In this smudge painting or oil painting or cartoon type painting whatever you wanna call it tutorial, i will show you how you can get this effect done without some crazy painting skills.

i have seen a lot of this smudge painting effect tutorials but most of them use actual smudge tool which can be pretty heavy on system and dose not have much control, plus some directly paint suing brush tool which can be really tough for beginners (even i suck at that 😀 )

we will use only one single tool, which is mixer brush tool. you will need at least photoshop cs6 for this tool so sorry to the people using older versions.

Also we will do some camera raw editing to prepare image for effect and then after when its done we will also apply some adjustment layers to finish it and it one of the easiest method i could think of.

So, I hope you learned something from this photoshop tutorial and as always if you have any questions feel free to ask me in the comments, and have some fun with photoshop 🙂
