Hi James, I'm not familiar with the programs you are using but if they are anything like Photoshop there will be a warp tool somewhere in the transform menu. You will want your curtains hanging straight on two separate layers and your figure on a layer above. Then warp the layer for the right curtain till it makes the shape you want and do the same for the left. The resulting shapes should be nice and smooth and just what you are looking for.
I hope this works with your software, but keep playing anyway. It is fun and there is always a way.

I'm glad Eric has come in and given advice - I had no idea!! I like the effect and think it's well worth having another go. If you do have another go and decide to share it with us, please leave this image up, so we can compare the two! Smile

its a brilliant idea and works well,
just keep practising, that's what i do,
have you got a bubble tool,
it should be in effects along the top of your tool bar,
that will pull it outwards, you can then erase the bits you don't want,
hope this helps, i have a very simple photo studio 5,
as photo shop is a bit beyond me i need some one to help me with it.

p.s. this might help
the boys arms have a thin black line on them,
if you cut a larger margin around its much quicker and easier, then with the eraser tool rub away the unwanted bits it gives a much softer finish

I can't really help with DG images, James, but I did wonder, if you wanted to create a drawing back the curtain effect, would you need to have his arms bent ?

But the idea is fab, AND it's FAR better than I could have done Smile
