I will be showing how to take a regular photo and turn it into a painting like portrait with eyes that will follow you around. this was sparked by a dragon paper craft I saw in which the head of the dragon would appear to follow you no matter how you moved it would follow. I have replicated that with my slime monster and now this portrait which will be showing you how I did it. It's very simple and i have included a pdf with the eyes and portrait.

all done with photoshop cs6 and pepakura.

You will have to have a straight on portrait of this will really work; start by using the pen tool and erasing the back ground, do any color curves or layer adjustments needed, and make two duplicates of the original layer  .
