Digital Painting: Transforming a Portrait Released

Click image to view larger
My latest title, Digital Painting: Transforming a Portrait, has been released.

From the course page:

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.

If you've ever wanted to transform a favorite photo of a friend, family, or loved one into a painting suitable for hanging, then this course is for you!


  1. I just completed the portrait course on I thought it was terrific! In fact, it made me think that painted eyes are better than photographed eyes and I likely will paint eyes in my photo portraits. Thanks, John!

  2. Thanks for the wonderful cybercourse ! Makes me want to finally use Painter X3 !
