Oil painting vs Smudge painting!
Nov 14, 2012

Why would we spend hours in smudge painting while we can use oil painting in photoshop cs6 ?
I know that using smudge tool gives you the full control and the results would be better of course but for enthusiast (just like me) I don't need the professional look and I don't want to spend hours in doing that .
By the way, I like Mr.Scott and Mr.Ray's results they are perfect and I think they are great artists .

Original :

Dog and frame from deviantart

Also there were a tutorial by Mr.Scott for smudge painting
this is his work :

and this is my result using Oil painting :

note: I used smudge tool only for backgrounds of the two dogs
