Now AKVIS ArtWork offers three painting styles - Oil Painting, Comics, and Pen & Ink. In the future, the program will learn additional painting techniques.

The Comics effect allows ArtWork users to replicate works of famous comics artists with just a few clicks. This effect reduces the tones of the photo to create an image similar to a poster or a cartoon. Make a comic strip from your party photos or create an original poster.
The Pen & Ink effect creates drawings that appear to be made with ink on paper. The ink color as well as the color of the background can be changed.
A painting is not complete without an inscription. ArtWork offers a wide selection of canvas and artist's signatures to make your painting a finished product, ready to be printed poster-size and hung onto a wall. Make your loved ones a perfect gift of art!
