very nice, Ro. i like it.

and anyone interested in chiggers, see this: http://www.fcps.k12.va.us/StratfordL...es/chigger.htm

nasty little critters. they'll eat you alive (figuratively). we have them around here and i get them regularly in the spring and summer when out working. my dad talks about how to prevent getting them. it involves taping your pant's legs shut and some kerosene and i think one other item (i'll have to ask him again). not sure the prevention isnt worse than the bug.

I started out with a sketch, and then decided to use lighting effects for a different effect.
Thanks for the feedback everyone

Fox, that came out very nicely.

Haven't done any AHB painting in a while, almost forgot my little tricks.
Here's Bob again.
  • AHB, 4 different sized directional AHB brushes.
  • Hard light blended with the textured background.
  • Then a bit of lighting for fun.

A fantastic shot, Janet!

I'm very familiar with bob cats. I have them in my back yard a dozen or so times a year. Your's is a great photo.

In my version I wanted to put this guy in a "studio" setting with a environmental backdrop.

Nice, Ro!

I was in a funky chicken mood (who remembers the dance?)

I do. I do. In fact, I found it on a cd in a discount store the other day and bought it so I could share the silliness with my grown up children.

GREAT work everyone. I'm so glad you are all having fun.

fox,
very nice. would have preferred a touch more contrast, but that's just me.

Ro,
that one is fascinating. i had the distinct feeling that if someone just snapped their fingers, he would move again.

dee dee,
love the lighting and studio look. hate that one tree in the background...too prominent. the one near his eye.

had a go at this also. this was just for fun and probably shld have saved it for halloween

I think I forgot to mention that this cat LOVED me. Nobody else (according to the refuge owner) has ever had this special treatment. Of course I might have been in danger if I had been frightened. But there was nothing but love, as you can well see. Sheesh, does this mark me as a cat lover or what?
