An anon asked me if I ombred the hair in my icon, and I did not lol. Another anon asked me to make a tutorial for how I made the ombre in the icon, so I am making a tutorial for it for the 3rd time cause the other two times I tried the images broke and i didn’t save them so I had to redo the photoshop process :/ this time I saved them
A). Go in game and make your sim. Find the base hair color you want and I recommend downloading some recolors of that hair so that you have more options for the ombre.
B). Go through some poses and find the one you want, then pause CAS using the ‘cheat’ casclockspeed 0
C). Now find the angle you want for you screenshots. I normally just do the basic front angle. After this, click on the hair and it will zoom you in to the sims face, zoom out to however far you want, but make sure the hair category stays open.
D). Take your first screenshot with the color you want the base/root/natural color of the hair to be. Then (without clicking on anything on the sim) go in the hair category and find the recolor or the other color you want your ombre to be. DO NOT CHANGE ZOOM, CAMERA ANGLE, OR ANYTHING.
E). Select the 2nd color and screenshot, you may want to take a few extra screenshots of a few different colors so you have more options.
I am choosing these two:
A). Open both screenshots together in photoshop, with one layers ontop of the other.
B). Delete the backgrounds and add a new layer on the bottom with anything u want it doesn’t really matter okok:
A). Using the soft eraser tool(with 100% opacity), erase the top of the hair and keep going down until you get to where you want the ombre to stop.
B). (Optional) I turn the opacity down to 20% and go over the area where the ombre needs to fade to give it a slightly more fading effect. But it is fine without it imo
C). Merge the two sim layers and do whatever normal editing you would do to your photos
lol the end
