SILOUHETTING, TRI-TONES & HALF TONES
Means to "CUT SOMETHING OUT". The ways are:
With a mask - a mask IS
More or less information can be allowed to be SEEN thru the mask by simply painting black or white.
With a path - Path can be saved in the PATH panel and you can copy paths from Illustrator to photoshop. It's also particularly great for any kind of circle or oval
way is to erase. It's so "student-y"
It's bad because it not clean. And once something is erased you can't bring it back (other than with the History pane - sometimes).
Best to flatten your layers.
Then convert into grayscale. Use your levels to get the best distribution of those grays. Now think of what color would be best for your shadow
Your image is in rgb, go to Hue/Saturation, Bring saturation way down so image is now in gray scale
Go to filters > pixelate> Color halftone >
