Comic Book Flying Superman Tutorial

Photoshop CS Photo Effects Tutorials

In this beginners photoshop tutorial we will take an image of superman flying and then take a background photograph of your city (or any city you desire) and merge the two overlapping making it look like Superman is flying through your city! We will do this with filters and photoshop blurs to create the flying effect. We will also use photoshop effects and photoshop filters to create this Superman comic book effect.

Flying Superman Cartoon In Your Town

1. Create a new 800x600 RGB file with white background and insert your picture of your flying character. Make sure it has transparent background as we will be adding your town picture in the background. You can do this by tracing the image with the pen tool, load the selection and deleting the background. Here is my picture of Superman and a Toronto Skyline.

2. Now add the layers to one file. Label one Superman, label the other your town name.

3. Create a duplicate layer of your town by selecting it and hitting "command J" on your keyboard.

4. Now go to filter > Blur > Radial Blur with a Zoom amount of 70.

And your image should look something like this.

Now we totally lost all the buildings, that is no problem. We will adjust the zoom layer (since we made a duplicate of this layer we can use it to enhance this effect)
Drop the opacity to 90%

5. Duplicate all the Town layers and merge the duplicated layers together.

6. Take the merged layer - make sure it is above your original Town layers and go to Filter > Artistic > Poster Edges.

6. After the Poster Edges effect, we will Adjust the Brightness & Contrast with the values: Brightness Value: 10 Contrast: 30.

7. Now we will do an artistic cut out effect to give it that cartoon look. Go to Filter > Artistic > Cut Out. After you are done this make sure the Cartoon town layer is set to 90% opacity.

8. This is what you get.

9. Using the techniques you just learned you can play with your image and using your imagination come up with your own creative ideas. Such as this ...
