I am not sure I know how to do what you tell me to do.

I actually found this forum (and I really like it) looking for a way to do this effect, but I will definately stick around to learn more. It's just that I lack a lot of photoshop basics, and so while I oooooooh and ahhhhhhhh at all that I see here, I know that I really need to get to the basics. However, I must say, this forum has been quite an incentive to finally LEARN them!

Just a small background, I wanted to make a shopping page, and I wanted to have a cartoon image of myself (and my children will have their own corner) and that is why I wanted to do the cartoon. Here is the page, a work in progress, but the cartoon is close to what I was looking for. » HERE

So thanks to everyone for giving me the know how!

WOW, that is really cool!

The before and after images are amazing! I would never have known how to do this. I will definitely have to give this a try.

Nice work!

Tracy

Good Tip

Sorry I have no image to post but I do have a quick tip.

Often times, especially in political cartoons, prominent features are often exaggerated in order to make the cartoon stand out and make the faces recognizable. This is important especially since a move from a photograph to a cartoon by it's very nature most often involves loss of detail and definition in the subject. By exaggerating the features this loss of definition is compensated.

Photoshop's liquify tool is an excellent way of making prominent features even more so before "converting" the image to a cartoon. Obviously this doesn't apply to all types of cartoons and need not be done if it's not the desired effect but it's a nice way emphasize the character of the person in the image while reducing the details of the photo.

Simply take the photo into the liquify mode and strech the prominent features until they look cartoonish. Remember to take your cues from the person's actual features. For esample, if the person has big eyes make them even bigger. If they have a small nose make it even smaller. It's like enhacing the lighting of a photo by following the existing shadows/highlights.

After "converting" the photo into a cartoon you'll be surprised at how much "pop" your image will have.

Just my 2 cents.

Sukku,
Nice cartoon effect! I believe this can also be achieved in Photoshop by using the liquify filter.

Cyber Cat,
Wonderful Results! You’ve captured just the right amount of detail. The clothing folds and the detail in the eyes and hair really make the image work. You may want to add just a bit of a line to help define the right arm from the right leg though –now it just blends in.

Goose443,
Nice tip for creating caricatures.

Dbuckle,

Nice results! You may want to experiment with the Cutout Filter settings to capture more detail in your image. I believe you need a bit more detail in the face to help it read clearer. This was done quickly using only the Cutout Filter in Photoshop (Filters>Artistic>Cutout).

First I duplicated the original image twice. Named one “Simplify” and the other “Detail”.

On the Simplify Layer I ran Cutout at:
Number of Levels 8
Edge Simplicity 5
Edge Fidelity 3

On the Detail layer (place under Simplify Layer) I ran Cutout at:
Number of Levels 7
Edge Simplicity 3
Edge Fidelity 3

Next I created a Layer Mask on the Simplify layer and painted back in some detail in the face, hair and zipper. You could also use the eraser, but the Layer Mask gives you more flexibility as you can always paint in or out detail.

Also you don’t have to apply the Cutout Filter to your entire image. You can always use the lasso tool to select sections and apply the filter at different levels to different areas of an image. This way you can keep more detail in some areas, while simplifying others.

I've attached your image to show the difference...
