Do what? (Updated thanks to my editors)

Ryan sent me this picture when he was at the photo shop. Notice particularly, the modifiers for the technique. (Click on the picture to enlarge)


Okay, people, which one is it? Digital? Hand painted? Or, is it the evil robots again?

Our Klimt is like this. They just get art students to paint over a photo print with clear lacquer. More than likely these people use some sort of Photoshop filter to look like brush strokes and then use the clear lacquer on top. So it probably is both a digital painting and hand painted.

Shoe-you shouldn't!

Tim, that sounds kind of interesting. So, there is some actual handpainting involved.

That sounds like very much work. And also expensive.

The samples of the work were simply photo prints on some canvas-y material. The medium itself provided the painted look. There was no hand painting involved, so no digits were actually used to provide the digital hand paintedness of the extrememly cheesy "art work." Some of it would have looked great in an oversized and excessively ornate gold frame.
