Did I hear a call for a cat? :)

Maybe I am mistaking, but I believe Peter complained in another thread that we never have enough cat pics....

So here we go....

That's one serious Cat. <grin>

Played with the image in PSPv9 prior to running through DAP - Pastel template. Than back in PSPv9 for a few additional tweaks.

Thanks for the play, Amica

Cats rule, dogs drool. Made a few adjustments and then used Impressionist for a paint effect.

Thanks for playing, my friends. Sweet renditions by all

Lyle, that has a sort of sinister touch
Gene, soft and lovely color mix
John, that's too funny

I entitled this creation "Indifference". Two reasons. First, desated a layer, then inverted it. Placed it over the original and used the Difference blending mode. Anybody get it? Then, secondly, the best cats who ever let me share their space had "indifference" perfected to a fine art.

Nice one Veralisa, it really brought out the eyes and did a nice job with the hair. I tried to follow your effect and the hair came out about the same, but the eye and nose color changed. I must be doing something wrong.

Tired again and the eyes came out right, but the hair has white highlights instead of the black like yours.

Hey John, thanks for the comp...tiny secret here re:eyes & nose: they've been selected from the bottom (original) layer and brought up to the top of layers. Eyes put on an adjustment layer for hue/sat. After flattening, burn & dodge a bit around to blend in a bit better.

Thank you again...you made my day!
