Creating Characters by using an EASY masking technique

You can have almost instant CUSTOMIZED characters for any project. Done minimally for those that are not Photoshop friendly

 

Gather your image....any photo, image, cartoon or even a character sold by Glenn Cuneo or SadDuck. Place on canvas. Then use a shape element to "MASK" where you want to customize the look. Size for basic coverage.Export as a plain.png. Now use an image editor and just remove/ erase the shape.. Export from the editor. Place back on canvas. Now find the picture you want to change to. Place on canvas locate it by sending back..

 

This was an existing character that Glenn had shown off. So I took it and his photo a did a quick change.

Think about it....wit a little planning and your cell phone you could have GREAT results. Find the image you want....match the pose. With a plain drape around your neck.......an image editor handy ........you'd be good to go.

 

Right pose? Remove head  by masking or cropping and replace.

 

Put your child's face on a ballet dancer or fireman. Encourage them to make a story up. Write it down or tape.
