This is a digital oil painting of the little girl with blue eyes. I used Photoshop CS 1, impressionist filter and Painter IX. I appreciate any feedback.
Welcome to the forum, Abraham. This is a terrific
first post. I hope to see many more.
One thing I found distracting is the canvas texture effect. I understand what you are trying to simulate -- not all paint covers the canvas unformly -- but to me it just looks out of place. I wish I could make suggestions, but I don't know how to I would improve it myself -- other than take it out. Perhaps other suggestions will follow.
I might try to get a little
of the Impasto look in the face like you got in the shirt. I would do this on a separate layer in Painter, then in Photoshop use a Layer Mask to control the opaciy and final placement of the strokes.
Congratulations on your first use of Impressionist. It was an impressive
example of how it can be used along with Painter.
