This chapter is for photographers who either have always wanted to be a painter or who have painted and now want to learn how to use Photoshop to transform digital photographs into graphic art or fine art prints. This chapter is also for graphic and fine artists that want to effectively use their traditional media skills in the new digital paint studio. Of all the chapters in this book, this is the chapter that shows off the awesome power Photoshop 7 has for transforming digital photographs into art of an entirely different type.
The techniques in this chapter cover how to create line drawings, rough marker sketches, pen and ink sketches with a watercolor wash, fine art images with filters, and more. While one technique is for those with traditional painting skills, the others may be used by just about anyone with a few digital photos. While I would consider this to be a fun chapter, some of the techniques are rather long and they can be time consuming.
