Woof

This isn't suitable for anything but making art. I had to do so much work on it just to get it to this stage...and then gave up and decided enough was enough. Enjoy painting/smudging/etc. this hairy little dog. He's all yours now.

Re: Woof

Definitely enjoyed the play Janet, but this capture has much photo potential too. Wonderful.

Re: Woof

Lyle, nice one. The treatment you gave is a good one.

OlBaldy, you have done a fantastic job on this hairy little beastie. I'm glad you cropped. It redefined the picture in a positive way. And what can I say? The smile is just too cute.

Janet

First of all, I want to thank all for the cool comments. Now to answer you Craig. I did cheat a little in that I used Sharp Control for some pre-processing before adding it as a Top layer to the original and setting the result to Value. I also used Irfanview so that I can use some of Photoshop 5.5 filters (CS2 filters will not work in Irfanview, but my ol' backup directory, which I did not remove, have Photoshop filters that do) Chrome and angled brushstrokes which I blended in for some added texture. Also used a Texturize Script-fu for the canvas relief. Somewhere in the blend, I also used GREYCstoration (I think prior to the Irfanview steps, but I did this yesterday and tend to go on the seat of my pants when I do rendering) to give that smooth look that I like. Also used DCSpecial's 1969 filter selective to amplify the saturation where I wanted it. Don't know why I've been avoiding using CS2 of late. Will need to open it up and do a rendering in native Photoshop soon. lol

Wow Palms; still can't beat a real smudge, but thanks for the comments.

Re: Woof

Adorable puppy Janet! I love yorkies!

Gilbert- wonderful smudge, love the bright background
Palms- FAB, so what did you do different? (my kids saw yours and said it looked like the dog had a bath )
OB- nice job
Lyle- great effect, like how it fades out from the face
Janet- looks great, what did you do?
