Liquify my love

Friday, April 25, 2008

Just a real quick note, a lot of people have been asking what tool in Photoshop I used to smudge parts around without losing clarity and blurring the whole image. Answer to that is Liquify with a brush density of about 25. If you work a little higher resolution than your final image no detail is lost. Cheers!

you have something unique when it comes to creativity and i love your skills.

Your work is great!! I think that you could make little posts explaining in very sort way how to do some of the effects you use.

This is a good example: liquify, it will be great if you could post a couple of images: before and after.
Of course, I think that your intention is not to make a complete tutorial in your blog, but maybe with little tips like this you will get (even more) more traffic here..

Greetings and congratulations

Do you have any pointers for people who use PS Elements? Or any good referance guides? Thanks!!!

Have you thought of creating tutorials?

I know I would certainly pay to get a DVD with that first hour of work played and narrated in real time.

Your techniques are unbelievable!

Hello Pixeloo!
I really love your work, and I know you're probably too busy to do requests, but could you possibly do Rembrant's "Le déjeuner des canotiers"? It's my favourite painting and I'd love to see it done photorealistically. It's a lot of work, but it'd be worth it. :)

You've demonstrated some truly unreal talent, but I'd hate to see you get pigeonholed into "untooning". What else can you do?

Can you please tell us a bit about yourself? I would be very surprised to hear if this kind of work is not your fulltime job.

I've done some photoshop but mostly basic stuff before so I was interested in giving this a shot, sadly my photoshop (a dinosaur by now, photoshop 6.0) doesn't seem to offer any way to show the layers beneath the one you are liquifying

Very cool blog - I enjoy your work!

From the number of comments that you have received, I'm guessing you won't be able to respond to too many of them but if you do, I wonder if you could recommend a less expensive software than Adobe Photoshop? I'm used to watercolor and ink prices!

Is photoshop cs3 extended better than photoshop cs3?

Cool stuff here!

vanrensalier: give gimp a try (www.gimp.org)

It's free, and I'm guessing if you're not familiar with Photoshop already you'll probably have an easier time learning it than the rest of us.
