Transform a portrait or family photo into a piece of art worthy of framing, in this digital painting tutorial with artist John Derry. John shares his library of custom brushstrokes and years of experience with you, and shows how to combine the powers of Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter to convert your snapshots into art. Learn to adjust the tone of the original image; paint skin, eyes, and hair; minimize the background; and add subtle vignetting. Plus, John shows you how to bundle and submit your image to online services that will print your painting on canvas.

These techniques work with subjects of any age or skin tone, and are perfect for memorializing moments a photo can’t quite do justice to.

Topics include:

  • Building the image nondestructively
  • Extending the edges of your image for gallery wraps
  • Removing distractions
  • Handling patterns
  • Making preliminary tonal adjustments
  • Blending skin
  • Adding lighting
  • Using vignetting to focus on the subjects
