Reader Tutorial: Easy Digital Painting in Photoshop

This tutorial will walk you through the simple steps used to turn a regular photograph into an interesting digital painting illustration, using Photoshop's Filter Gallery and the Smudge Tool. Depending on the photograph you choose, it shouldn't take you more than a couple of hours to complete. Before I begin, I must give a huge thanks to @kidhelios / George Auckland (my old boss from the BBC) as the source for this illustration. Preview The first thing to do is to resize the photo to your desired output size. This is important as the Filter Gallery effects are heavily pixel based and if you resize after you've finished your work, it can blend them all back together and lessen the overall effect. Next we need to drop out the background, fix any problems and prepare the photo for the filters. Now we are finished with our basic image adjustments, it's time to apply the filters. Select the bottom layer of the three and apply the 'Poster Edges' effect from the Filter Gallery.
