Image Source

This is the important part, choosing the right and exact source for your design. Here are some tips on choosing your source, 1. All source must be the same in pixel resolution, 2. Make sure that they have the same source of light, 3. Make it more realistic as possible.

Step 1

Layer 1 – Rotate the image 180 degrees, convert it to CMYK mode – reduce the color amount of yellow, magenta, cyan but increase the black color the desired percent is up to your desired effect.

Step 2

Layer 2 – study the position of the second image, remove some unnecessary thing that you think is not included like the shoe lace.

Step 3

At this stage, compare the color scheme of the first image to the second image then repeat the same process on “step 1”. After the color matching, crop the bottom portion to make the face of the man visible.

Step 4

From the third source, crop the rope — through this single source you can make it in different angle and perspective by using liquify and distort.
