How to transform a photo to anime bg in Photoshop by Huuxera How to transform a photo to anime bg in Photoshop by Huuxera
LARGE FILE IS LARGE

I hope this tutorial helps everyone who can't make detailed backgrounds easily, or wants to use a specific photo as background (their room, their city or anything) for their pictures. The tutorial is made for Photoshop 7. Of course you doesn't have to follow every steps the same way I did them. Just experiment with the filters and blend modes if you don't like the results you got with this tutorial.

If you want, you can stop at half, right before making a lineart for the picture. You get a watercolor painting as result. I marked that part in the tutorial. But for me the picture looks more anime-like with a light lineart.

I would be really-really happy if I could help you with this tutorial, and also if you send me a link of your picture which was made with the help of this tut. ^___^

Have fun drawing! <3

Tbh at first I made it without the lineart layer, but it looked really weird, since my characters had a lineart.
My friends thought I drew the background and i was like:" umm....sure, it took some time!" XD
