Improving Oil Effect with AirBrush


Some objects are hard to paint with brush strokes: human faces, hair, fur, small details. In many cases you can achieve better results with preprocessing in AKVIS AirBrush. The program produces beautiful stylized images that can serve as the perfect base for oil painting or other artistic effects.
