Using art filters
There are many filters available that suit the production art process, such as those produced by AKVIS, or the Waterlogue app. Making painterly looking pieces of concept art used to take days – now, by clever photobashing and art filters the job can be done in hours. You may not agree with these art shortcuts, but I think production artists should be aware of and utilise all the tools available to us. I don’t think any of these filters are perfect, but they do a lot of the heavy lifting, leaving us to finish the image with our illustration skills to give it that vital human touch.
