Get the Digitally Painted Look

Very nice tutorial, Welsh. And it doesn't take long to whip a few up once you get the steps down.

A few celebs from my favorite shows:

David Tennant and Karen Gillan from Doctor Who

Cool effect Welshy! Nice of your wife to allow you to use her photo in a tutorial ;)

Have I missed an update, or is Metallize in Effects > Color? Ah...
 

Changed " Metallize" from "Adjusment"->"Metallize" to "Effect"->"photoColor"->"Metallize"(changed 2012/03/10)

@ BarbieQ' ... thanks, duplicating layers/ playing with Blend Modes adds different looks

@ Daniels ... cool results. I especially like the DT one - that's got the 'look'

@ EER ... I found myself thinking, nah he can't be right ... but as you're the the keeper of the hall of plugins I should have known better
Changed. Thanks ... my wife has got far prettier eyes ;)

@ Dug ... thanks - I guess we're both old fashioned when it comes to Metallize. EER was right. It all becomes clear now I know your nationality, those images - a by product of Irn Bru  :P

Changed. 

 

I was quite thorough when I updated the formatting of the Plugin Index.  Downloaded every available plugin and found out where it resided, what the file was called, etc...,  Did it manually.  Ghastly job, but someone had to do it :)

 I found my gal at Morgue File. After using Pastel, her face was too red so I lowered the hue, used smudge on her teeth to get rid of what looked like plaque and then used the lowest setting of splinter to smooth her features. Interesting tutorial thanks for writing it.

And tried this on a variety of non-human images sometimes with weird results. :P

 

Edit: Changed my sentence slightly.

No worries and great result.  

TBH there's so many ways of utilising/ using different effects in different ways I think EER would lock it for being too long if I put everything in.  fragment can add an interesting look for example

 

This is one of those point on the way tutes and let people run  :evillaugh:

Very great. I was looking for the way on how to do this myself. Thank you so much. The combination on layers do make magic effects happen.

Thanks Ishi ... tutorials are my way of giving a lil' something back to the community.  There's more chance of me giving birth than of me writing a plugin (= 0 on both counts)

 

Admittedly some starting images give better results than others.

Seeing is believing sometimes ;)  

That said, I've had a couple of failures with it lately when the starting models have been too pale

 

Thanks SAND33P

That he was.  One of the best from the galleries/ tutorials I've seen and I wish I could have met him.  

 

Out of curiosity, despite being banned surely his tutorials/ images remain his intellectual property assets/ or his family if bequeathed - if he deleted the original images from the hosting site then does the forum have the rights to repost them without obtaining permission first ?  Technically they are still his property and not that of the forum ?

Yes intellectual property rights remain. This is a tricky area to negotiate, especially where one party has 'virtually' disappeared.

I've provided an alternative version of the tutorial in order for it to remain available to forum users. I believe that this was the intent of the author when they published in an open forum. I have kept the name of the author in the PDF and posted it in the same place as the original.

Welshblue was ultimately banned, but does/did have my personal email address & other points of contact. Authors wishing to have their works removed from the forum need only request it.

It was rumored that Welshblue had passed away. I was unable to confirm this despite investigating. If it is true then it would be sad for his legacy to be lost for a handful of missing images.
