HOW TO CREATE A CARTOON CHARACTER WITH PHOTOMANIPULATION & RETOUCHING

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.

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 😉
