Course Description

This Comic-Style says good-bye to reality and the everyday portrait picture we see all the time. Extremely big heads, bright colors, big eyes, slim bodies, and a plastic body look are the key elements of this very unique comic style.

This exceptional workshop inspired many German photoshoppers in the last years. Now, for the first time, Gabor Richter presents his Comic-Style in English! Take part in a journey where you learn to transform a „normal“ picture into an extraordinary Comic-Style picture. I will show you, in 50 videos and using many different pictures and techniques, how I create my Comic-Style pictures. The goal of this workshop is that you will be able to create your own Comic-Style picture to excite not only your friends and relatives, but also the world wide community out there on the internet.

In this training, I will not leave anything out. I will share all my secrets with you using simple techniques and simple language. In this video workshop, I will not show only one picture from A to Z. I will show many pictures and explain how to apply my techniques in different situations:

  • More than 4.5 hours of video material
  • 50 single vides
  • 9 Chapters
  • 32 RAW files inclusive for you to practice (not for commercial use)

Due to my many years of experience with Photoshop and as trainer, I’m sure you can learn a lot in this training, and you will have a lot of fun watching it.

What are the requirements?

  • This training is recorded with Photoshop CC but most techniques are still working with earlier versions
  • Raw material to practice is included as additional download
  • You should already have some basic knowledge about Photoshop (for example you should know what is a layer and a mask)
  • A graphic tablet is helpful, but not necessary

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Change and even completely transform a persons body shape
  • Resize the head, hands and eyes to extreme size to give form a comic character
  • Learn to retouch eyes and change their color
  • Change the background with and without extracting the Model and replace it with color or texture you like
  • Give your image a plastic look by using the dodge and burn technique

What is the target audience?

  • This workshop is made for people who would like to have fun with Photoshop
  • Many techniques can also be used for other pictures styles
  • You will learn more than one solution for a problem
  • Basic knowledge of Photoshop is helpful
