The idea of ??this tutorial is not to cling to the values ??presented in the tools and filters, as this may be different in each image. I even had difficulty reproducing the result, since I do not remember step by step, but I think I came close.
To create the parrot ice the first step is to choose the image

desaturate

Here the idea is to clear the beak and the eye to bring the overall tone

and also darken the lighter parts of the bird

invert

the idea of next steps is to enhance the details keeping colors. I did this by manipulating the colors "black", "white" and "Neutrals". This can be different and not required in other images

added to the background


ivanildo said 2 years ago 10/15/2011 7:56:56 PM EDT

Here I give a bluish tint to the ice


ivanildo said 2 years ago 10/15/2011 7:58:48 PM EDT

Now I use the eraser tool to give a bit of transparency in some parts of the ice


ivanildo said 2 years ago 10/15/2011 8:00:52 PM EDT

In this case I still need to accentuate the white so I increased the brightness and contrast


ivanildo said 2 years ago 10/15/2011 8:02:24 PM EDT

The final touch (and optional) was to add some brightness in some parts
