So here’s is a fun little project you can do with your kids or really anyone that you may want to control…ahem, I mean impress.

Just a couple of simple techniques will have you done in no time… no strings attached. ? You will get the best results from two images from the same shoot so that they have the same lighting, but it is possible that you may want to add two different people from different shoots, so it is up to you.

Start with an image that will work for the puppet master… hands out

Add a second image with the person in a usable pose with arms doing something

Resize the second image to be “puppet” size

Now add the control rods… any type of wooden or metal rod can be used

Use the Pen tool or line tool to draw lines from the ends of the rods to the hands and feet

Don’t forget to add a little string around the ends of the rods

Draw lines for the mouth and joints. To add realism draw a second line at 50% opacity on the edges to give extra depth

Final image

And there you have it… quick and easy, but can be used for a number of applications… but I personally like to do this to my kids with me pulling the strings… ’cause I like to pretend I am in charge. ?
