Re: Creative Interpretations...Cats :-)

Palms... Actually I didn't spend much time on this one...I'll try to remember...

Crop
Duplicate, CutOut Filter (faded) Texture craqleure (faded) Texture dirt (faded) Masked slightly around features.
50% Gray PWL layer to brighten up the eyes.

Maybe a couple other tweaks.. but memory fails.

Cats are "dark" and mysterious to me LOL..

Hey thats not bad. I didn't post my first efforts (blush def on)
If you want to boost the colours a bit try using Cybia's Vivida plug-in (its free and not bad)

Re: Creative Interpretations...Cats :-)

Thank you for your kind words, Peter, they are indeed very encouraging. I can't seem to get the edges right, grmbl...have to practice a lot more. I am off to get that Cybia-thingy now...

Happy Easter to all of you and thanks for playing. I love your work.

You have done well Amica I have had a look to see if you have missed any bits but couldnt find any, It dosnt look like you have over smudged ( you get that when the opacity is too strong )
You have done well I will get round to doing something soon but have to much chocolate to eat ( and 11 to cook dinner for today)
