Let’s make some cool, realistic tears. [MUSIC] Hey, guys, it’s Nemanja and welcome to another really fun episode today. I will show how to make realistic tears in Photoshop, and this can be useful in various situations. So for example, you have photo shooting. You have a model, you want to model to be sad or maybe crying. But in that moment of time, model cannot actually cry cannot produce tears, so if you want to make even more punchy image more dramatic story overall, you can do that later in Photoshop to add those tears, so without further ado, let’s jump straight in Photoshop. And let me show you how you can. Do it rid guys as you can see here. We have a father of women that is sad that is actually trying to cry on a set, But if you zoom this a little bit, you can see that there are no tears on her face, and I actually want to add some tears here to make this photo a little bit more punchy, more dramatic to tell a story a little bit better and this is really easy and simple process to be done. Just follow a few steps this. I will show you today so first I will create a new empty layer. I like to name it tears. I just like to name my layers, and now I will just use regular brush, not too soft, not too hard something around 5060 percent. It doesn’t matter exactly what high percent opacity and you can use any color that you like it doesn’t matter. I will use white because I already have it here, so I would just first create some kind of a tear shape. Maybe like this, and then I will use a smudge tool and just just define this shape a little bit better, something like I think. This looks pretty, pretty cool. Alright, and this is a disc. You see in a matter of a couple of seconds. We have really nice, realistic tear effect in. Photoshop know. Now the fun starts begin now. We need to convert this into realistic tear effects so to be able to do this. We just need to go and double. Click on the tear layer, right there to learn layer style dialog box and first thing what I like to do is to lower the fill opacity all the way to the zero, because I don’t want this tier to have any kind of fill color, so all the way to zero, that’s it, then I like to go to the shadows, drop shadow, click on it and go inside to play with the settings and here we need to change the shadow direction, The softness, the hardness to match everything like the like the shadow already in the image. So basically, we need to match the light directions and the shadow color and hardness like everything else on this phone, so basically the light. Direction is going from something like this. OK, and if we zoom it a little bit, you can see that this shadow is not black. It’s more like skin tone but darker and more saturated that this is black shadow. I don’t like it so I can go. Always here and change it to choose some kind of a skin tone. Something like this, make it more dark, a little bit more saturated and this is pretty cool. Let’s see this is pretty pretty decent and you can always play with some other settings here. This needs to be multiplied because it’s better. It doesn’t need it. It can be in normal bending mode. You will see something as I like it to have an X mode, and these settings vary from the image to the image. So this is pretty good. I like it and this is really nice, but it’s not quite there yet. The next step is to go to battle. And ambos. Click on it and you can see that this is already starts looking like a real tear shape, but it’s not there yet so here inside barrel and members, we have a lot of things that we can change and down below, we have shading so basically, we have opacity of the highlights opacity of the shadows, and because we already introduced the shadows down below. I like to remove it all the way to 0 I don’t want to add additional shadows, and now you can see. This looks much much better more close to the real tear effect. Only thing that we need to play with this here is the reflection part and one really cool. Tip here about highlights is that you need to match the highlight type. Actually, the light source that it’s hitting this tier with the light source that is actually on the image by default. So here, this image. If we zoom out, you can see that there is harsh. Light source coming on her her face. We have little bit harsher shadows, and we have here some reflections, etc, and there is an analyte sauce from her left side, our right side, so we need to match this this. This highlight right now that you can see it. Here is more like from a little bit bigger light source. Maybe a little bit softer, but if there is like, really soft light, maybe cloud today we would wouldn’t have any kind of harsh reflections on the tears, so you need to think about that. Maybe just go to the Google and Google, some tears on face images and see different kind of reflections from different kind of lighting conditions and just try to think about that, so it’s really easy and simple. Just you just need to go through this several times and to get Tuesday, so we need to make a little bit smaller reflection. So let’s play with this. I like to go all the way down all the way to 1000% maybe size, something like this. Maybe let’s see. This is pretty cool, so I like it like that, and let’s go here. Maybe to make the highlights a little bit brighter like these highlights right there. So this is pretty cool If I press okay and zoom it, you can see that. This is really nice looking tear. I really like it only thing that is missing. Is the path from the eye to this this right water? Drop Teardrop right here. So how we can do this really easy. Just use the same layer with the same styles right here that we made use. The brush doesn’t