AKVIS ArtWork 3.0 is now out in the market, available in Mac and PC versions as a stand-alone or a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop.
ArtWork applies different painting techniques to digital pictures. Version 3.0 offers a new painting style â€“ Pen & Ink, as well as the possibility of converting photos into Oil Paintings and Comics.
Akvis says the program combines advanced painting techniques with a touch of an artistic approach to ordinary digital snapshots, making your digital pictures look as if they were real oil paintings. The program lays brush strokes naturally using the original photo as a reference, allowing creative persons to touch-up the painting by selectively changing the direction of the strokes.
