Step 1 of 17: Intro
The aim of this tutorial is to create a curved box pattern over the face and then make selections from it. These are then copied and positioned so that they look like they have flown out from the face itself.
It’s important to get the chunks to go in the right directions, so those on the top half of the face go out and up and those on the bottom half go out and downwards. As they are moving towards the imaginary camera then they need to get bigger. The larger they are, the close they appear to the viewer. To start you’ll need a close up face show with a decent amount of sharp detail. The tricky part is making the Path selections to encompass the curved parts of the chunks.
If you create bigger sections, it’s generally less effort, while smaller section mean more pieces and more work but it gives a more intense and blown-up image at the end.
