Painterly Look - How?
Oct 18, 2007

I followed Ray Bayer's workflow and it didn't come out right. I believe he uses Corel Painter to get that look.

I also tried different filters, plugins and actions and nothing could match them. The closest I could was with lucis art and overlay/soft light after hi-pass. Any ideas?

On my monitor the two examples look like nice portraits but nothing like handpainted paintings - they look like photographs? In my view, the look was achieved with light positioning and some LucisArt manipulation.

Obviously, there are many ways to get the exact same results in Photoshop. I suggest perfecting the one's you know...(i.e., some love the PWL actions, some love Curves, and others love the Dodge and Burn tools).

Hello,
I gave your picture a quick try (less than 10 mns) and came up with this.

It was done with my tutorial 15 - Oil Portrait.
Hope you like it,
Sylvia

Another question...
In reply to cspringer, Oct 23, 2007

"On this example, I added texture on my Illustrated look with a picture of Cement in Multiply mode."

How does it work? I tried to use the Multiply mode and it didn't come out right.

I have to admit that the first of the pictures to me is the best of the "painterly" attempts in this thread so far. While it may lack the paintbrush toolmarks, it has something much more important - the light and tonality of the Dutch masters, and a fitting facial expression. That combined with the uncompromising technical quality of the image gives it an almost eerie feeling. I think you have transcended the "painterly" look and created the next step.
