Here's the pic to play with.

Even though i liked the tiger yes i think this is better still I think you have got it, a word of warning though don't get disappointed if maybe your next image dosnt work that well, that's just the way it is keep practicing and reading, I have been a bit busy lately (what with the holidays etc but we will get round to trying people out )
keep up the good work

Re: Smudging resources

At last here is the tiger and lion both done the same basically
raised the resolution to 200, used usm (200 amount, radius 1, threshold zero) this seems to work for me on the animal smudges so will stick with that for now

smudge brush, tm#23 ( getting to like this brush a lot for furry animals ) strength 40, size mainly 30, ( just incase you dont know but the smaller the brush size (as well as strength ) the more detail in the fur, but also the more time and effort spent )
done the background and then
paint daubs 1, 4, then usm again at around 100 amount and 0.3 radius, this does give a sort of grain effect that i like
Finally a bit of colour tweeking like hue/saturation, oh and dropped the resolution back down for posting !

Re: Smudging resources

Excellent smudges Palms! I like how you desaturated the tiger background. But I am really loving your lion!! Do you mind sharing how you did that?

Re: Smudging resources

Oh! I like that lion Palms! Is that #23 brush your talking about free? I never saw it on his site. Is there something similar in Photoshop's default brushes?

Re: Smudging resources

Palms- I have just gone through all my trimoon brushes, and I can't find #23. Can you point us to it?
(On the plus side, this just forced me to organize my brushes. And I found quite a few I had forgotten I had. )

Re: Smudging resources

Thanks Gunner. But I have those 2 trimoon brushes.
Maybe it's a typo Palms? In the link the brush is #22.

I'm not kidding when I said I organized all my brushes. I literally went through each and every tool preset I have downloaded. Opened each one, one at a time. Yikes! They were a mess!
