Oh wow Craig! That looks so moody! I love it!
well, good i liked the original, but just wanted to see if i could punch it up a bit.

am glad your music and stuff is going well! i mean, really. all this graphic work is actually my second love. i grew up in choirs and theatre. but after school i could never get past the stage fright to sing in public. it's really quite odd. i have a good voice and i know i do, but put me on a stage and ask me to sing and i just sort of lock up. quite frustrating. i used to write a bit, but that was back when i had my Amiga and some great software. never found anything for the pc i like. at any rate, all this was to say, i'm glad you're doing your love and doing well at it and having fun. the voice-overs sound like great fun

deadants,

Thanks for having a go.

What brush did you use in Liquify?
I think I am having a hard time knowing exactly what brush to use. I used the Forward Warp Tool and you can see my ridiculous result! LOL

Is there a decent general Liquify tutorial out there in the cyberworld? I'd love a link if anyone knows of one. This is a tool I have not had much practice using.

Craig- you mentioned the use of a Mesh. I see that feature here in Liquify, but it asks to load in a mesh. What exactly is a mesh in this reference? Is it the 'settings' used.

the mesh in the mesh warp tool is just that, a mesh. see the attached picture. you move those dots around to create the warp under that area. as you move them around you can see the changes instantly as a preview. to finalize it you hit the apply button up top. it's quick and it's simple and can all be undone very easily. you can move the points in the mesh as many times as you want and the preview changes instantly each time.

the 2nd image is just another attempt, only with slightly fuller lips. also done the same way as the first.

it's a great tool, especially for cariacatures and such.

Wow- that is indeed a handy feature. I have PSP 8... maybe I'll open this image up in there and fiddle around.
How do I access the 'mesh warp tool' in PSP?

Ok I found it.
Now for the newbie PSP question. How do I put a selection in a new layer.
When I used the freehand selection tool to select the lips and then went > Edit/copy > Edit/copy> paste as a new layer
it put the lips in the middle of the head of the image
Is that how PSP works or is there a better way to make a new selection and put it on a seperate layer?

Also, how small can you make the mesh? Mine is stuck at 31 by 31

I used a soft round 17 pixels brush.

Tere are a few tutorials for the liquify tool that I found doing a google search. Here's a video tutorial. I'm not sure it's any help though.

Great job cyber cat!

I did indeed use a small brush.
What tool should I have used? There are several to choose from... I now know BLOAT doesn't work! LOL

Is that ctrl+j in Paint Shop Pro 8?
