Displacement Effect Tutorial in Photoshop

In this tutorial I will be showing you how to use the displacement Filter to your advantage and create a stunning black and white illustration. You will learn how to create clipping masks by using splatter brushes and how to manipulate image adjustments to sort out coloring and shadow composition. This tutorial is very easy to follow and you will learn quite a few new little tricks by doing the tutorial. Hope you enjoy it and have fun.

I wrote the tutorial for Francesco Mugnai’s Blog where I am editor as well. It is a hefty technique that a lot of users don’t know about and would be able to implement pretty well with their usual work flow.
