Oil Painting Effect From Your Photos – Photoshop Mixer Brush Technique | 90-Second Tip #20


Hi!
Welcome back to the PhotoshopTrainingChannel.com. I’m Jesus Ramirez.
In this 90-second Photoshop tip, I’m going to show you how you can use the mixer brush
to create oil paintings from your photos. I’ll be using this portrait, but you can use
any photo that you like. First, select the mixer brush from the toolbar.
It is nested under the brush tool. Then, from the options bar, click on the down-pointing
arrow, and under general brushes, select soft round and set the hardness to 80%.
The mixer brush simulates realistic painting techniques, such as mixing colors on the canvas,
combining colors on a brush, and varying painting wetness across a stroke.
We will use these capabilities to create the oil painting effect from a photo.
Make sure that you disable this button, which loads the brush after each stroke, and enable
this button, which cleans the brush after each stroke.
Then adjust the settings of the brush. You can use a preset from the dropdown.
The Moist preset will work great in this case. You can experiment with other presets if you
like, but moist will be a great starting point. Then, make sure that you enable sample all
layers, and if you’re using a Wacom Tablet, enable pressure sensitivity.
Next, create a new layer. I’ll call mine, Painting Effect.
Then I will reduce the portrait’s opacity to 75% to make the areas that I paint on easier
to see. Next, start painting on the blank layer.
Even though the opacity is reduced, the mixer brush can pick up the colors below and it
reveals them at 100% opacity in the new layer, and this creates the oil painting effect.
Make sure that as you paint, you follow the shapes and contours of the people or objects
in your photo to get better results. I’ll speed up the painting process so that you
can see what my final image looks like. I use this technique on my Behance livestream
on Adobe’s official Creative Cloud YouTube channel. If you would like to see how I color
corrected and added canvas texture to my final result, then check out the recording.
I’ll place a link right below in the description. If this is your first time at the Photoshop
Training Channel, then don’t forget to click on that subscribe and notification button
so that you don’t miss any new Photoshop tutorials. Thank you so much for watching.
I’ll talk to you again in the next video.

    You know my friends ask me "How do you learn Photoshop?" and my response is always the same "Only through Jesús" "He has a YouTube channel? ", they ask "Yes. It's PTC and I can't extend my gratitude enough for everything to him." haha… Thank you Ramirez for everything 🙏🏾 🙏🏾 🙏🏾

    This is what so many "digital artists" do to fool people into thinking they are painting digital paintings from scratch. It's so shady!!

    On my Photoshop CC 20.0.6 I can't find the mixer brush. The brush tool has only "Brush Tool" and "Pencil Tool" on the drop down. Is it somewhere else?
