Zombie Photoshop Tutorial

In this first tutorial of The Photoshop Training Channel, I will guide you through the various easy-to-follow steps for creating a realistic Photoshop Zombie.

Why a zombie for my first tutorial? it’s not even Halloween?

Well, Zombifiying people in Photoshop is ridiculously good fun! And The Walking Dead is one of my favorite shows, so I figured I would start with a cool-looking zombie!

Also, the techniques that you will learn in this Photoshop tutorial can also be applied to many other types of projects. So you don’t need to create zombies in Photoshop to be able to apply the tricks you’ll learn in this video tutorial.

Update: You can see how crazy I am about Zombies in the Tweet below:

In this zombie Photoshop tutorial, I won’t be using any face swapping techniques, instead, I will use non-destructive techniques, so you can always go back and fine-tune your image.

I’ll use a picture of a young woman to create this cool Photoshop effect, but feel free to use your own image to make your zombie, the trick is with the textures we’ll be using.

Also, don’t be afraid of pressing Ctrl + Alt + Z (Mac: Command + Option + Z) on your keyboard to undo any mistake you may have done!

If you have any questions or comments leave them below.

If you created something and would like to share it, leave the URL to your image as well.
