Step 3: Creating a Larger Cheek and Flap of Skin

Now to the fun part - extending out the cheek! There are several ways to do this - and here is the easiest! First, please note that I accidentally grabbed more than the cheek when doing it, I grabbed some hair along with it. This is easily fixable and I'll show you how. It still looks awesome though.

Take the Pen Tool out again, and make points around the cheek where you want to extend it out. See image as to how I did it. Then once you go around to the starting point, you'll need to MAKE SELECTION and feather it 2 px. Then go to EDIT, TRANSFORM, WARP. Move the points around, pull them as needed to get that cheek curved properly without distorting it too much! If you have any issues with objects near it looking odd, like my hair problem. Please refer to graphics below on how to easily blend and fix those up.

Also, if you want your red face below to be pulled and distorted to fill in some of that space more, just do the exact same technique on that layer.

I love it, so I had some time and did it with a twist. <br> <br>Found a skull and spine on the web and made the zipper open to the bones instead of the muscle. <br> <br>Perfect for Halloween. <br>
That's a good idea Mickey! If you can upload it so we can see it that would be awesome too! :) Thanks for the comment!
Scary goodness!

Wow!!! That is incredible!!! I'd like to try it out but the zipper file of yours is in JPEG, how do I download the PNG file? I really want to try it out! thanks!
Ok I tried to reupload it here but it became a jpg again..I'll have to investigate into how to fix that later. For now, I have uploaded it here: http://www.manncodesigns.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/zipperonly.png for you to download directly!
thanks dagob. I think instructables may have converted it...hmm..i will upload it again and post a comment to let you know! :)
This was a lot of fun to do! I only have photoshop elements so some features like Warp I had to leave out. Great instructable and good instructions, thanks!
Nice job Adam on the pic - gross!! Glad the instructions helped! I tried finding something similar to warp for elements and I found this: Filters&gt;Distort&gt;Liquify - not sure if that might help!
...awesome!!! It's a great job! kudos! <br>
Thank you Jiek!!!

Yeah my son walked in as I was finishing it up and said the same thing!!! It is gory
This is sooo cool...you and alian in an Holly mask!...yep...you have my vote!
Thank you Shazni!!
I rated this 5 stars and while I was doing that I saw that 5 stars means gorgeous. I'm not sure if that's an accurate description of this instructable! LOL.
Thanks rrkrose! That's pretty funny! :) I appreciate the rating even though the instructable is the farthest thing from gorgeous! I'll take it! lol
That is incredibly gross and creepy! Nice job!
Hey Penolopy I have a question! I put this in the wrong category - should have been in Halloween ...do you know how I can fix that as it won't let me? Thanks...
It's moved :)
Thanks Penolopy - it is disgusting!
