i edited this for the background

wolvesthrones  asked:

How do you make your pastel edit?

Hey. First, I color the image from scratch (you can find psds and tutorials out there on sites like @itsphotoshop if you’re new to coloring). Then I cut out the figure from the background using the pen tool. Then I pick my color palette. I put a color fill layer behind the figure, then I put a photo filter on top of the figure with the color of the background so it blends better (I put a mask on this layer and any adjustment layer that only pertains to the isolated figure). Then I adjust the colors and brightness and little (again masking only the figure). Then I color the clothes how I want. With the Sam graphic, I colored his jacket the same blue as the top graphic’s background and his shirt the same color as the bottom graphic’s background. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions. ♥

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.
