For the Birds Masterpiece Collection - "The Quack"

A new one already?! It's only been a few hours & there's a new piece up?! Oh well...

By popular request (& by popular I mean 2 people), here's my latest piece, "The Quack", based off of Edvard Munch's The Scream. I don't think anyone would want to steal this from a museum, let alone put it into a museum.

It's funny, I thought this would by my hardest one to do, but as a matter of fact it was a piece of cake, thanks to the Oil Paint filter in Photoshop. & yet, this is probably my least favorite project so far. I tried adding grain, saturating it, changing the colors a bit & even redoing the whole thing from scratch 3 times, but for some reason the newly-added stuff sticks out like a sore thumb. It doesn't look like it's part of the painting. I guess it's just a bit too hard to recreate the sporadic yet somewhat delicate and precise brushstrokes of Munch's work. Oh well, onto the next thing...

i cant be too sure...
but I think Edvard Munch only used the tubes to paint he didnt use burshes somtimes.. i think... it was either him or Van goh

thats probably why it was hard to paint Steve o on The Scream ... because im sure photoshop doesnt have a "oil paint tube " brush

Despite your limitations on the Adobe program you have, this has got to be my favorite one. It's pretty good work. I hope you could attempt a Seurat. That would be awesome.
