I am a HUGE The Walking Dead fan. I loved the dark and secluded imagery of their social media count down, leading to its fourth season premiere. When one of my friends posted an underexposed, but hilarious picture… I ran to Photoshop.
As you can see from the “before” and “after,” I had to play with the lighting and then contour the skin with shading and highlighting. I removed the redness of the skin and added a light gold tinge with a grunge texture overlay. After some minor cosmetic fixes, I matched font as best as I could and added the countdown logo. It’s not perfect, but it was a really fun, quick edit.
