i like that, phil

this one is primarily using medhi's 'fur' filter with a bit of a twist in erasing.

Craig's Cooper

Interesting. Of the two I like your first post the best. The second I was a little bothered by the black hairs in his fur.

What to do about Cooper's red eyes. Turn them white or leave them red. Just a question?

Phil I agree with you I liked Craig's first post the best (really cool craig) although i don't dislike the second ! !

I also pondered on what to do with the eyes but decided to leave them red as i do believe ( cat lover here) that some breeds of dog do have the red eyes

If either of you is after the "realism" angle:
Cooper has brown eyes with the "white" areas slightly red...
The amount of redness depends of how excited he is...

phil, palms,

thank you!

both were fun to do. the 'fur' one was really easy to do. used the medhi 'fur' filter on a duped layer, then lightly erased around the eyes and nose to let more of that show through from the original. i think i then copy merged to a new layer and added a bit more contrast and lighting. crop, resize and done.

the second one was such a convoluted mess in comparison, that i wont even try to recreate the steps

i suppose that just proves out that simple is often better

I used Gertrudis Pro for these 2 renditions. Basic workflow was "

1) Went over entire image with a large pastel brush for #1. For #2, I used a large oil brush w/a hatch pattern (last one in drop down list in pattern tool)

2) Then for both renditions I use a smal oil brush on the dog itself. For edges I went back over with mostly transparent (same brush). Then finally went back over carefully with oil brush again to brush back in detail lost from transparent brush.

3) During all of this I had the lightness setting just increased a tad
