Case Studies, Photography, Photoshop, Tutorials   by Nando Add comments


Photoshop special effects are amongst my favorite things to do with photographs.� I recently found a tutorial over at that shows you how to convert a regular portrait photo into a Michelangelo-esque statue using a few photoshop tricks.� You can see my two attempts at following this tutorial below. One statue looks more like stone, I then added a column and some lighting.� I made the other statue look more like marble for a sleeker surface texture, I then added some angel wings.



Follow the link over to to learn this cool photoshop effect.� Thanks for checking us out.

    A very intresting site.
    Is there any information about the dark haired girl on the photo? I’m lookin for a model like her.And she is perfect.

    I think she’s actually to be found all over the net, I’m pretty sure that girl is the soft porn model known as katie fey. You’ll find her;)
