How to Shape a Screaming Face in Photoshop
Alright today I'm going to show you how you can make your mouth look like it’s screaming and your mouth is like really large and it’s coming down kind of far out. So I got a light here I’m just putting it towards the wall and I’ll take a picture of myself screaming and then we’re going to go to the computer and mess it up. I need to be in an angle because I don’t want the light is pointing at I'm here right now so alright that looks good so let’s go to the computer.
Okay, so I just messed around with it and this was the result that I got. I want to show you some other ones though, you can do different things with this. You can make it say your mouth is just covering your entire head. There's another example, it’s kind of similar to the one I just did. There's another one. He’s pretty good looking, and there's another one. So what you do, we’re going to mess around with this right now. I'm going to go back to the original picture get rid of these. Okay and so here is the original picture. Now what you want to do is you want to duplicate the layers so drag it down to that page.
And now what you want to do, with this particular one I'm going to make the mouth cover the entire face and I'm going to forget about the chin going down like I did last time. But if you wanted that effect you can still use the same concept that I'm going to show you right now. So we got the layer, so we’re going to select the mouth and then we’re going to go -- there's two ways you can do this, you can go to image go to edit content to our scale and then scale it up. We’re just going to wait, it’s calculating. Okay, so then you would just drag it over after it’s done calculating. Anyway, just apply it, okay well that was quick. So then what we got to do is you got to select the inverse of that delete everything so now as you can see on this layer all that exists is the mouth.
So now you want to move this over and now you just mask out the area you don’t want so you create a mask down here on this layer you select a black brush make it soft and just erase and make sure your opacity is on a 100% and you erase the stuff you don’t want, just like that. Yeah I could go with that, okay. Pretty handsome guy, if the lips come out weird you can always just mask them out to make them look normal again. Sometimes they get really stretched out. So there's one way you do it. The other way you can do it is go back to the original picture, you still duplicate the layer but then you just use a regular resizing of the mouth, so just select the mouth. Push control T and then just drag it up and resize it.
Just like that. You can get you know different results for different things, just try both and see what you like and then you just mask it out and see what it looks like. So there you get the concept that one’s a little bit messy but yeah. So that’s about it. You could also just do this with the different body parts like you can make your tongue like go all the way down or something very grotesque just like that. So yeah if you want to see more tutorials on this and on trick photography in general go to photoextremist.com. See you later.
