Create a retro comic style girl using Photoshop

We will turn a picture of a girl into a stylish looking comic like poster with the use of Photoshop filters. Anyone can do it, have a go!

1.
 

Open a picture of a girl.

Click here to download photo of a girl with tattoos used in this tutorial.

 
 
2.
 

Choose Quick Selection Tool.

Or which ever selection tool you feel more comfortable with.

 
 
3.
 

Make a selection of the girl (see picture).

We need to deselect the two empty spaces between girl's arm and body ...

 
 
4.
 

Click the Substract from selection button (see picture).

 
 
5.
 

And deselect the empty spaces (see picture).

 
 
6.
 

In the menu click Select and choose Inverse to inverse the selection.

In the menu click Select and choose Refine Edge...

Choose the same settings as I did and click OK.


 
 
7.
 

Now right click the background layer and choose Layer From Background then click OK.

 
 
8.
 

Create a new layer.

Press D and then X to set the white foreground color and press Alt + D to fill the layer with white color.


 
 
9.
 

Click and drag the new layer under the girl layer (see picture)

 
 
10.
 

Choose an orange foreground color (see picture).

 
 
11.
 

Choose the Gradient Tool.

 
 
12.
 

Choose the Foreground to Background gradient and click the Radial Gradient button (see picture).

Just click the gradient to select the foreground to background gradient.

 
 
13.
 

Now click and drag your mouse form the center of document to the edge to apply the gradient (see picture).

You can do that as many times as you like, just be sure you have the white layer selected.

 
 
14.
 

In the menu click Layer and choose Merge Visible (Shift + Ctrl + E for a keyboard shortcut).

Press Ctrl + J to duplicate the layer.

 
 
15.
 

In the menu click Filter, Artistic and choose Cutout...

Choose the same same settings as I did and click OK.

If you're using a different picture, choosing the same settings might not bring the proper result, just experiment with the settings.

Click OK.

 
 
16.
 

Choose Overlay for a blending mode.

 
 
17.
 

This is how it should look like by now.

 
 
18.
 

Press Ctrl + J to duplicate the layer.

In the menu click Filter, Other and choose High Pass...

Set the radius to about 3.9 pixels and click OK.

 
 
19.
 

Choose the middle layer (see picture).

 
 
20.
 

In the menu click Image, Adjustments and click Black and White...

Adjust the Reds and Yellows as I did and click OK.

Click OK.

 
 
21.
 

Now set the opacity of the middle layer to 70%.

 
 
22.
 

And that is all, not much work for a nice effect like this, agreed?
