Got to put the record straight here. I have never complained about "cat-pics", though there are some who seem to revel in them (name/s withheld for safety reasons).
As for how it was done, ask Palms to make a tute on smudging. Though I did add an extra bit of sharpening towards the end and then boosted the colours a little.

Glad you liked it

Peter

Re: Creative Interpretations...Cats :-)

Thank you Amica and Gerry for your kind words, Gerry believe me it is luck

Jordan thank you as well, funny how colours can evoke a style isn't it ? your painter work is coming on (i havent even thought about going down that road )

Was that a thinly veiled challenge??

Now Peter i thought that you knew me better, A challenge wouldn't be "thinly" veiled now would it ! ! !

Now as for a tutorial we have been here before, There is nothing i could add to what is already out there, and i am still learning myself ( picked up another 2 or 3 tips this last week or so) But i do believe that the better way is by having a bash, posting what you have got (good or bad) and asking questions and learning from each other, So i will find a image and post in the smudging rescourses thread ( maybe a day or two due to Easter) and take it from there just let me know if you want human /animal / or flower or if YOU have a image post it there and we will see how we go ( and if you dont show up i will chase after you now that is a threat Peter )

@ ALL: Showed your work to my cat and now he walks around so proud, he never knew that he was looking sooo good.

@ Palms, thank you for your efforts, highly appreciated. If I may suggest a smudging resource I would prefer animals. I will post some higher quality pics so you may choose if you want ro use those.

Animals are fine by me I find them a bit easier (usually) will look for your post
