Lets Paint! - A tutorial on “traditional-like” painting technique using photoshop!

3DAllusions is proud to share this post production tutorial by Neil Cristobal a.k.a. 'Bokkins'. Neil was kind enough to share this technique in the forums and we have transfered it here to the new site. 

 

Hi everybody!

After learning the “traditional-like” painting technique using photoshop, I have prepared a simple step by step tutorial to guide you and try this painting style. Enjoy!

To begin with, I will be using this image from my folder – nothing really special about it, just like any other rendered image I had.

Image

In photoshop, open any image, then triplicate it by selecting all (ctrl a) then pasting twice (ctrl v). it will look something like this.

Then click on layer 1 and add the chalk and charcoal filter. Below are the settings.

Image

Image

Image

Chalk and charcoal looks something like this:

Image

Click layer 2, then add the glowing edges filter, and the settings.

Image

Image

Glowing edges looks something like this:

Image

Again, click on layer 1, change the blending option to “color burn” and the layer opacity to 60 as shown below.

Image

Image will look something like this if you turn off layer 2.

Image

Click on layer 2, change the blending option to “difference” and the layer opacity to 60 as shown below.

Image

Image will look something like this after were done with both layers.

Image

After doing two layers of filters, you will see that the “traditional-like” painting is already coming out. Now, we will add another layer in white to make our creation more believable. We need to add some noise and blur as shown below.

Image

And start erasing parts of that layer to show the painting below. The trick is to use a wet brush to simulate the strokes of a paint brush.

Image

Image

The images below shows the step by step erase pattern.

Image

After a few tweaks on brightness, contrast, saturation and other personal editing preferences, here is the final image.

Image

You can also make a black & white, sepia or bluprint output from the finished product.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial as I did making it. LOL! Pardon me for the typo and grammatic errors on my sentences, this is my first time doing it. I would also like to thank pradipta and russell for the warm welcome, speedline for encouraging me to do this, and to my best bud enigma for the support. Thanks also to my friend way back in 3dpinoy – Da_rock. And to everybody in this community, d.sign, man&mouse and to the rest. Enjoy Thanks!
