Quick body reshape, liposuction and breast augmentationMay 19, 2011 # Beginner Tutorials, Brushes, Intermediate Tutorials # 4 Comments
We have shown how to make someone look thin, but what if the problem is not calling for such drastic measures but rather for some gentle body re-sculpting? Thats what you will learn through this tutorial; how to reshape a body figure. This technique creates a more subtle effect, which may be a better idea for your public photos. You can do this either with the smudge tool or the liquify tools, we prefer the liquify tool because the smudge tool takes away some of the quality of the original picture.
Our model in this case doesnt really need a liposuction but we will operate on her anyway for the shake of this tutorial.
Once you open your image on photoshop reach for your Liquify filter. You will find this under the Filter menu->Liquify.
Pick the Forward Warp Tool, thats the little hand tool on the top left.
Next we identify the area we want to reshape and gently click and push inwards. In the image below we are re-shaping the waste. This process requires stable hand and a bit of artistic touch. If you overdo it and the figure looks fake just hit ctrl+z and retry.
Repeat on the other side of the waste so it looks symmetric.
Next we will augment the model's buttocks. We will use again the Warp Tool but a different technique. Instead of pushing from outside the body inwards we will click and drag from inside the body outwards. Its a really handy tool and it contributes hugely to this being a quick edit.
Click and drag, click and drag, slow moves till your get the desired result, dont be afraid to experiment.
Next we will augment the model's breasts. Reach for the Bloat tool.
With gentle strokes, click and drag around the breast area, do this from the centre to get a more natural result.
Repeat on the other breast and you are done. Hope you have fun trying this tut.
