Hello, here's a text based tutorial on how to cartoonize your photo with Photoshop CS6.

NOTE: It can also be done on CS4.

First of all before you start you should have at least a good quality picture and Photoshop.

Step 1: Open the Photo in Photoshop, then navigate to "Layers" and double click on it.

Step 2: Create a New Layer, then name it "Sketch"..

Step 3: Click on Brush tool Or press "B" on your keyboard, set the brush size to 3% and hardness to 100%

Step 4: Click on the layer "Sketch" then click on the Pen Tool or Press "P" on your keyboard, and take the pen tool to trace around the image or an object in the image..

NOTE: Using the PEN Tool will be hard for new users, tongue I had the same problem, but after some time i got used to it..

Step 5: After you're done tracing, RIGHT click on your mouse and select Stroke Path, then select Brush in the drop-down, and click OK.

NOTE: If you get to a point whereby you cant trace round, hold down ALT and click on the LITTLE POINT.

NOTICE: Repeat Step 5 till the image and/or/with an object is fully traced.

Step 6: Create A New Layer, name is Color, Set the blending mode of the layer "Color" to Multiply.



Step 7: Use the Eye tool (Press E) to select the image/objects color, then Press B(Brush) and set the size to what u think is good enough to add a fill. Then goto Layers click on Color layer, then use the brush tool to add a fill to the color layer.

NOTE: Make sure you Click On the EYE icon on the main photo, (That is to disable it.)

Do Step 7 till the cartoon is fully formed, at first it'll loook weird but keep trying..


At the end, you should have this -

Let me try

It requires time, patience,...

You zoom the picture until you can find the pixels

Use a very small brush (let's say size 2 or 3)
NB: use high quality images for better results

Place a new layer on the picture and trace gently


I don't know your strength in photoshop so I don't know how detailed I should go

PM me tho

You make use of several layers

For me, I use one layer per task

For face only project I have

- outline layer
- facial color layer
- eyes layer
- mouth layer
- hair layer

Cuz they all require a different approach

Your outline (usually black) gives you the 'frame'
With all the body parts indicated (hair not included)

After the outline I do a complete painting of the face using the brush tool with the desired color
After which I use the eraser tool to clean up the organs that need cleaning ( eyes, mouth, eyebrows and all...)

Using the marquee tool, I select these organs that require a different color and apply the appropriate colors

After all the fun I do a little toning of the skin
To bring out some originality
