TechniqueS. Plural. More techniques going on there than you can shake a stick at. If you search on "Calvin Hollywood," you might find some helpful tutorials.

You do not need a to be a painter to do this but it does help as it has a lot of work with understanding light and artistic painting . It can be achieved with lots of practice . I mean years of practice . There is no one tutorial that is going to give you the answers . You would need to do lots of research and online tutorials and also trial and error to get that far with it . It cannot be achieved merely by using brushes , you would need to know how to draw in hair possibly and as you can see it is a whole different skirt etc etc ...Plus making the new background look believable even when it is a painterly type effect . Tones,colors,shadows,hair, etc are all to be learned when doing manipulations of this sort ...and you can always ask the artist themselves what exactly they did . I doubt they will give you a list but an idea .
