Tutorial | Cartoon You

Posted by

I decided to make a easy tutorial to turn any photo into a cartoon, or comic style image.

I used Photoshop CS6, but I’m pretty sure the steps are similar in most recent pS editions.

1.  Open an image

File>Open>choose the image

close self portrait

2.  Convert it to Black and White

Image>Adjustments>Black and White>make any customizations you would like within the menu

3.  Use the Posterize function

Images>Adjustment>Posterize>3 levels

close self portrait3

4.  Make it an Outline Only

Filter>Filter Gallery>Stylize>Glowing Edges

close self portrait4

5. Invert so you can see what you made!

6.  Color that thing in!

Markers, crayons, paint or digital paint…
