A good friend of ours asked me to take a portrait of their son and attempt to create a similar effect as the portrait of her other son at the same age.

2 years ago, she paid a local photographer to created this image for her, however, she is no longer available. Therefore she took a picture of the image and sent to me asking me to duplicate with her youngest son.

I have a couple images she is pleased with but can not get the same effect. I have tried all different tutorials and actions with no luck.

Any ideas?

Attached is the image we would like to "duplicate".

Thanks

It appears that a watercolor filter was applied to the original photo. You should be able to get a somewhat similar effect with any number of commercial plug-ins.

Or in Photoshop you can go to Filter > Artistic > Watercolor and choose the Brush Stroke option and check which of the filters there matches.... without knowing the settings used it will be difficult to get an exact match.

Note that the face has evidently been masked, at most with a very small amount of processing applied. At least, that's the way it looks to me.

Take a long look at this thread:

Virtual Oil Paintings

Pekka ended up closing the thread as the OP crossed the line into marketing his product (DVD tutorial on painterly processes) but I guess there were no hard feelings as the final post links to the OP's website: http://www.mmkgraphics​.com/tutorials/virtual​paint.html (external link)
