Hello /wsr/
I want the sun in the background to be more like the Japanese rising sun. (I'll include picture)
I just cannot for the life of me seem to figure out how to mask the actual samurai fully. The black\whiteness makes this very hard. Even a tutorial or guide that allows shows me how would be greatly appreciated. I tried channels and levels, and failed miserably

When you can't mask due to similar colors, you use the fucking lasso tool. Don't be so lazy. What are you, a nigger?

This one was even easier than that - 3 layers.
The bottom layer was the original image.
The middle layer was the rising sun. I inverted the colors to have the black background, changed the hue back to red with the hue-saturation tool, drew the 2 beams that were incomplete, blurred it 2 pixels because your rising sun image is shit with jagging like no tomorrow, and added grime. Made the resulting layer's mode "lighten only", to preserve some of the moon's detail, though I'm gonna post a version with this layer in normal mode next.
Then the armor was the topmost layer. To select it, I just used the fuzzy select tool on the black border, and then the lasso to deselect what was needed from the armor. 2 minutes of clicking and that was that. I then selected every red color with the color selection tool, and deleted it.

Writing this took me longer than what it takes to do that shit, OP. Get it together.

With the rising sun layer on normal mode. Of course, this version only needs 2 layers, because the rising sun covers the bottom one completely.

np.

Just, don't depend on only some tools. Try to understand what's there for you to use, and come up with how to use it in the most efficient way. It's not hard.

Thanks for the wallpaper.
