I decide to give you an introduction to the the world of Photomanipulation. With this techniques you will be able to create some art like they’ve done on www.deviantart.com.

In my opinion everyone, and I mean EVERYONE is an artist. The difference between the most well-known artists and normal people may only be the fact that they know how to realize their minds in drawn art, music etc. They know, how to deal with their tools. For example imagine a fantasy landscape. The most beautiful place in the world. And then imagine you would be able to realize this dream into reality. Most people will love it!

Photomanipulation is a way to express yourself

What do we need?

No Photomanipulation could reach nice results without well taken shots. In this tutorial I will show you some of the dark manipulation. But this techniques could also applied in other ways.

The head is the base. We want to hurt this guy. So we need something that looks very ugly, so as scars. In this picture I use a scar and another shot from the stock-photo section on deviantart.

What we do not need!

We don’t need some ugly plugin filters. We only need the base-filters of Photoshop.

Skills you will learn:
1) Blending scars onto skin. Coloring.
2) Handling with Layer Masks.
3) Making the face burned. (Blending Modes, Burn Tool)
4) Using the Clone Stamp Tool.
5) General Introduction into some tools of Photoshop 7 (Clone Stamp Tool, Burn and Dodge Tool)

First download this zip file. All pictures are attached.
O.K. here we go. Let’s start.

Description:
1) Open the file “head.jpg”. Or take a shot of yourself.
2) Dublicate this Layer (Rightclick onto the Layer and choose Dublicate Layer)

5) Now clean out the mouth. (While holding down the ALT-Key, Leftclick on an area of the face where is only skin. That means to pic up the skin in the Brush-size. In this Case you have the Brush-Size 95.) After that draw over the mouth-part. You’ll see that the mouth fades away. Repeat this step a couple of times. It’s important to choose other parts of the face to pic the skin off. If you choose the same part every time the face will get a very monoton style. That doesn’t look very realistic! Also note that you can switch the Brush Size, the Opacity and the Flow. Just play around with the settings and you will see what I’m talking about.
