In this short video we look at how to sharpen teeth using liquify in Photoshop. Distorting facial features and creating sharp, pointed teeth can be an interesting way to add to a creative fantasy portrait. This use of the liquify filter is demonstrated on an image inspired by Wolverine shot with model Gavin Bromley. I wanted a gritty feel overall and also to enhance the teeth to make them look almost animal like. The liquify filter is a great tool to use for this and we also look at how applying it using a smart filter can make your life easier if you want to tweak your edit. You might find this a useful technique for halloween images – give Dracula pointed teeth without plastic dentures!
