Avatar, Photoshop and Warp Tool

I used Digibody’s Caricature Maker (see here) to make this picture., opened here in Photoshop  cs2.


Open a A4 page with 120 pixel/inch and drag in. Scale to a greater size.


Select the head with the square selection tool and now use the warp tool.

I ‘warped’ to get the above result. You do the same untill you see what you like.


I added a local warp by selecting the mouth and added the body, simply drawing with the mouse.

Now, using the Paint Bucket Tool, I put in flat colors as I liked them. You do the same with your preferences.
