How does one achieve the bleeding background effect seen in this image without editing the subject? Is this done with an effect layer or filter? It's not the best example but I'm not sure what this is called and I couldn't find another image with the same effect.
>>654448What I like to do is select the general silhouette of my drawing and use that silhouette to erase a cut out into the solid color background. After that, all you have to do is put the solid color layer that you cut out in front of your drawing then hit gaussian blur. Voila you’re doneTl;dr 1) Use select pixels on sketch layer2)select solid color layer and hit delete3)bring said layer to in front of the sketch 4)use appropriate amount of gaussian blur
>>654448Basically >>654470. Just pick the background color with the color picker tool, get a brush with a soft edge and a stupid big radius, and just lightly go along character outline with outer edge of brush.
