Snow Leopard

Something to play with from http://www.sxc.hu/photo/772998
I kind of overdid the fur on this one but I like it.

Re: Snow Leopard

not sure if he still looks like a snow leopard (bit dark )

Re: Snow Leopard

Palms your first pic and Swampy's should go on the wall. Excellent.

Re: Snow Leopard

Hi Joe,

Nice photo!
For retouching I prefer a more natural approach:

Have fun!

Re: Snow Leopard

Thanks for sharing, Joe. Your fractalus application maybe a bit overboard, but I like it too
Palms, even though a bit dark, I like your first a little better than the second. Really nice.
Lyle, that is a very artsy effect, like that, very well done.
Swampy, nice soft look, lovely.
I gave it a quick try with some sketch and Vivacity and color tweaks. Not much time, have to test my new screen

Re: Snow Leopard

Nice find Joeven, I agree a little OTT with Frac, but not bad.
And hey you didn't flip it!!!!
