Mask a Caricature Against a New Background

2014-06-24-DT

Last week Deke showed you how to turn a portrait into a crazy carnival-style caricature with Photoshop. This week, he’ll show you how to mask that caricature onto a more dramatic background using the Color Range command, Quick Mask mode, and a layer mask.

The follow-up movie in the lynda.com library shows how to make your caricature even more dramatic with some shading and sharpening.

Watch the free video to get started. Then come back next week for another dose of Deke’s Techniques, which will feature Illustrator and a Mobius strip—the mathematically magical loop with two sides but only one surface.
