About this tutorial

This Gry Garness tutorial, Remodelling a Figure in Photoshop, is an advanced Photoshop technique tutorial that can be applied to men, women and even trees! Gry demonstrates how to subtly remodel a figure in Photoshop to correct the model’s slumped pose. The video shows how to apply a series of transforms that rebalance the figure without altering her general shape too much. This has the same effect as if you asked the model to stand up a bit straighter. The big challenge here is that there’s a background that must be aligned and 3 parts of the body that need joining. This tutorial takes you through the steps without too much heavy lifting!
