Step 1: Step One: Securing Images/fire Up the Photoshop
I also set aside time to "google" some images: Varicose veins, roadrash, and a human bite.
Step 2: Step Two: Jeepers Creepers, White Out Those Peepers.
Step 3: Step Three: Fill My Eyes.. With Blur.
Then I set the layer opacity at 22%, making a very nice "milky" eye look.
I found focusing on my eyes made mine very dry, remember to blink and on that note, breathe and have a heartbeat.
Step 4: Step Four: Get Sullen Eyes and Cheeks.
I then made a semi-zigzag pattern on each cheekbone, to deepen the gaunt look.
Step 5: Step Five: Thrombosis, or Blood Clotted Veins.
I busted out the healing tool, chose a good vein and carefully planted them over my forehead.
(To use the healing tool, find the image you want to impose on another image, hold "ALT" on a pc and I have no clue for the Mac, click the image, then release, go to the image to "enhance" and start drawing carefully... if you can see both images, you'll see a mini cursor on the source file as well as the file you are painting on)
Step 6: Step Six: How It All Started With a Love Bite.
In order to show that this is a latter-type zombie, we need a good bite. Where better than the neck?
I did the same technique as in step five, healing brush and patience. Remember that you can press "CTRL-ALT-Z" to go back if you make a mistake.
After that was placed, a bit of burning from the burn tool made it look a tad fresher and bruised.
Step 7: Step Seven, Scabby Face.
No healing brush for this, as we want it to show up bold, vivid and kinda nasty.
I found a nice roadrash image, hit the clone stamp tool at 100% and slowly worked the edges, making sure not to grab anything beyone the "boo boo".
Step 8: Step Eight: Darken It Up.
Step 9: Step Nine: Make a HUGE Mistake
Lesson from this mistake:
DO NOT BE IMPATIENT.
Step 10: Step Ten: Vein Those Eyes.
Don't worry about being perfect, the blue will handle that.
I made sure my tool was set on one pixel pen and drew some wiggly lines. After that is done, lightly blue the whole layer, adjusting to get the perfect amount of veiny redness.
Step 11: Wrap Up: Go Get Some Brains.
You are now a member of the undead, shamble with pride.
Thanks for reading this, I hope it helps at least one person make a frightful image to "creep" their facebook friends with (It worked for me).
