I was telling a friend of mine that I was doing paintings with a palette knife and he told me that there is a filter in Photoshop that creates the same effect. I decided to give it a shot today. Since it's my birthday, my experimental image is this one of what looks to be my 6th birthday (judging by the candle count).
This photo reminds me that I used to cry when people started singing Happy Birthday to me. I hated everyone staring at me like that. Anyway, here it is using Photoshop's palette knife filter.
Interesting, but really? What about this looks like a palette knife? I think Adobe needs to work on that one.
