"Max Payne" Art Style


Nebby

Recommended Posts

In the recent event's of Rockstar* yelling at me about abusive behavior (irrelevant, I know) I decided to make a MP3 art style tutorial... tounge.gif

 

 

Step 1. Find a picture you'd like to use... i.e. anything dramatic I guess... I'll be using Niko's default artwork.

Step 2. You must duplicate the layer and set it's style as "Screen".

Now you must change the opacity of the duplicated layer to "74%". Now, after you do that, click on the drag tool and adjust the layer's until you get a good enough blur effect...

 

 

Step 3. Now that you've done that, click on the duplicated layer and go to Image > Adjustment's > Variations.... After you've done this click on "More Magenta" or "More Blue". After you've done this proceed to step four.

 

 

Step 4. You now need to open a new document the size of 3x3. After you've done this draw a line in the middle and save it as a new pattern.

 

 

After you've done that you must create a new layer and fill it completely black. Now go into blending option's and select overlay. Now find a light pink color and select it. Change the opacity to 30 - 40%. After you've done that go into Patern Overlay and select the pattern you just created... Change the opacity of it to 43%.

 

 

Now just change the opacity of the layer itself to 20% and you're done!

 

Result's:

You can mess around with your creation more as I made this fairly quickly.*

Pretty close, only rockstar games is using a palette of colors to simulate the bad frequency, see 1 2 3

Yeah - I was trying to recreate that but eventually got clueless. happy.gif

 

Thank's, guy's. Maybe I'll end up fixing it later. tounge.gificon14.gif

But just one thing: the Step 5 is a bit confusing, imo. When you say "Now find a light pink color and select it", you mean that we should fill the black layer with this pink? And then change the opacity of the layer?

And when we have to go to the Pattern Overlay and fill the layer with this Pattern, you mean in the same layer or in another one?

 

Maybe I'm a bit slow today, my bad. But good work. wink.gif

Like I said, is a good idea to use a variation of colors (step 3).

I did it using the effect only on the right side.

Very good tutorial. I've always liked this kind of effect.

 

I used a similar method when I created this BF3 style poster. It looks much nicer though when it's the entire image that's duplicated like yours, instead of each individual layer. This will be usefull in future. icon14.gif

Thank's guy's. smile.gif

 

Like Narcis suggested - using a variety of color's really does make it look more Rockstar* authentic:
