Re: Mallard

Thank you Pavel and Alexmeta Pavel which software did you use ? and Alexmeta which impressionist setting did you use? both are great

on this one i used a version of Swampy's minimum sketch technique as explained here ( but swapped the minimum for graphic pen !) on top of the original and used the overlay blendmode

Re: Mallard

Palms, great photo pick.

Minimum Sketch technique
Duplicated result and set for multiply then merged all
Did a real heavy surface blur on the merged layer

AHB on a light blue textured layer using a low opacity spatter brush.
