STEP BY STEP / Photoshop witchcraft
1 Enlarge the eyes
Open movie_witch.jpg and press Ctrl+J. Go to Filter>Distort>Liquify. Click the Bloat tool, then resize the brush until it’s larger than the eyeball. Click each eye a few times to enlarge them, then switch to the Pucker tool and reduce the brush size to shrink the pupils.
2 Thin the chin
Use the Warp tool to push in the nose and chin in short, sharp movements so that they’re exaggeratedly small and pointy, and make the neck thinner. Push the mouth up to give it a subtle smile. Click OK. Next, click the New Layer icon in the Layers panel and click the Brush tool.
3 Soften the edges
Set the brush’s Opacity to 30%, then paint the edges of the hair and costume with a large soft-edged brush to fade them. Create a Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer, set Contrast to 21, Brightness to 24. Add aPhoto Filter adjustment layer with the Cooling Filter (82).
4 Colour the eyes
Add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer. Check Colorize and set Hue 120, Saturation 60. Press Ctrl+I and reduce the brush size, then paint green around the pupils. Next, click on the Type tool. Choose a bold font such as Trajan Pro in black, then type a title on a faded part of the image.
5 Transform the title
Grab the Move tool, check Show Bounding Box, then click the box to transform the title. Go to Layer>Layer Style>Style Settings and check Drop Shadow. Set Angle to 120, Size to 5, Distance to 16 and Opacity to 36. Title done, add smaller text for the tagline and credits.
6 Let it snow
Fill a new layer below the type with black, then go to Filter>Noise>Add Noise. Choose Amount 400, Type: Gaussian, Monochromatic. Then Filter>Artistic>Dry Brush>OK, then Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur. Set 1px. Set Blend Mode to Screen, and erase the snow on the face.
