Special Comic Book Photo Effect
Under Photo Effect, Photoshop Tutorial
In this Photoshop tutorial, it will show you how to add a comic book effect to an ordinary photo using a few layers, the Cutout and Poster Edges filters and a few different layer blend modes. Sometimes, it is nice to add this unusual effect to your own pictures.
In this tutorial, it will show you how to create taking photos with long exposures. It would be a nice idea to do that in Photoshop. If the background is too dark the blend mode won’t work. You’ll probably have to use another one with a outer glow.
Most of special scenes can be made of different common images. Simple old carriage, bones plus one or two natural scenes can form a nice piece of special carriage scene using photo manipulation. This is mainly made using photo cut and paste plus color adjustment afterwards.
The techniques below will show you how to create an image similar to the final result I have obtained below although the image below took 3 hours to paint with alot of fine detail work, you will still get the idea.At the end, the layers merged its easier to use the color dodge tool to brush the edge of the planets making them ‘glow’.
To magnify your motion such as crying or shouting in a picture, you can have a try to apply some photo effects. The photo effects usually are lighting, however, this tutorial will show you something different such as applying smoke and dark environment.
If you find your pictures to be too boring, you can have a try to add some simple lightings and pick a green background for your image. It is very simple and easy to do, it just requires you to have basic photoshop skills.
