So working on Flashy Kati got me wondering about other people's "GTA Style Photo to Drawing" techniques in photoshop.

I think my first try isn't that awful.



Like her bottom half looks really convincing as a drawing but her face and stuff looks like an image. Hmm.. any reccomendations?

I've found it's impossible to be more human than human. Inhuman, however, is easy.

Well thats exactly what it is. Hm, well what suggestions do you have? I followed a tutorial and all I could get out of it was a weird effect that really only works when people/objects are far away. The one up there was just experimental.

The gta style concept artwork are actually hand painted. You need some good photoshop/paintshop pro/illustrator expereince fir this. For the older artworks, like vice city and SA it is easy to trace a vector of the shape of the person and then add the details over the top. The new GTA IV paintings require paint tool, smudge tool, dodge and burn tools, and general artistic knowledge.

My avatar is GTA style. I made this about 4 years ago. I may need to make an updated one soon. So i may make a tutorial about it.

If you look at my new sig in large it isn't really that detailed, it just seems it because of the small scale.



I think i had a wider range of colours, that may have made it seem more detailed.

Nice effect heh. Makes the lighting more dramatic. Definitly cool

I tried my next hand at the effect and this is the closest I can get. I think I'll just use this effect from hereon.

Yeah there really isn't one or two filters that'll do it automatically. real pics just have too much detail.

Mhm, I thought so I'm just trying to mimic it in a stylized sort of way.

Which type passes off better though so I know which to use in the future.

You have a good start there on the second one. But all you need to do is work into it more in a bit of detail. Like some areas are in need of more detail than others. Like make it a bit more crisp and sharper. While skin is quite flat and bland, eyes and hair need to stand out.

I thought adding a background might help and I used multiple layers to try and blend detail with the simple drawing style

Yeah, try using the smudge tool, experiment with the hand tools rather then just blending layers and using filters.

What I do is I use the filters to decrease detail dramatically, and I go in with the handtools to clean up the areas I need to clean up. Namely I use the eraser with like 10 percent opacity. I adjusted the businessman a bit, I'm not sure how it looks now. The second is a new one and my boyfriend insists that its the best i've done but I disagree. Here they are:






EDIT: What I've noticed is the problem is either too much detail or too little detail. Thats why I'm experimenting to see which mixture is best. Also the Faces are the *hardest* part. Somehow I can get the entire body just right but the face is the tricky one.

Here's another. Because I loathed the woman in the black dress.

if you have photoshop you can get a similar style with the "cutout" filter.
