Tutorial 9 & 10 - Anna Paquin & Leighton Meester

Requested by forensicrulan. Both of these tuts are pretty much the same with a few slight variations. I've included a .psd file for both of the coloring techniques. They're not too hard as long as you're familiar with curves which can be a little difficult when you're starting out. I consider these tutorials to be at a basic skill level. I'd love to see what everyone comes up with. I don't mind people following the tuts to the last detail but it'd be great to see some variety. Have fun and enjoy! :D

Step 4 is optional. You can choose to end it here but I found that the sharpening was a little too harsh.

4. Go to Edit > Fade Sharpen. Opacity 30%.
