    side pixel outline tutorial

    You need to know how to use the pen tool to do this.

    What you'll need:
  • One of the Photoshop programs.

  • You'll be making something like this:

    The Steps

    1. Make sure you are on the layer that has your outline. Zoom in and use the pen tool to outline around the side of the sitemodel that you want to pixelate. Try not to use the pen tool where the stroke is showing. It doesn't have to be perfectly outlined.

    2. Once you're finished connecting the dots, right click and click "Make Selection." Make sure the radius is 0 and the operation is "new selection."

    3. Click "Filter >> Pixelate >> Mosaic." You can make the cell size between 4 and 7. I made mine 4.

    Click "Filter >> Sharpen >> Sharpen." Sharpen it 2 or 3 times. I sharpened 2 times.
