Nathan Grant did it best in Photoshop

Creative news and updates from DTG Magazine

Nathan did this flag to flower conversion for a contest at Photoshopcontest.com . . . nice work, Nathan . . . who writes :
      Alright, so part of the reason I started a blog was to share some of the knowledge I have accrued over the years in the realm of photoshop. By no means am I a pro. Everything I learned has been online and from tutorials written by others. I never went to school to learn photoshop but the biggest thing I have learned is that you can do the same thing multiple ways. The important thing to do is to experiment and try to come up with something that pleases you.

Paint a flag on a face

Creative news and updates from DTG Magazine

Don't know if you'll be able to follow this one or not! RQStudios seems to be attempting to enhance their traffic by running Photoshop tutorials. Except they also seem to be in a race of who can create a tutorial with the least number of words.
      This one's not very good . . . forgot to increase the color values and contrast of the model's face before making the image displacement map.

Free Download HELL

Creative news and updates from DTG Magazine

Remember we've always warned you about the word "Photoshop" and the word "download" . . . and how you have to be soooooo careful.
      Stay away from www dot down-down dot com -- they pop up in many, many Photoshop searches. You think you're going to download the flags art, but instead you get a dot-exe file that starts loading an application into your OS. DO NOT CLICK
      We found a lot of other sites using the same structure and affiliate links . . . looks like they've replicated themselves dozens of times... all of which download crap. Click the "image" link below to see another.

      This goes to show that the web is full of idiots who use keywords that have nothing to do with the actual content resident at the arrival. This was good enough to post!
