This is pure, perfect digital fakery: your start-to-finish guide to realistic photomontage and illustration with Photoshop. It’s built around real projects, many of them from Steve Caplin’s own impressive portfolio. And it covers everything from QuickMasks to hyperrealism.
Turn here to learn how to make it look like the people you’ve inserted are actually interacting. How to get realistic shadows and highlights. Do perfect haircuts. Make wide-awake people look like they’re sleeping. Add depth to flat artwork. Add editable text to 3-D surfaces. Create blood, gore, floods, rips, tears, folds, wrinkles, crumples, grime...if you need to fake it, start right here. Bill Camarda
