Wednesday Photoshop Experiment - Photo to CG.
Ever wonder what you would look like as an anime or game character? I can help you with that. I created this while playing around with an old image in Photoshop. Move your mouse over the image to see the before:
I have found there is a very fine line when trying to change the shape or size of someone's eyes. While a less realistic,"big eyed" look is possible, experiments have proven that making the eyes significantly larger only works well on images that have been shot with this effect in mind. With this image, I made changes to the shape of the mouth and nose to give the effect rather than mess with the integrity of the eyes, and I definitely prefer the result.
Of course the work done to this image was not just on the overall face shape. I put a lot of work into producing a more "CG" feel to the image. I call it the "Final Fantasy" effect as the idea was to create something that felt more like anime or video game art.
