Simple Roy Lichtenstein Style in Illustrator and Photoshop

I also discover the Width Tool in Illustrator CS 5 and it was a great surprise because now we have much more freedom when playing with strokes. So with these two things in mind I decided that I had to create an image using them, and then the idea of a design inspired in Roy Lichtenstein. There are quite a few tutorials showing how to create this type of image, but I decided to try it myself. I haven't checked any tutorial because I wanted to play with the tools, so the technique might be the same as other tutorials but I really don't know.

Cool Text Effect with the Puppet Warp Tool in Photoshop CS5 When Adobe started announcing some of the new features of the CS5 version of Photoshop they showed the Puppet Warp tool in which they played with an elephant's trunk.

So in this tutorial I will show you how to create a text effect using a photo of a rope and the Puppet Warp tool.
