Re: Some zoo pics for play

Oh, Peter, love the bird's texture...very rich and warm.
Palms, what a minimalist you are and so totally exquisite.

Okay, Polar Bear was desat with increased contrast, then, Impressionist. That sounds so simple yet I took the long way around, masking, etc, Ok, it's all a learning experience.

Zebras I call Gay Pride and dedicate to my daughter. She & my daughter-in- law have decorated my grandson's room with photographs from their safari and zebras abound!

Connie, eh? Pretty name, Amica.

Peter, I hope you don't give up your sketches, as I truly admire them. Nevertheless you did a great "color" job on the bird. Love it!

Veronica, nice work on the polar and VERY creative coloring for the zebras, nice. About the name, well, I'm not so sure if that's what I would call pretty :-(

Re: Some zoo pics for play

I noticed your post re:Poincare' tut tonight, Lyle, and I thought it was very nice of you to do that. I couldn't possibly in a million years, don't use Gimp, etc, but if I did, it would be fun.

After changing the background,instead of running the bird through Photoshop I decided to have a go at PsykoPainthttp://www.psykopaint.com/. In actuality it felt like I was decorating a cake, squeezing out all that frosting on top. Bird's just oozing icing. And I wonder why I went through so much effort to make a really good mask.
