A Watercolor Portrait out of a Photo

The author of this example is K.J. Hartmann.

"Drawing has always been my passion. I started to draw in the times when computer graphics did not exist and I had to spend much time trying to achieve the "look" I needed. The modern software allows creating a piece of art in a comfortable way - without hours of drawing. And it is fun to realize the ideas quickly!
I like watercolor paintings and I will show you how to create a watercolor portrait out of a photo. I used AKVIS Sketch for this tutorial."
