How To: Make A Sexy Beard

Postby Kevin on Sat Aug 30, 2014 1:30 am

Hello guys, today I’m going to teach you how to add beards/mustache/goatees or anything that concerns facial hair, to a player in any NBA 2k game. In this tutorial, I used Manu Ginobili's cyberface as an example.

What you need:
1.) Photoshop/ Gimp
2.) Patience
3.) Ability to read well and thoroughly


First, open the dds file for the player’s face.

Image

Then create a new layer. Use the brush tool and make your color picker setting like this:

Image
(FYI, that’s the color gray.)

Then you need to paint the part that you wanted to have the beard on, like this. You can either paint his whole jaw as a whole or you can paint a part of his jaw so you can flip it later.

Image

Then go to Filter >> Noise >> Add Noise

Image

It should now look like this

Image

Then go to Filter >> Blur >> Radial Blur and copy my settings

Image

Result:

Image
(It looks like shit for now. But trust me, it’s going to be good!)

After you do that, pay attention to this part of Photoshop

Image

Now see that “Normal” thing there before the Opacity? Change that to Hard Light

Image

It should look like this

Image

Then it’s your turn to experiment with this but since I'm very helpful :lol: , I’ll show you how I did mine.

Press ctrl+u and copy my settings

Image

And the result should be this

Image

Then I went and screwed with the Curves. Press CTRL+M and so I went on with this settings

Image

So now the beard is looking SEXY

Image

When you’re satisfied with the result, CTRL+A to copy the texture of the beard and paste it

Image

It will look like that but use the Hard Light Blending thing again aaaaaaand Voila!

Image

Now, go to Edit >> Transform >> Flip Horizontally

Image

TADAAAAAAAA!

Now just pair it beside the beard that you made earlier

Outcome:
Image

Image

Now, you do the rest. Do the Alpha Channel, Green Texture, etc.

I mean, taking an already made cyberface and applying different hairstyles to it for personal use.
