I'm a mixtape designer, who took a long break to learn and get better. This is one of the last things that i cannot seem to find a decent tutorial for at all. In this image, i imagine the designer who made this, somehow used a distort, of a uzi submachine gun, the wrapper contents itself is obviously custom.

How on earth do you contour something to an uzi?

Second one, he uses dollar bills sort of mummified around what are supposed to be intestines. Its insane. Usually i experiment until i get something if i want to learn something. I dont even know where to start on these.

Any experts out there, any resources with tutorials for these type of effects?

    I suggest you use a 3d program. I use Blender. Here is an example of a ribbon: blender.stackexchange.com/questions/69462/…

    I'm not sure the two examples are using the same effect. The first one looks like it's a traditional collage with a displacement map. The second looks like it was done in a 3D application as @LeoNas suggests.

    I don’t think it’s 3d: the warps look like they all exist in different perspective planes and shadows look painted. 3d would give a more consistent result. A lot of warped layers with some experience would give you the same result: just start trying, learn perspective and lighting Commented Dec 12, 2019 at 21:18

    Print paper > get toy uzi > wrap in paper > take picture > tweak... is one way to avoid dabbling in 3D :)

  • I think @curious nailed the technique for the first one. But I suspect it was merely wrapped and photographed (even a poor photo would work), then graphics added to the paper afterwards digitally. The second is merely liquify I think.

1 Answer 1


I have done a similar artwork before wrapping a texture on the drapes of clothing. I did this using the "Liquify" tool on Photoshop and it works like a charm if you do it right and with patience.

This tutorial I found on Youtube explains it - Link Here

Hope this helps!
