Tutorial (link): Painting by Tracing a Photo, Scott Kelby

This tutorial uses a technique similar to tracing to create a photo-based paintings. Although Photoshop-based, the concepts can be applied in other programs as well.

Attached is an image that will give you a real rough idea of the possibilities. I used brush "Dry Brush on Towel" and this took about 20 minutes.

I kept the brush size and opacity pretty much the same throughout. (This is not recommended. It is usually better vary opacity and diameter to suit the detail being traced, but I was in a hurry to try this method.)

Between the Background and paint layers I created a new layer and filled it with white. When turned on the white layer helped me see what areas still needed to be painted.

Optional: For the detailed lines I duplicated the Background, moved the duplicate to the top of the layer stack, applie Blur > Smart Blur > Edges only, inverted (Ctrl + I) and changed the blend mode to Darken.

Optional II: For a little more detail I duplicated the Background again, moved the duplicate to the top of the layer stack and changed the blend mode to Lighten.

It's an interesting method and will work well on some images.

Have fun...

~Danny~
