There’s there’s so many different ways to get through different things that you want to do a wel- I see a lot of people do this They use the lasso tool, and they just drag a bunch of plebs a bunch of goddamn plebs look at that that looks terrible, okay What you want to do is you want to use the goddamn pen tool, okay? I know people are scared of the pen tool, but it’s the best tool, and if you’re good like me And if you’re a Photoshop God like me it works out pretty simple we’re gonna start by putting down a dot Look at that if you want to get rid of that. You gotta hit delete okay.
You can’t just dot and then start doing other things, okay? That will you up you once you’ve dotted you can’t un-dot Unless you hit delete of course the pen tool that sort of curves the lines for you, and it makes it smooth It is a little weird once you start off, but basically we’ll pick a point here that Doesn’t look good right, but if you hold down your mouse button and you can drag and look at that now I haven’t just curved this line I’ve also already thought about where the next line is gonna be with this thing so if we hit here. It’s gonna be nice and Easy to do another curve coming up By better pep easy it takes a little bit of practice. You really don’t have to make it perfect It’s gonna look nice anyway Just make sure here for example that you go inside of the hair rather than too much on the outside If you do something you don’t want you can always just go back in history.
Is this just too much for you hotcakes? So you can do it relatively quickly the thing that you got to make sure though is that you connect them at the end So you get a little circle coming up from the pen tool Boop that means. It’s ready to connect there you go We have our thing what I usually just do is right-click On the thing here hit make a selection you can add a feather, but that’s for pussies I rather do that later now we have selected his face, but how do we delete the background? I’ll just hit delete Felix. Nah fam. Look what you did get away from here controls Zed that We got to inverse the selection by hitting ctrl shift.
I done now you can hit delete Isn’t that right you’re wrong only plebs. Delete directly Okay, you gotta hit the mask button And if you do the mask button you didn’t even have to inverse you can just hit it BAM Bam’s should say I’m on a lamb look at that now we have the mask selected there look huh now we have the picture selected mask selected picture selected mask selected picture selected if I select the mask I Can paint and shit all over and look at this I can paint back all over Wow you don’t need to know any of this actually nevermind now We have a jacksepticeye look at him look at him go very happy very pleased with this crop Hey beauty, what’s the next step finding a nice looking background? What should we go for something? Psychedelic perhaps, oh wow this is really trippy. This looks skin copy that shit paste it now. We have it on a new layer Oh my god, two layers.
I know this is pretty hardcore stuff. What did we learn mmm-hmm? What do we learn? How do we just decide that’s right ctrl T. That’s right? That’s right, and what else did we learn that’s right?
Never up the aspect ratio hold on hold down shift and drag it Border full, but I can’t see Jack. I no calm down Just drag the layer Underneath Jack there you go now It has this sort of vortex sitting in the middle right so we kind of want it to be there But oh no, we have all this space here to the left. What possibly could we do simple trick my man press M Okay, which makes the square selection? Select this bit all right Hit ctrl J.
Which makes a copy of your selection in a new layer hit ctrl T and Then no shift this time Pham Just drag it over Just drag it over. No one will know anything It will be our little secret now. We have two layers doing the same thing we want to merge them Click on one hold down ctrl click onto the other right click merge layers BAM It’s one unified son of now. What a lot of youtubers. Do is they add this like?
Background right eh everyone met everyone messes with the FX this little button down here so select the jacksepticeye layer, and then hit FX everyone does this outer glow look at look at that wow it’s so glowy and nice But today we’re going to do something a little different pull that range fam to the bottom Okay, then may adjust the size Like that make it Make it not very spreaded about 84% look at that that looks pretty interesting now. We’re gonna do a drop shadow Are you ready BAM and then hit okay Looks pretty cool. Looks pretty interesting. You know it makes it different. It makes it pop. It makes it good now We’re gonna add a text go to Dafont okay They have old free fonts.
It’s really good. You want something very bold easy to read and Kind of like this you ready, is this too advanced for you, that’s right you hit T You click with your mouse you select the font up here. Look I have Bebas ready I suck look at that hit ctrl a to mark your font select the color You can just click on his stupid hair and there you go We have the same one now press V to move that bish around adjust the size Maybe maybe going the edges to change How it it’s tilted and stuff ok press ENTER And then we have a pretty neat looking looking font that is if you’re an idiot of course We’re gonna add effects now We already added effects on Jack so we can cheat a little bit We can hit alt and then drag the outer glow to the I suck and same thing with the shadow look at that We didn’t even have to do any work my god.
I actually don’t really like the outer glow I think it looks too much, so we’re just gonna double click on the drop shadow to edit it and Then just decrease it a little bit. Just let just a little bit now we’re gonna ctrl T Right click and warp and then just drag and make it a little bit more interesting. Okay go with the flow you know Anything to stand out these days everyone is doing thumbnails you gotta make them right you gotta make the details This is advanced stuff This is only for the pros But I’m telling you the secrets because I know you can keep up press Enter god damn that looks good But I’m thinking it misses a little bit of glow, so let’s go to outer glow, and yeah, yeah That looks good remove the sass a little bit.
You know what I’m feeling crazy. Let’s add a shadow again How many shadows can I add as many as I goddamn please mom and then let’s make it spread a little bit This is details This is deep test hits ctrl + – zoom out ctrl + zooms in control – zooms out now We can look at it. We need to judge from a perspective.
