HOW TO CHANGE A PHOTO INTO A HORROR SPEAK EFFECT WITH PHOTOSHOP

By | December 16, 2021

The truth is very simple. With a view from inside the room, the background shown in the broken hole of the glass window (not hidden from the glass layer) should be 100% visible and all the rest should be less visible.

Step 6
After downloading the model pack, I chose this one to isolate and moved to the background of the room, placing it on the right side:

The model looks so saturated against the background so I used an adjustment layer (with a Clipping Mask of course) to change its color.

Selective Color 1:

Hue / Saturation:

Step 7
Add a new layer below the model layer, use a black brush to create a shadow under, the chair of the dress:

Photoshop


As we see the light on the model from the front, so she must have a shadow behind. So create a new layer, use a soft brush to black paint the approriate shape behind it and the chair (the long and narrow one), then lower the opacity to 70%:

Step 8
Now I’m using a hairbrush to hide the bad hair cut on her back.

Photoshop


Create a new layer, pick a color on the hair from this section (we get #030.005) and use a hair brush, number 975 to triple click (while holding down the left mouse) as the pic below shows:

Transform and add a layer mask for the hair eraser on the shoulders and arms to make only the outer parts of the shoulders visible:

Photoshop


Duplicate the hair layer and transform to make the hair strands look natural:

Photoshop


Step 9
Create a new layer on top, use a soft brush to paint black on the eyes then lower the opacity to 50%:

Photoshop


Another new layer, use a hard white brush, 5 px to paint in the center of the eye, then enter as 50% opacity:

Photoshop


With a new layer, use a soft brush to paint black around the eyes and lower the opacity to 50% again:

Photoshop


Step 10
Another new layer, use a soft brush to paint the brown down from its mouth:

Photoshop


On a new layer, use this brush to darken the cheeks:

Photoshop


Step 11
Create two more new layers, set foreground color to #a3a0a0, use a cobweb brush, number 968, 696 to paint on the side of the chair, and use the stretch tools to transform them to fit the pose of the model and chair.

Photoshop


Create a new layer, use the cobweb brush, number 432, paint on the dress, transform, duplicate and transform again to make everything look like a spider web in a connected network: Step 12
On a new layer, using brush number 1064, paint on the part of the model’s body that fills the chair, eraser the part that extends out from the shoulders, then duplicate this layer and lower the opacity to 50%:

Photoshop

Step 13
Open 1 share mouse. Cut this mouse and place him behind the chair and place this layer under the cobweb layer:

Photoshop


With a new layer below the mouse layer, we create a shadow for it:

Photoshop


Add a new Hue/Saturation layer (with a Clipping Mask) to drop the light:

Photoshop


Use a black brush to erase the head:

Photoshop


Take a new layer with Clipping Mask, use a soft brush to paint black on the mouse 1′s body and tail then set this layer to Soft light 70%:

Photoshop


This step is to balance the colors for this mouse (which the body needs to darken to match the head).

Step 14
Now we are going to add more mice. Cut 2 mice and place them as they touch the cobweb under the model’s shirt, place this layer over the cobweb. Use the transform and warp tools to turn the head and right leg (stretch them) to get an approriate pose.

Photoshop


Create two new layers, add two shadows for this mouse: a shadow below him and on the right side as we did with the model (in step 7).

With the shadow under the mouse, I used a black brush with a small diameter and 100% opacity (normal mode) and a soft black brush with a larger diameter and 40% opacity for the right shadow:

Photoshop

Step 15
Add some adjustment layers with Clipping Masks to change the color of the mouse 2.
Hue / Saturation 1:

Selective Color:

Photoshop


Hue / Saturation 2:

Photoshop


This is the result:

Photoshop


Step 16
I used a new layer with Clipping Mask for mouse 2. Take a soft white brush and paint on the left side of mouse 2 body to make it brighter as it needs lighter than the right one. Set this layer to Overlay 30%:

Step 17
Now we are going to add a crack effect for the bedroom walls. Create a new layer above the background layer (room), name it “crack effect”, use crack brush, number 1076, 1116, 1092 with black color to paint on the room wall in the following areas:

Photoshop


Photoshop


As we can see, in the original image, the crack at the top of the wall shows the inside of the brickwork.
