I have seen a thread on here for creating the appearance of a hole having been punched through a piece of paper... And I have attempeted it with little success (so poor it's not worth showing) now I need help.... Have a background i made (just simple) using render clouds and lighting I want to make a hole through that and have tenticles look that lther are coming out of the large hole in the middle....

I am kinda lost, I know how to make tenticles... but I don't know how to give them the perspective of coming out of the hole.... or how to make the hole.... help please.

1) sketch it out on paper.

2) examine what techniques and what placements of light/shadow, and what use of line/form make it appear to be coming through the paper/background.

3) *then* and only then try to adapt those techniques to Photoshop - figure out how to make a shape fitting for your to add the shadows, highlights, etc...

I can't stress this enough - you *have* to understand the idea before you can adapt the idea to photoshop. Making this type of drawing/painting is not a "photoshop" thing. It is an "art" thing.

Make sense?
