For #2:
01. Duplicate your base layer & set to screen, 100%.
02. Duplicate base once again. Desaturate & set to overlay, 100%.
03. Create a new layer. Fill with #010F2D and set to exclusion, 100%.
04. Create another new layer. Fill it with #E3E3E3 and set to color burn, 100%
05. Create a new layer. Fill it with #9BD9F3 and set to color burn, 100%
06. Make another new layer, once again. Fill with #063616 and set to soft light, 40%.
07. Create another layer, fill with #E3E3E3 and set to color burn, 100%.
08. Create yet another new layer and fill with #F1D5BA. Set to multiply, 75%.
09. I added a brush around the edges but you can add text, brushes, whatever.

For #12(it's actually one I've used before except this time I used the selective color):

First sharpen your base.

Then go to Filter >> Surface Blur, set Radius to 5 and Threshold to 5. And/or take blur tool and blur the sharpened and pixel-y areas, so skin looks clean and smooth.

Duplicate the base three times, set first two duplicated layers to Screen 100%, the third copy set to Soft Light 100% and Desaturate (Image >> Adjustments >> Desaturate or Shift+Ctrl+U).

Now the coloring part (Actually you can stop after any of these steps and get very nice coloring):

Add this gradient and set it to Hard Light 80%.

Next add this gradient and set it to Multiply 100%.

Next gradient, set it to Soft Light 100%.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And the last one - set to Soft Light 100%.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Next duplicate the base, drag it on top, desaturate and set to Soft Light 100%.

Next add a selective color layer (Layer--->New Adjustment Layer--->Selective Color) and choose Blacks:

Set the black color to +15%.

Then go to neutrals and set the yellow to -15%.

And you're done:)

Thank you. And you're nice, as usual.
