Photoshopping a face tutorial

Postby Nnnnsic on Mon May 15, 2006 2:51 pm

I'm thinking very seriously about making one or two Photoshop face tutorials as I had quite a few people seem interested in the hw-to that a lot of us did with this thread.

So what I need is a head (as opposed to needing head... and we won't go there right now).

And then I also need a character or a scene to place the head, or rather face, onto.

So who wants to volunteer... Craig? Wendell? :lol:

A decent sized image or a few decent sized images of you where the lighting on your face isn't too harsh.

It can be front on, to the side... anything.

But realise this will determine the sort of picture we can use well in terms of mapping your face to something.

Depending on the extent of interest for these, I might do a few showing some easy ones, medium ranged ones, and hard ones.

To give an example, this one of Durer and this one of Seven of Nine were fairly easy, this one of Alexander Downer was medium, and this one of Yoda was hard.

Craig, did you even LOOK at that thread?

Leigh is just looking to deflect attention away from himself :)

Ahh.. gotta love photochopping.

I think that would be great too. Maybe a collection of photoshop tips/tutorials/actions etc.

I am.

I asked for that initially in the first post in this thread.

And then I also need a character or a scene to place the head, or rather face, onto.


So, who wants to give me some suggestions?

And if anyone else wants their head photoshopped onto something, I'll certainly try and make a tutorial out of you too, time permitting of course.

Sorry missed that Leigh. How about Craig as James Dean? Or maybe as lead singer in a boy band? (sorry don't know any)

I've just come up with one that no one will see coming.

Not even me.

It'll be the hard one. :)

And I mean hard.

The Suzi is gone. Replaced by a Chev.

And then there's the dog. :)

Ok. I've just recorded the first one.

I shall be exporting it to a variety of formats... probably Windows Media (WMV) for our Windows users, Quicktime (MOV) for our Mac users, and Flash video (FLV) for our users who prefer to download nothing. :P

I'll be sticking it online later tonight and recording another one, hopefully, right after I stick it online.
