Learn to think like a painter and render images from photographs that look like they were created with oils or acrylics, using the latest digital artist's tools. Author and artist John Derry introduces the process of interpreting a photograph into a painted work of art. He begins by explaining his system of visual vocabularies, which describe how to replace the elements of an image with expressive painterly qualities, and also shares the custom brush sets and actions he uses to achieve these results in Photoshop. The course also covers working with filters, layers, effects, and more to add further detail and texture.
Well, here we are at end of the course. If you followed along from the beginning, then you have installed new artist brushes, explored custom actions in Photoshop, and in the process, started to create an expressive work of art that communicates your vision. This course is only the beginning of the process. You hopefully are now ready to take these tools and techniques and start scouring your digital photo collections for images that you can take from plain pixels to artistic brushstrokes.
You will be amazed at some of the things you can create. If you want to explore, more on the topic of brushes, I recommend that you check out my course, Photoshop CS5: Painting with the Mixer Brush, or if you want to see how other artists use the Brush tools and create digital painting, check out Bert Monroy's The Making of Times Square. Thanks for joining me and happy painting!
