This Technique

I am most fascinated by this technique in photoshop where people are made nearly cartoonish yet seem to have realistic color/features (but oversized). I have searched google but am not fully sure what term to search for to learn more about this style. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You'd probably have to ask the artist for specifics. He has a unique soft stroke and looks to be hand drawn/painted. Liquify and warp tools are good for changing facial features such as above. Keywords would be: Photoshop caricature tutorial.

I haven't done a lot of warped caricatures to consider myself a pro at it and it's very time intensive to paint over or redraw an entire image. These two below required a lot of hand brushing and texturizing, after the initial distortions were made with the liquify tool.

This may help with the cartoon look:

You can also check out RW Pike's entries, as he does a lot of great warped caricatures.

I do know some techniques to get an airbrushed but realistic caricature. However, I, as AZ, am not as experienced in this area so you are better off looking up a tutorial as he suggested for caricatures.

In your reflection what do you see? False fault or a masterpiece? But a masterpiece starts with a single stroke and empires start in an open field.

I attempted something similiar.

- Cut and paste sections of his face (shin, forehead,eyes,jaw, glasses, etc. )
- Use transform and warp tools to shape sections.
- Noise reduction, Topaz filters and clone tool to smooth out the skin.
- Hair was from an additional source.
- Smudge brushing the image will soften the features more.

Yeah, I copy parts of the original and use warp/transform tools to enlarge certain areas of the face. I just never decided to them an airbrushed look.

by the way, nice job AZ with that chop.
