"Cheat In Photoshop" Book

In our film, Beast Bike Beauty, we made a tombstone within Photoshop and then composited it into the cemetery scene with After Effects. We learned how to create the face of the gravestone from a tutorial in Steve Caplin's terrific book, How to Cheat in Photoshop CS6: The Art of Creating Realistic Photomontages. ISBN: 9780240525921. Highly recommend it.
