Learn how to add pins to artwork for distortion.
- [Voiceover] So I have this file…that I've created for the purpose of this movie.…If you have access to this, then you'll be…welcome to work along with it.…Of course, you could use any of your own artwork as well.…Here's the scenario. My art director or client…has come along to me and said, "Do you know what?…I'm kind of not happy with the pose of that dragon.…I'd like his head to be more central.…And do something with the wings,…they're a bit too symmetrical."…So I'm going to fix that.…
First of all, I'm going to pop to my layers…and I have the baby dragon here on its own layer.…I'm also going to unlock the sign as well,…because I'll use that too.…And I'll select the dragon baby…and then reopen my properties panel.…So what I need to do here is place some pins.…You need at least three to make this work,…and I'll get the puppet warp tool here from the toolbox,…and then I'll come along and click.…And you'll notice straight away,…it gets covered in a load of polygons.…
It draws a mesh over it pretty much…the same way as it would in Photoshop.…
