So for about a year (when I wanted a break from 'real artwork') I would use Gimp to do "Oil Smudge Paintings" which is a manipulation technique for photos.. along with brushwork to make a painting that looks like an oil painting.

Well I thought I would try to use the blending and smudge brush in Artrage to do a few.. and it turned out pretty nicely. Here's one that I did last night

I did a couple of my dog. It still takes talent to do it. You really have to know where and how to put the paint.

Really nice work using the tracing image, I love working with it one some of my digital photos as well, an under appreciated area I think...

Thanks GXH...

I didn't actually use the tracing image.. This technique is hard to explain.. Maybe I will do a tutorial on it when I have the time. My daughter is getting married this weekend.. so it won't be for at least a week or two.

But in the meantime.. basically you manipulate an image by pixelizing it (kind of). You sharpen and then blur.. and sharpen and blur (Gimp has a wonderful Anistrophic blur tool for this.

I then import it into AR and use a combination of Knife Tools (basically smudge and blur) to combine the pixels into an "Oil Painting" type of look.
