    Download:

    Render (optional)- http://planetrenders.net/renders/displayimage.php?pos=-28207


    PART ONE : Skin Tone
    1. First paste your render in a new transparent layer and name it "Render".
    [​IMG]

    2. Make a new layer and call it Background. Fill this with black. Put it behind the render.
    [​IMG]

    3. Duplicate the Render layer, then on the duplicated layer go to Colors>Brightness-Contrast , and turn the Brightness/Contrast all the way up. Then move your duplicated layer behind the original render layer. Set the opacity to 75, then duplicate it.
    [​IMG]

    4. On the duplicated layer, (white render) go to Filers>Blur>Gaussian Blur and set both horizontal and vertical to 20. Then Duplicate the blurred layer 3 times. *OPTIONAL* To make things easier you can then merge the blurred layers.
    [​IMG]

    5. This is the interesting part. Create a new layer, and fill it with the brush "Sparks". Completely fill it.
    [​IMG]

    6. Then repeat step 5 with using the Vine brush. Place this layer under the spark covered layer.
    [​IMG]

    7. On the spark covered layer, go to Filters>Map>Displace. Keep everything the same but change "Y Placement Layer" to the vine covered layer. Gaussian Blur this layer by 20.
    [​IMG]

    8. On the vine covered layer, go to Filters>Map>Displace. Keep everything the same but change "Y Placement Layer" to the spark covered layer. Change the opacity to 10.
    [​IMG]

    9. Set the vine and spark covered layers to Overlay. (this gives her more of a tan look)
    [​IMG]

    PART TWO : Effects
    1. Create a new layer, and name it Effect Layer 1. Go to your brushes and set the color of the brush to 36abc4. Then use the Brushes you downloaded and pick nice one :D Then pick one place and brush it one time in that place. Make the brush big (.30-1.00) Do this until the area around her filled with these brushes. This layer should then be put in front of the original render, but behind the sparks and vines. After you have done this, use the eraser and erase anything touching her dress or skin. It needs to be touching mainly her hair. Set this layer to Dodge.

    2. Duplicate Effect Layer 1, and put it behind the render. Set this layer to dodge and colorize it. Make it darker then the original Effects layer. Set the layer opacity to 35.
    [​IMG]

    3. Create a new layer, and name it Effect Layer 2. Go to your brushes and set the color of the brush to 009cff. Then use the Brushes you downloaded and pick nice one :D Then pick one place and brush it one time in that place. Make the brush big (.30-1.00) Do this until the area around her filled with these brushes. Put this layer behind Effect Layer 1 and make the opacity 30.

    4. Your pretty much done. You can add a C4D or whatever you like. Have fun and post your result.
