Step 10 Make a new layer and load the mask for the figure that you created in step 3. Next use a gradient to fill the shape – here I’ve used colour #bb818b. Then set the layer’s blending mode to Multiply and set the opacity to 80%.
Step 11 At this stage the colour on my figure is too bright; to knock the tone down, repeat the method from step 11. Add a new layer and set a gradient (colour #8d9db1). Set the layer’s blending mode to Multiply and the opacity to 45%.
Step 12 To create the spatter texture, I splashed black ink onto paper and scanned the image – the file is on the cover CD. Using the method from step 2, change the black to green and save it; then use the same method again to create a white splash effect.
Step 13 Finally, combine the green and white splash layers and import them into your canvas to finish your piece.
