The idea is to comicallyexaggerate particular features to create a humorous representation of that person.Adobe Photoshop's transform, warp, and liquify features are perfect for creatingcaricatures from a photographic portrait. This tutorial is part of a larger set ofinstructions found in the Tuts+ course, Fluid Photo Manipulation: Transform, Warp,and Liquify.</p><p>https://design.tutsplus.com/courses/fluid-photo-manipulation-transform-warp-and-liquifyhttp://pdfcrowd.com/html-to-pdf-api/?ref=pdfhttp://pdfcrowd.com/customize/http://pdfcrowd.com/redirect/?url=http%3a%2f%2fdesign.tutsplus.com%2ftutorials%2fhow-to-create-a-photo-caricature-in-adobe-photoshop--cms-22866&amp;id=ma-150323122900-17f49db8http://pdfcrowd.com</p></li><li><p>pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer?

Try out the HTML to PDF API</p><p>1. Basic Photo Preparation</p><p>The essential technique for creating a caricature is to find elements that are alreadynaturally pronounced, and exaggerate them to a comical degree. In our starterphoto here, the young man's jaw line is rather large, and his smile is very prominent.The horn-rimmed glasses are noticeable and the hairline looks like it's beginning torecede. These are all aspects of his portrait we can have fun with.</p><p>http://pdfcrowd.com/html-to-pdf-api/?ref=pdfhttp://pdfcrowd.com/customize/http://pdfcrowd.com/redirect/?url=http%3a%2f%2fdesign.tutsplus.com%2ftutorials%2fhow-to-create-a-photo-caricature-in-adobe-photoshop--cms-22866&amp;id=ma-150323122900-17f49db8http://pdfcrowd.com</p></li><li><p>pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer?

Try out the HTML to PDF API</p><p>Step 1The solid white background of the portrait makes it easy to extract the figure fromthe background. Use the selection technique of your choiceI used the QuickSelection Tool (W) to craft the selectionand then go to Layer &gt; New &gt; Layer ViaCopy (Control-J) to create a cutout layer of the man.</p><p>http://pdfcrowd.com/html-to-pdf-api/?ref=pdfhttp://pdfcrowd.com/customize/http://pdfcrowd.com/redirect/?url=http%3a%2f%2fdesign.tutsplus.com%2ftutorials%2fhow-to-create-a-photo-caricature-in-adobe-photoshop--cms-22866&amp;id=ma-150323122900-17f49db8http://pdfcrowd.com</p></li><li><p>pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer?

Try out the HTML to PDF API</p><p>Step 3Just to keep things as flexible as possible, lets transform each layer into a SmartObject. Grab each layer individually and go to Layer &gt; Smart Objects &gt; Convertto Smart Object.</p><p>http://pdfcrowd.com/html-to-pdf-api/?ref=pdfhttp://pdfcrowd.com/customize/http://pdfcrowd.com/redirect/?url=http%3a%2f%2fdesign.tutsplus.com%2ftutorials%2fhow-to-create-a-photo-caricature-in-adobe-photoshop--cms-22866&amp;id=ma-150323122900-17f49db8http://pdfcrowd.com</p></li><li><p>pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API</p><p>2. Transform and Warp</p><p>Now that the different features are all on their own layer, we can begin transformingthem into an exaggerated caricature. Use the flexibility of the Smart Objects to workwith different size combinations to get a humorous effect.</p><p>http://pdfcrowd.com/html-to-pdf-api/?ref=pdfhttp://pdfcrowd.com/customize/http://pdfcrowd.com/redirect/?url=http%3a%2f%2fdesign.tutsplus.com%2ftutorials%2fhow-to-create-a-photo-caricature-in-adobe-photoshop--cms-22866&amp;id=ma-150323122900-17f49db8http://pdfcrowd.com</p></li><li><p>pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API</p><p>Step 1A common caricature technique is to make the head extremely large in proportion tothe body. To accomplish this, shrink the body layer down significantly with Edit &gt;Free Transform.</p><p>http://pdfcrowd.com/html-to-pdf-api/?ref=pdfhttp://pdfcrowd.com/customize/http://pdfcrowd.com/redirect/?url=http%3a%2f%2fdesign.tutsplus.com%2ftutorials%2fhow-to-create-a-photo-caricature-in-adobe-photoshop--cms-22866&amp;id=ma-150323122900-17f49db8http://pdfcrowd.com</p></li><li><p>pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API</p><p>Step 2Use Edit &gt; Transform &gt; Warp to begin shaping the head layer. Fit the neck into theneckline of the shirt and inflate the top of the head. The goal of this step is just toestablish the basic shape of the head, and that serves as a foundation for the otherlayers to build on.</p><p>http://pdfcrowd.com/html-to-pdf-api/?ref=pdfhttp://pdfcrowd.com/customize/http://pdfcrowd.com/redirect/?url=http%3a%2f%2fdesign.tutsplus.com%2ftutorials%2fhow-to-create-a-photo-caricature-in-adobe-photoshop--cms-22866&amp;id=ma-150323122900-17f49db8http://pdfcrowd.com</p></li><li><p>pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer?
