HOW TO CREATE A CARTOON CHARACTER WITH PHOTOMANIPULATION & RETOUCHING

TRANSFORMING PHOTOS OF REAL PEOPLE INTO CARICATURES

Photomanipulation + Retouching + Color Grading Tutorial

We will be covering a lot of things in this massive tutorial. You will learn step by step how you can create any cartoon character you imagine using photomanipulation, retouching and color grading techniques. With only Photoshop and stock photos (or your own) you can create a unique caricature that can be a logo, a mascot for a product, a character in an ad, etc.. You can of course use the same techniques explained in this tutorial, in a more subtle way, to spice up your portraits or images.

This tutorial has a massive 89 steps detailing the entire process to achieve the image above and don’t worry, all my tutorials can be done by anyone who has basic knowledge of Photoshop. Unlike other tutorials you’ll sometimes see out there, you don’t need to be a skilled digital painter to achieve the same results I get here — as I’m not a good digital painter myself ;)

TAKE YOUR SKILLS TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Hi, my name is Patrick Lavigne and I’m a professional graphic artist, photo editor, colorist (photo & video) and photographer.

My main goal with this site is to teach you how you can create better photos by spending as little money as possible and it all starts with photo editing.

No, you don’t need a $3000 camera or a $1500 lens to take professional quality photos. In fact, the difference you will notice between a photo taken with an entry level DSLR camera + the kit lens and the same photo taken with the Canon 5D Mark IV for example is minimal compare to the difference you’ll notice between one photo expertly edited in Photoshop and the same that wasn’t. If you already have Photoshop, (you can download the free trial for 7 days btw) you can improve your photos dramatically by learning how to properly color correct and color grade.

Then, you can take your photos to an whole new level if you can master the art of what we call photomanipulation, compositing and retouching. By mastering those techniques, you will be able to turn your photos into digital art!

Some sites are selling their tutorials $25+ a piece, at only $5 per tutorial, I could perhaps charge $100+ for all of them, but I want to give you a MUCH better deal than that! When you join this site, you pay a one-time fee of $49 $39 (Limited Time Offer) for a Lifetime Membership which gives you access to ALL tutorials. As I add more tutorials, the price will go up accordingly — by securing your lifetime membership now, you will have access to all the future tutorials absolutely FREE!!

All source images for the tutorials are supplied to you so you’ll be able to do exactly what I did. The tutorials were all done using Photoshop CS5 or Photoshop CC but as long as you have version CS5 or newer, you’re fine! While a lot can be done with CS3/CS4, you will be limited when doing my tutorials. If you want to try out a more recent version, Adobe offers a Free 7-day trial. As for Photoshop Elements, it is definitely not recommended here as you’ll probably feel like you’re in an alternate universe following my tutorials! Happened a few times!

If you are on this website and have read until this point, it’s because you are a motivated artist that wants to improve and you realize that to fully unleash your talent, you need the technical knowledge you might be missing to fully express it.

Learning all the ways you can edit your photos and images is like someone that finally learns the proper drawing techniques. Before, the person was making interesting doodles, now he/she’s creating works of art. The talent was there but it was not fully utilized. And it’s the same thing with digital art and photo editing, once you learn the proper methods, you then unleash the creativity in you that couldn’t fully be expressed before.

What you’ll learn on this site is just the start, a glimpse of what’s possible for you to achieve. By joining this site and practicing what I’ll teach you, I firmly believe that you too can become a photo/image editing expert. You may doubt your potential at first but I guarantee you that after surprising yourself a few times with better than expected results, your confidence will grow and you will be believing in your true potential.

It’s important to have goals and that’s why you are here, if it’s career goals (photography, digital artist), to paraphrase the great Jim Rohn, get the skills, take the classes, be more valuable. If it’s personal goals (hobby), push yourself, get the knowledge and accomplish what you want to accomplish.

If for any reasons you are not completely satisfied with my training tutorials, I’m offering you a 60-day, no questions asked, money back guarantee:

If you don’t think LearnPhotoEditing is worth it, simply drop me an email — and you’ll get all your money back instantly.

So don’t wait, get the knowledge and start creating stunning images today by becoming a member of LearnPhotoEditing.net!!
