Several of you have asked me about painting your photos in Procreate on the iPad, so I thought I'd do a demo of one of my recent pieces. In video 1 below, I take you through editing the photo, blending the photo with textures, and then painting the photo in Topaz Impression to create a "pre-painting". Then in video 2 below, I take you into Procreate to actually repaint the merged image I completed in video #1. I hope some of you will find this helpful when carrying your photos one step farther and creating paintings from them.
This is the original photo I start with in video #1:

Video #2 - Painting In Procreate
Below is the finished painting from Procreate. I did do three additional things to the image after getting it from Procreate back to my computer. First, I ran Topaz Clarity Fur and Feathers 1 on the image. Then I merged and duplicated that image. Then using Topaz Restyle, I chose a dark brown preset, which I set to 20% opacity - this helped tone down the yellow/greens a bit and give the overall image a more earthy tone. And finally, I added a texture from the Mesmerized Collection on top, set to soft light layer mode at 30% just to give a little more interest to the final work.
