Turn a girl into a witch
Tutorials Photo Manipulation 28940 Views July 15th, 2010

In this tutorial I want to show you a simple way to transform a young girl into a witch. Do you have a “friend”? Make her a witch! Evil eyes, long nose with liquify, dirty tooth and here is the result!


Go to and download this photo.

Step 1 – Change the color

Let’s start by changing the color of the photo…as we all know a witch has a yellow-green skin tone.

Go to Image – Adjustments – Color Balance and do the following settings:

This should be enough for the moment…we will adjust the tone in the end of the tutorial.

Step 2 – Liquify the face

Here comes the hard part of the tutorial…..Go to Filter – Liquify – use Forward Warp Tool and modify the nose shape …make it bigger like in the picture below. Brush size between 31 and 50…you will have to play with sizes and pressure to obtain this result.

When you are using liquify filter it is very hard to obtain the same result twice…even if you have a video tutorial…so you don’t have to obtain the same result as I did.

Use the same Forward Warp Tool and change the size of the mouth and also the expression of the mouth.

Now lets make the eyes bigger …. You can use Forward warp tool but I used Bloat Tool, brush size 55 (you can play with sizes, density and pressure to see how they work) ….as you can see the little white points inside the eyes must be the same size…and also the eyes have to have the same expression.

The final part of this Liquify transformation is with the shape of the face (forward warp tool) and the shape of the chin(forward warp tool again).

Step 3 – Add Wrinkles

At the skin level we have to make the following transformations:

Accentuate wrinkles : with Burn Tool size 2, exposure 24 % find the eyes , chin and mouth wrinkles and accentuate it. Take the Dodge tool size 2, exposure 24 % and trace a line near the wrinkles to a bigger effect.

With the Sponge Tool easy desaturate the mouth

With the same Sponge Tool saturate the areas with red of the eyes.
