The first step was to clone out the audience in Photoshop - to focus attention on the two main characters and remove unwanted distractions.

Next I imported this image into Corel Painter where all the 'painterly' brushwork and textures were applied.

Finally the layered image was imported back into Photoshop for retouching and to adjust saturation, brightness, contrast and masking.
