The silhouette effective an imageÂ looks more like a graphic than a dozen actual photograph and can be pretty cool to use
depending on what you want to do. Pretty simple affect you soÂ or get started so I have his picture here have a military helicopterÂ silhouetted by the SunÂ a great photograph. But I wanna kinda make it look like it’s aÂ more of an illustration or graphic illustration than anything elseÂ which is pretty easy stuff to do so in order to isolate this.
So I’m gonna go toÂ image Â and I’m gonna go to adjustments and click on thresholdÂ and you’ll notice that all of the dark elements or what are what showing and theÂ later elements are disappearing I want it just that so none of the dark andÂ want to try except for the helicopter.Â I do wanna be get a little bit more detail of the helicopterÂ ever go that works okay. We got some other stuff over there can be veryÂ easily erase itÂ press OK go ahead and grab a research toolÂ make it nice and big like really bigÂ and whoops conscription homes thatÂ almost kinda weird.
So Center for going back on talk back to the way they need to beÂ there we go now are in business because my background was that yellow instead ofÂ black and white soÂ always make sure that the p defaults are setÂ so now that I have that I’m gonna grab my magic Wand tool. So I can make Â selection get rid ofÂ the background concept art 20 going to selectÂ all the way around it and press communicant relaxÂ to delete it.
Now I want to add a new layerÂ and I want to put it behind my back row but I can’t do that at the momentÂ because the background is not considered a layer so double click on thatÂ call air 0 everyone. Now it is aware and nowÂ we can move it behind this layer what we want to do is add a gradient. But before we do that I want to change my foreground color to whiteÂ and change my background color to a kinda orangesÂ sunset looking color so the actual color is going to beÂ FF aÂ 8 00 there. We goÂ press OK and now we’re going to apply the gradient to the layerÂ and what we want to do is make it so why is on topÂ and oranges bottle course is not showing upÂ because to match one told not to its job soÂ go ahead and eggs at it now and there we go let’s go ahead and try that timeÂ great into again.
See if we can get a little bit more yellow along with the whiteÂ and you can keep applying it so it looks really coolÂ now the last thing we want to do is the raceÂ little areas a white in the under-card to the chopperÂ cell. When you set up your Acer make sure the motors on pencil the waiters noblerÂ air passages that 100 percent and get the impression nice and smallÂ and then just start erasing make sure course that your layers selectedÂ and of courseÂ area and be very very careful about how you do itÂ down to the pics of.
You have toÂ now strangest get that in thereÂ tell biggerÂ not a big deal it’s not perfect in the cockpitÂ almost done hereÂ kinda cool seeing it this morning can actually see the actual pixels. When you get that smallÂ you realize that all they are are just a bunch of little dots of colorÂ so it’s more of a digital painting that photograph. And very outgoing look at the final productÂ and there you go you can at all kinds of other images too if you wanted toÂ say I want to duplicate this guy and now I have two choppersÂ and duplicate again. Now I have three choppersÂ so it’s really easy to do that its pretty simple stuffÂ om.
If you ever have any questions regarding how to do thisÂ please just send me an email and I’ll be happy to help you with how to out how toÂ apply thisÂ not just with helicopters but with whatever you want.
