  • Look through the painting style plugins. It's basically blurring or smudging but likely done via a plugin. – DA01 Jan 11 '13 at 16:25
  • Is there any such plugin / script-fu ? – Shanthakumar Jan 12 '13 at 6:42
  • This seems to be done with Oil Painting Effect in Photoshop With Pixel Bender. Is there a way to do this in GIMP.link – Shanthakumar Jan 14 '13 at 11:39
  • If you google "GIMP Oil Painting" there are several results, a few of which mention plugins. – DA01 Jan 14 '13 at 15:17

Got it :) its done with G'MIC plugin for GIMP .

'G'MIC => Enhancement => (Anisotropic) Smoothing'

This filter could do a similar job with several iterations, a big tensor and gradient smoothness and big amplitude.
