How To Turn a Photo Into a Painting Using Photoshop

Photoshop is the best common app tools use by artists as it is by photographers.

 in this project we are going to combine art forms, giving a portrait
a hand-drawn, hand-painted effect – complete with the artist’s arm ‘sketching’ their masterpiece for a 3D look Using Photoshop

You will need a portrait plus a photo of a hand holding a pencil or brush - use a simple portrait with a plain background, as this
works best for a convincing-looking drawing.

For the hand, position the subject’s arm on a white background – such as a sheet of plain paper – and shoot from directly above to keep everything in as level a plane of focus as
possible, using a mid-range aperture for a good depth of field.

 A flashgun will add a slight shadow, helping the end image look
more realistic. The technique makes extensive use of
Photoshop’s Filter Gallery to provide painterly effects, brush tools to provide different textures, and plenty of layers set at various
opacities combined with a variety of blending modes to mix and match the layers together.

The end result indeed looks impressive, but is surprisingly easy to achieve as simple as ABC....
