The author of this tutorial is T. Skaarup. He shares his experience:

"AKVIS ArtWork can be used to generate excellent Oil Painting Renderings of photographs. One potential problems is the detail and scale of an image which is so accurately rendered in a painting. The fidelity of the final painting’s dimensions to the original images dimensions can cause the casual viewer to accurately determine that the processed image is computer generated.

In this tutorial I will show you one method to make the final rendered image look more like a hand-drawn image. This is done by purposefully (and intelligently) distorting the size and details of the original image using the Smudge Tool."