matter the color. I will go with the 30 or so maybe % we will see and make the brush smaller and just create a path. Okay, something like this, and this is really nice. Of course you can now use the eraser and just erase. Maybe here. Make this part thinner and just display with this. You know, this is just everything about playing having fun with this, adding few effects here. And there, maybe like that, and this really looks like a real tears, of course. If you messed a little bit more time to maybe add the path of the tear a little bit make banner etc. If you have even better impression over oh, but there is another cool trick that we can add here to make it even more realistic, and that’s to add some highlights to the skin because tear is practically water and when light hits the water, it will amplify the highlights under the surface so here we would have a little bit more pronounced highlights and we’ll create a new layer name it highlights okay, and I will choose brush with the Alt. I will sample skin tone and go with this into screen blending mode because I want to make this a little bit brighter, and I just wanted to use 10% opacity and really really soft brush 0% hardness just to add some highlights right here, but I don’t want to add anywhere else, except inside this tier shape. So unfortunately, here we have when we have this kind of effect, we cannot go and clip it to effect only this layer because there is no. Phil Phil is now set to zero. And as you can see, there are no effect. If we unclip it, we will have this effect, but we need to find some workaround, so there is fortunately workaround for this. You need to click ctrl and hold it to click on the layer throughout this selection and then just click on the layer mask tool all the layer mask, so this is how the layer mask looks like the shape of the tear and then go right here and just just add this really cool effect, so let’s make it brush smaller and add it here too, and just with this as you can see. This deer looks really really nice. So before this effect and just with small spice eating of the highlights. We have really nice, cool looking deer, all right. You just saw one really cool way. How you can add realistic? Tear a fact to your photos. But there is one thing that can be improved even more. So let me show you that really quickly. If we zoom, this theory can see that the reflection here is pretty much uniform, just one straight line across the tear shape and in real life, this is usually not the case and here this is happening just because of some limited options in barrel and was dialog box, so the best thing is to create our reflections manually so to be able to do this. Just uncheck the barrel and ambo’s dialog box create a new layer. I will name it reflections. Okay, and I just want to copy the same layer mask from the layer below by holding alt or option key. Drag it right there. So now I will use a lasso tool and just go and make some irregular shapes like that and by holding alt and backspace or option + backspace on the Mac, I will just fill it with a white color foreground color now. I’ll go with blur tool. Just blur this a bit. Okay, because it’s too harsh, and also I can uncheck this chain icon between layer and mask and move this a little bit. Maybe even rotate it. Something like this to look really cool and also. I will lower the opacity a little bit, so this is awesome and create a new layer. This is reflection number 2 and here. I’ll lose just brush. Maybe 20 or so percent opacity just create or maybe 100 and then we will already pass to just create reflection right here, use as much to smudge this in the shape of a deer like this awesome, We can move it a little bit to the left and lower the opacity, and also as you can see guys right here. The light is coming also from this direction right there. So that means that maybe we would have a small reflection right here. So lets let’s make this too. Why not we can do that? And this is really nice. And also we can go back in our effects and create another shadow inner shadow. So right there to go on this side right here as you can see. This is how the shadow looks so just we make it like like that just a little bit. This is before! This is after this small shape right there. I really like it, so this is it. This is with reflections that we made with Viola Namboze. Let’s hide our reflections. This is cool! This is again cool thing, but with our reflections. I like it even more. This is like, really nice, realistic Looking. Deer, right, guys, That’s it for today’s episode. I really hope that you liked it and that you learned something really cool, interesting and fun from this one. Also, now you can add even more tears, different size, different shapes, etc. It’s up to you to practice experiment and have fun also. Guys, you can save now this tear preset to your styles and next time you can just want click and have your tear ready, so it’s really simple and easy to be done. Actually, let me show you really quickly for you guys to stick with me till the end like a bonus tape. You just need to go to a window styles and make sure that your own layers that contain these effects and just go right here, say new style preset name. It tears, for example. Press, OK, and that’s it now you can hide this, create a new layer and whatever you make here, something really cool, You just go back to. Styles, click on this and here it is, of course, because we uncheck barrel and elbows. You can check it back and we have this really cool effect. You can draw paint for terror with this. You have your tier ready to be applied here, right guys, so now. That’s definitely for today’s episode.
