Without Face: Photoshop Cheating

Hey, are you interesting on cheating methods in Photoshop? If yes then I’ll show u how to create one interesting effect with human face. I’m going to cover almost all the face with plain skin. This lesson is more suitable for those users who have some experience with Photoshop.

Let’s start! In the beginning you should find the picture of a human face to experiment with. I prefer to use this one. Also feel free to use your own pictures. Open up the file and start covering mouth with skin. Get out the Lasso Tool to create selection as shown on my picture below:

Then press Ctrl+J to duplicate selected area on the new layer and move it up a little bit with Move Tool.

After that select the Eraser Tool and the soft round brush to remove borders clearness for current layer. Try to get the same result as on my picture, which you can see below.

Ok, now use the Brush Tool (Brush: 150 px, Range: Midtones: Exposure : 20%) to make skin darken a slightly.

Merge current layer with previous one. Now, select the Clone Stamp Tool (Brush: 40 px, Opacity: 50%) and hold down the Alt key — the cursor will change to a target. Click the point you wish to use as a sampling point. This will be used as the reference point for cloning. Click and draw where you want the cloned image to appear. As you draw, a cross will appear on the original image while a corresponding circle appears where you are drawing.

Time to process the nostrils. On this step u don’t need to duplicate skin area again to hide the nostrils, it will be much easer to use only Clone Stamp Tool. Use the soft round brush about 25 pixels to do it neatly.

    That method works, but it is tedious, if you wanted to do quick work of that, simply use the healing brush on content aware and draw over major features. Give it a try, and tell me what you think?
