  • Smudge Painting (Brad Buttry Style)

    I'm very new to smudge painting and to this forum. I would love critique on this photo I painted. I'm posting the original and the painted version.

      Thanks Palms! I've been lurking for a while now and am impressed with everyone's work. While I may decide to branch out in retouching, I'm really liking the smudge painting and hope to be able to offer it to clients.

      I've been at it just about 6 weeks and feel like I'm starting to get somewhere. I do try to practice an hour or so every day (although I did take about a week off because I felt I wasn't really improving much).

      I will keep posting. Thanks!!

        Frizzsky you have the right idea "keep practicing" , yes as you have found out you feel you are getting nowhere and feel like giving up, but have a rest and practice again, and sometimes you know it is the photo's fault

          Your painted version is very appealing and nice to look at.

                I like it very much. Nice technique you have. I have to mention that your credit line seems a b it large to me, in comparison to the total picture tho.

                  Thanks for the comments. I hope to keep improving!

                  I wouldn't leave the studio name on the painting if I printed it. It's really just habit to water mark all my photos before posting them on the internet.

                      Yes, the paint 02 for the back ground, the skin is paint 01 and the hair was a combination of the hair 01 and 02. The vest is pretty much all the hair brush 02.

                      Go ahead an comment anything that looks off (or good). The DVD was just a way to get started, but I'm sure there are things I'm missing.
