I’m not sure how much I have mentioned my “mascot” Zac on here – but it is coming up on 10 years since I’ve been taking him along for the ride around the world with me and taking his picture. I recently got him his own Instagram (@zacs_world!) and have been trying to come up with some fun situations to put him into that may not be actual places or that may be on his bucket list. (Or mine, more likely) Since I am going to Disney soon I decided I wanted to super impose him into as many Princess castles as I could. This is just a start – I’m sure there’s many more Disney related places for him to visit (if you have an idea- leave a comment) but I knew that AKVIS OilPaint was the perfect program to make these images look really, really cool!
AKVIS OilPaint creates oil paintings from photographs! There is a unique algorithm of the artistic application of brush strokes that authentically reproduces the technique of the real brush. No two photos that I have posted have the same settings so it will give you an idea of just some of the many effects you can come up with when using the program. You can choose Simplicity, Saturation, Relief, Max Stroke Length, Stroke Thickness, Stroke Intensity, Stroke Curvature, Extra Strokes and Mix. There are also Text and Canvas options – but for this project I did not use these tabs. The Text option has many fonts and you can place the text all around the page. Great if you want to add a “signature” to your painting! The canvas allows you to choose which type of texture you would like for your cavas to make it look even more realistic. There are many to choose from!
Even if you are not a professional painter you can create your own masterpiece! Just use AKVIS OilPaint to turn a regular photo into an oil painting. The mysterious production of a painting happens right before your eyes. The program creates a work of art that looks like a handmade oil painting.
AKVIS OilPaint is available as a standalone program and as a Photoshop plugin.
