In this tutorial you will learn how to make oil painting using Photoshop cs6 and i am saying cs6 because i will be using a filter that only available in this version of photoshop so keep that in mind.
Now about the tutorial, so this is about how to fake oil painting using filters and smudge tool, and even if you are not a real painter or even if you don’t know basics, you can still follow this tutorial and yes you do not need to download any third party plugins to follow tutorial.
The video will start with me explaining how to open a jpg in camera raw so that you can follow it even if you don’t have raw file. first we will adjust the colors of the image to make it feel oily and then will start making the skin smooth.
i will show you a way to make skin and hair paint on separate layers and then we will use couple of default photoshop filters to make skin shiny oil painting type and then we will use unsharp mask to give it some contrast.I will also show you how you can create fake background without using any other image.
Then i will show you how you can oil paint lips, eyes and other things using smudge tool and how to use different brushes for better output. And for this tutorial i did not skip any important parts even fast forward it, i have kept everything inside the video so that you can see the actual process.
My main target with this video is that you should be able to do this oil painting effect only using photoshop and nothing else like those paid third party plugins. i have seen a lot of doing tutorial using that and not everyone can afford that.
So, I hope you learned something from this photoshop tutorial and as always if you have any questions feel free to ask me in the comments, and have some fun with photoshop 🙂
