Heres a pic I did a while ago. Its one of my favourites and I wish I kept the PS files so I could change it for dubious decisions!



Also, heres a picture that Clyde posed for me while I was working on PS.

Hamish McConnor is Clydes real name.

I agree. I've been messing around with photoshop the last week or two, might post some of my stuff here soon.

How many lads on here can do anything on photoshop? Get some SOTW going for the upcoming UFC main events or something.

After the shite attempt at that oldschool rap poster everyone had in my sig, I decided to play around with these Topaz Labs plugins which are pretty fking awesome. Here's my newest one. I gifed it with the original so you can see the difference.



Now I burst out laughing at that teacher actually forcing me to spend all that time cutting and shit in Illustrator for my comic when I could have used this technique and got it done in 20 seconds.

I haven't cut images in almost a year.

Some of the last ones I did.















I cut these cuz I suck @ making artistic stuff, hoping someone would be able to make a decent ava or sig or something.


Hard work is the only real PED.

@Trix , I HATE cutting. So boring and I always sucked at it. I do it like you, but if you're trying to cut "well" you have to use a solid brush over a soft brush. I use soft as well because it's easier to make small mistakes, but on things like PSDDreams you'd probably never find a soft cut image.

I just use the paths tool. Then feather the edges with edge select, shrink via x pixels, invert select to get the edges & gaussian blur for some anti aliasing like effect...

Pro tip for you both.

If you are cutting from a light or dark background you can use the blending options to do it in like 5 seconds.

Infact there are loads of techniques you can use to cut an image from a background, the magic wand and lasso tools are just a few of the more popular.
