Comic Book Effect

I have made another tutorial, this will give your pics a bit of a comicbook drawn effect.

Must have good knowledge of your graphics program.

Go from this to this

You can use this on icons, headers, or whatever you want. I have made a header for this tutorial. I use PhotoImpact, but if you have knowledge of your program, I know it will translate.

First, I take my image
this one I am going to use

Duplicate it, and use your Threshold set at about 90. This setting will depend on your original image of course. I set it enough to get the strands of hair and little details. Here is my Threshold layer.

Set the Threshold layer at Luminosity

This is what I have with both layers

Now, duplicate your base image again, and set the Threshold a little higher this time, I set mine at 150. Mine looks like this

Now, set this layer at Lighten

I have this now

Duplicate your first Threshold layer, and set it to Softlight

I have this now

Now duplicate your base layer and set it to Colorize or Hue Only

Then, take a dotted texture, You can use this one and set it at Luminosity at Opacity 83.

Finally. :)

Here is one way I did it

And another way with my own texture

I used this texture for the final outcome

If you want to use any of my creations, please do not hotlink.

Hope this was helpful. :)
