Turning People into Cartoons
The easiet and most efficient way to immediately turn someone into a cartoon has got to be the poster edges effect. For a more comic art feel you will have to follow a lot more steps. This is a picture of Kelly Clarkson….a nice clear picture with a white background works well
Then to make her cartooned you open her up in photoshop then go to Filter, Artistic and Poster Edges. Then adjust the brightness and contrast to define it a bit – approximately 13 for brightness and 30 for contrast. Change it until you get the desired effect.
To stylize this picture I simply put a gradient shading over it with the combination of a blue (#65c7b8) and a purple (#7a51ff). I chose the linear gradient and simply dragged it over the image. You can do this with any colour combination or just one colour.
