Liquify­ing the crea­ture

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Hybrid Species -

The Liquify fil­ter is a mar­vel­lous tool for mak­ing mi­nor re­pairs and shifts in sur­face fea­tures and de­tails. First of all I Mar­quee-se­lect a lo­cal area to work on, then open Liquify (Ctrl-Shift-X or Cmd-Shift-X). Once there, nav­i­ga­tion and brush size short­cuts are iden­ti­cal to the main Pho­to­shop view­port. I don’t try to achieve too much in a sin­gle Liquify pass, though. I find it’s much bet­ter to carry out mul­ti­ple sub­tle passes, then use the His­tory pal­ette to de­cide how far I want to com­mit.
