THE GRAIN TUTORIAL by DanLuVisiArt THE GRAIN TUTORIAL by DanLuVisiArt
No need to explain here, it's all on the image. Just like the brushes, if this helps, please fav and support it so more people can see it. Thank you!

EDIT: IMPORTANT

When you go to the BLUR step, just do a normal BLUR effect. No gaussian blur, or motion blur. Just blur. I messed up when I wrote 15%

Thanks a lot for this tutorial!
Don't forget to set your image to 8-bit otherwise you won't be able to use any of the brush stroke filters!

Either you know where is vertical tools panel? by def they should be placed. left on the screen. and search for 2 overlapping color squares (by def Square Over= Black and Square underneath=White) . drag over your mouse and click on one of them and play with your colors! OR when you begin a new project- change "Color mode" drop down settings to >RGB Color<. and Voala you can use RGB colors in your new project.

Thank you so much for posting this tutorial! I am brand new to digital art (art in general, really...) and I've been using regular noise filters to diffuse the 'painterly' look. I like the final look of this technique so much better, it adds a gritty realism to the skin.

Blah...this is why I miss having photoshop. I can't do that effect in the version of SAI I have, and I don't know if newer SAI can do it either.

Does anyone know if this can also be accomplished in GIMP?
