This week’s Pixel Playground technique will teach you how to use the Puppet Warp feature in Adobe Photoshop to reshape part of a body.
Have you ever wanted to sculpt a body to remove some love handles, or just trim up your subject in general? This week Bert Monroy gives you a chance by showing how to use the Puppet Warp tool in Photoshop.
To begin, you’ll need to isolate your subject by making a selection and copying it to a new layer. From there, open the Puppet Warp dialog box and begin to pin down the areas that you want to move. Finally, with careful precision you’re able to move parts of the Puppet Warp mesh and transform the shape of your subject—like magic.
Be sure to check back next week for a new Pixel Playground technique!
