    Default Need help ripping characters from images.

    Hi all,

    I need some expert advice on ripping things off of images. I'm not planning to plagiarize or anything but want to use things that are already open domain. For example, I see a Ah! my goddess wallpaper with a high quality image of belldandy. However, the image is pretty abstract so it's a little tough to get Belldandy. I was wondering what's the simplest and practical way to do this with photoshop?

    Thanks

    Hmm the most simple way is to use 'magic eraser' to get away the big chunks of wallpaper bg around the image and for small spots 'background eraser'. simple..orr....you can go hunting for a render of the same image on a gfx site, they might have the same pic and someone has already abtracted it from the wallpaper.
    hope this helps.

    Oh my god, I can't stand using the polygonal lasso, it drives me insane. Instead, I use the pen tool, much more efficient, because you can correct your mistakes. Try it.

    Is it boring (or insane?) of me to say that I use the eraser?

    I would have to say that it's insane! lol I use the pen tool and it's so much faster. But the fact you use the eraser Pooky is commendable. you have to have a steady hand and a lot of patience. lol

    @Riotblade: I recommend you go to a few GFXer sites. Like ... ChaosGFX.com. They have some excellent tutorials on how to extract images from wallpapers and scans. Also, you could always get one of the renderer people on here to do it for you. ^_^

    A lot of the members that circulate the testing thread can render stuff. PM one sometime, you'd be surprised.

    Remember that renders are acceptable here! So, it is ok to post render stuff and get feedback via the AW.com thread. I consider it CG and can be wallpaper-able, so it's allowed.

    I like using the eraser because it's cleaner. Remember the shift key and other shortcuts!

    I'm insane like you pooky, I use the eraser ;_; Sometimes I can't extract all at once, I have to do it in short stretches otherwise I go crazy.

    *joins in the frenzy...

    From my past experience, I usually use Marquee/Polygonial Lasso but that requires patience especially if your image/scan is 1200X1000 and upper.

    Now, I use Pen Tool 'cause it is easier to trace image with curve and anime-like hair.

    You can dig up tutorials in the net on extracting and practice a lot.

    First try the magic want tool, to see if it works. Sometimes that's all you need, except with some images (usually light ones) it will erase some of the character as well. Then, you can use either the eraser- which is easy and good if you're going to 'blend' the image in, as then you can't see the bits you didn't quite erase- or the lasso tool, which is good if you hold down alt and just trace around the character- though it takes absolutely ages for a perfect extract.

    OR if your feeling super lazy then just go to a graphics site like anime share or something, and download a PNG ^.~
