Steps

Here are the steps as I remember them for making my “creature” man.

Background: black and white photos of graveyards, red layer in overlay mode with opacity adjustments.

Man layer: eliminated the background and cleaned up the edges of hair and skin so it would not look cut out.

Monster mask: I found a very scary mask picture and put it over the man layer. I masked out all the area around the hair, forehead, and some around the eyes. I colored the man layer so that it would match the color of the mask. I did a lot of blending on these layer to get the right look.

Moldering skin: new layer over man/mask. Set layer to bevel & emboss, style>inner bevel>direction>up>then blending options>opacity 0>blend mode normal. I then selected a brush that would give me uneven indentations. The only thing that shows on this layer is an embossed area wherever you paint your strokes. I added another layer to tint with color.

Blood drips: Alien Skin 4000, water drops.

Thanks again for all the votes and feedback.

Cathy
