I'm the Kitty----Gotta Love Me

This looks just like my cat....in her favorite pose.

My favorite here is the one above, by VisualEyes.... putting the cat on a bed of clouds was such a great touch. I am learning so much from the ideas and explanations here. My try is just to make a painting, with a whitened background. So here goes......

* * * * * * *
(All is done in Photoshop CS.)

Open the cat image.

Use your favorite methods to touch-up the image before you start. (I used the Patch tool here to remove the distracting gold tag at the cat’s neck.)

Create a new blank layer and set it to Color blend mode. Using a soft brush, paint with black to desaturate the entire background around the cat, using white to correct any errors.

Control click on this layer in the layers palette to select. In the channels palette create an alpha channel from this selection, then choose the RGB channel and return to the layers palette. (Do not deselect yet.)

Next, flatten the image.

Image>Adjust>Levels….. drag the middle slider all the way to the left, click OK. Layer>New>Layer via Copy, and name this layer “White”.

Make background into a layer and then duplicate this layer. Name the bottom layer “Color” and name the duplicate layer “Ink”.

Make a new blank layer, drag it beneath the Color layer, and name it “Pink”. Fill with #CC9999.

In the INK layer, apply Flaming Pear’s India Ink filter (available for $15 at http://www.flamingpear.com/indiaink.html )
Style: arabesque
Scale: 2x
Line: normal
Gamma: invert light
Sharpen: 75
Diameter 28
Screen mode

In the Ink layer…. Multiply layer mode, 80% opacity.

In the Color layer…. Filter>Blur>Smart Blur…. Radius: 91.5, Threshold: 83.4, Quality: Low, Mode: Normal.

In the Color Layer… Linear Light layer mode, 60 % opacity.

Make a new blank layer just above Pink layer, name it “Details” and paint in white details on cat’s face, ears and claws.

Flatten image.

Add a little art paper texture.

A very "twisted" idea. I admire your imagination and ability to visualize the final result. It helps that you have very good compositing skills, too!

furry

I was playing with the Painter8 FurryCloner brush. It made really nice fur for cat. But I thought it would be funny to make the background furry and Tiger not. So, a quick effort here with the cat cloned using Cloners>FineGouacheCloner15. Then I used magic wand to select the (still all white) background. On a new layer with the selection active, I painted everything else with The Cloner>FurryCloner brush. Sorry to the viewers if you were lookin' for something refined.

-Mark
