Neve I like your results. By widening the image, you changed the look from a horse to a pony. In fact, the graphics remind me of the children’s toy “My Little Pony.” I’d have to say that the pink one is my favorite of the two. I also like the touch of the added sparkle to the eye. Nicely done!

FrannyMae,

Thanks for sharing your technique! It's always fun to learn a new one.

Your image has a very nice arty look to it. In fact, it reminds me of one of those paint-by-numbers kit you get from a craft store. I especially like the bright colors! Nicely done!

Thanks for the nice feedback everyone! T Paul, I had to laugh when you said it looked like a paint-by-numbers kits! It reminds me a lot of the kits where the background is black velvet and you fill in the white spaces with markers-my son loves those things. I've never tried it on a picture with more subtle coloring, but would like to see the result. I love all the different approaches everyone has taken! Cheers!

Thank you for kind comments T Paul. I thought perhaps this was a bit childish for this particular thread with so many wonderful more adult results but with 5 granchildren...I just couldn't resist my wee ponies! Franny Mae, I'm still sitting here with your notes for your result and determined to find time tomorrow to try it out! Thanks again and to everyone else for sharing so much. Excellent thread and looking forward to seeing even more wonderful results.

More Cartoon Art

I thought I would post an image of my husband that I turned into a cartoon...after some alterations! He needed a new head, for one thing! LOL! I also ditched the Christmas tree. I love doing this kind of picture!

It's raining, tv sucks, what better thing to do than messing with PS. My amateurish way:
1. duplicate layer
2. create new layer/lasso face/edit>fill color (red)
3. create new layer/lasso eyes/edit>fill color (black)
4. merged layers
5. edit>stroke>8 pix
6. create new layer for base>gradient
7. Got Pig1
8. Accidentally set face layer blend to "difference", got pig2. Like this one better for its haunting effect. It is coming back to get you!

Note: the original pig head foto was taken from a supermarket.

Thanks for the technique TPaul. I had fun with this one. Will have to work some more with it. Decided to try it on my kitty Grizzle. I had trouble with the eyes though. Any ideas to improve the look? I used clipping paths to select the different colored areas. I used the freeform pen tool which was a bit difficult. I think next time I might try the lasso tool instead. I also think it's time to hook up my old tablet. This stuff sure is hard with a mouse!!

This is a fun thread! I have a pic I've been wanting to do this kind of effect on, but wasn't sure of where to begin...and now thanks to all the tips & techniques shared here, I know!

I'm definitely going to have to install my tablet on my home computer, I'm far too shaky to do a good outline with a mouse!

I'll post results when I get to try it...

Franny,
Excellent results and the dot fill further emphasized the cartoon appearance! Now you just need to print it on some transfer paper and apply it to a t-shirt!

Thomasfoo,
Rainy days are great for playing! Nice use of the gradient and stroke.

Amanda,
Nice results especially by using a mouse! The problem with the eyes is that you didn’t fully define them. Try completing the outline of the eye and don’t forget the pupil. Also try adding a line to help define the neck from the body. Then add a few whiskers for the finishing touch!

Malia01us,
Looking forward to seeing your results!

Amanda,

Hear is an example of what I mean by outling the eyes more and defining the chin area....

This is a rough example done with the lasso tool and the mouse
