Oil Smudge Painting in Photoshop

March 23, 2016

In this Photoshop Tutorial I will show you how you can turn an ordinary portrait photo into a stylish oil/smudge painting. This technique has been quite popular as of late, and after having received a few requests from viewers on how to create this look I am going to walk you through the steps. We will be using a combination of filters, brushes, sharpening techniques, and the smudge tool to achieve the desired result.
