Re: Jan 2012 Contest Discussion

Thanks for creating the contest, Tpaul. I enjoy all the photo-art threads, but this had the added spice of freebies that made it just that bit more piquent (not that I had any real expectation of winning).

Congratulations, Cathy H. Well deserved. In a strong field, yours was clearly the best, IMO. Are you going to give away any secrets to how you did it?

Re: Jan 2012 Contest Discussion

Thanks everyone it was fun. Now as to how I did it:
I made a new background. Then I removed the collar. Tweaked the colors and contrast in PS. Then took it into a free art program called ArtRage. Here I used the pastels tool on a tracing paper. After that I exported it back to PS and used it as a top layer set to multiply with the opacity knocked down to 70%. I did a small amount of d&b. Painted the eye and whiskers. That was about it. I think it helped that the dog photo was light, but with strong details.
