Comic Art Effect

Ben-Grapefruit-Orig    Ben-Grapefruit-Comic

Experimented a bit last night with this Photoshop tutorial — how to turn photographs into comic book art panels (click for larger versions). Fairly involved – nine pages and nine layers, but took less than 15 minutes. Could probably trim that to five minutes with a bit of practice. Actually, some of the built-in posterization options in later versions of Photoshop get you fairly close to this effect, but without the halftone screen and cross-cut hatching that “sell” it as comic art. Pictured (before and after): My father-in-law Ben picking grapefruit in Palm Springs last winter.
