Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Retouching the toy, part of Creating Dreamscapes in Photoshop: 2.
So looking at our toy, we see that there's certain parts that really make it …look like a toy. Especially these separated areas right in …here. And there's a seam going right down the …middle. So let's go in there and look at that …seam. See there's that very obvious seam, that …you can see it right through there. And there's the seams of the arms. …So those are things that we need to get rid of, and then this big heavy seam …here. Now, in these cases here, we don't mind a …little bit of a seam showing. Same thing with the arm, but not as …distinct as it is now. So what we're going to do is go in here …and start doing a little retouching. Now, it's not as hard as it sounds, it's …just a question of lessening the effects that we see in here.…
Like right there. There's a seam in the plastic pieces. …So I'm going to use my Clone tool, throughout for this whole process. …Make the brush a little smaller, like that, and were going to bring the opacity …up quite a bit real close, not full 100% because I like to build things up slowly. …
