Turn any photo into a dot grid artwork with these Photoshop actions. You'll get great results with dots that change size. They get larger in brighter areas and smaller in darker areas. Free download available.
Select all swirls and press Ctrl + C to copy. Now Paste in Photoshop. Duplicate and arrange them over the model's jacket.
We need to create a custom pattern (in a separate document). Take the Pencil Tool and set the stroke width to 2 pixels. Turn off the background Layer. Put a dot. Make a 7 x 7 pixels selection starting from the corner of the dot. Now go to Menu > Edit > Define Pattern. Press Ok when dialog box appears.
Here is the area I want to apply the pattern. I selected it using the Pen Tool and converted into a selection. Then press Shift + F5 (Menu > Layer > New Fill Layer > Pattern) and locate the pattern you just created and press Ok. That should fill the area with our custom pattern.
We are almost there. I am not satisfied with something. That is the hair. The galaxy is a bit strong there. So we need to calm it down.
Click on the galaxy layer. Pick a soft brush. Set the brush color to #284965. Paint over the hair region directly on the galaxy layer. Don't paint over her face while brushing, be careful. Well I think it is much better now and the hair is looking good too.
Notice the difference.
Title Added. The font I used is Motel King. You may like to use your own font.
Finally get back to the background layer. I feel it is too solid, so let's add a Layer Mask to the background layer. Hide some of the background by painting with a brush, color set to black. This will reveal the white background beneath it. Well if you don't have the default white background in your document, create a new layer and fill it with #ffffff and place it below the current layer. Once you did it, I will say that's it, we just finished it Successfully!.
