Sorry for asking again, but the clipping part I'm really having difficulties. If someone points me to any tutorial video, which I didn't find on YT, I would gladly do several portraits and post here. 🙃

P.S. These two portraits have been posted before, but have not been converted to watercolor yet.

Actually i didn't do any job (beside cut off the background): all the "waterclolor" process is made with a single click (well maybe 2) to apply a filter as is. Check my previous post. I wrote instructions to watercolor your portraits in a few minutes using only free tools.

Hello,

a friend of mine edited this cool portrait (not enough cool dudes with simple breastplates here if you ask me). Would any kind soul made a watercolor version for my forthcoming Deadfire playthrough, please?

Thanks in advance!

Which are great. Thank you for the instructions. I ended up using paint.net and paint 3D. One question, though: where can I find the background that you use?

You mean che watercolor background ? Obisidian provided it for download back then. The link was in the Portraits Thread part I

For a better quality I suggest you to resize it to 210x330 when you paste the portrait on it so it fits exactly. Then only when you have created your watercloror portrait  scale it down to 90x141: 
 

Anyway:

Just to let you know there is quite an easy method to watercolor any picture in very few minutes. Doesn't need any skill (i don't have any myself), just bit of patience:

1- Cut out the background (if there is any) using your fav photo editor (For example Gimp) and export the picture as PNG with a new name.

2- Open the new picture without background with PAINT.NET (it's a free photo editor, just google it) and apply the artistic effect INK (use the slides to set it until you get the result you prefer). 
Save it.

3- Open the new "inked" picture with Gimp as well as the watercolor background clean that you can find in the first portrait thread.

4- In Gimp select the inked picture and paste it as new layer on the watercolor background using the multiply method.

5- Adjust brightness and contrast and you got your watercolor portrait.



 

I re-post my quide. Try it by yourself, it's easy. (will do all the watercolors as soon as i will have some free time anyway)

I once tried to clean up all the pixels from the portraits, unfortunately I am not good at using the digital editing programs.

In the last 2 days I did nothing else than edit these two portraits in my spare time 😆

Other than that, I'm very grateful for Darkless' help!

 

Isn't it possible to work entirely with Paint.net instead of switching between Gimp and Paint.net every time?

I leave the black lines cause they look like the original watermarks. If you don't like them you can simply set the ink level (top slider) to 0 or so.
You must use Gimp for 2 reasons: first to cut off the background of the portrait. (with paint.net the cut tool sucks). And second cause with paint.net you can't paste layers in mutiply mode.
