.
