This place has gone to the dogs!

Well, not this forum, but THIS place: A pet resort and spa in California (where else?).

I took this grab shot when I saw one of the dogs peek over the counter and say (in a Scooby Doo voice), "Ran I Relp Rou?"

Post-processed with various PostworkShop Pro effects.

Notice the human treats (chocolate) as well as doggie treats on the counter. Depends on who's on duty at the time!

Looks very friendly and helpful - I'd hire him to work at the front desk anywhere.

Re: This place has gone to the dogs!

I got such a kick out of this. Minutes before a whole bunch of dogs were running around back there either on the way in or out of the yard, along with one of the employees. Then it got quiet all of a sudden and there he was!

Must always have a camera ready...

Re: This place has gone to the dogs!

Looks like your new toy's getting you to post some fun now Plugs. Cool to see you here too. I'm almost using PwS daily now (how cool is that?). Even though I didn't get your discount , I have no regrets.

Any idea when version 2 will be released?

Re: This place has gone to the dogs!

I do appreciate your heads-up's Lyle!

What are your favorite PWSP techniques? I'm tending to start with a painting preset, followed by drawing, then blending them.

Awhile back I saw on their forum early 2011 for version 2, which was supposed to be a free upgrade due to the delay ;-).

Re: This place has gone to the dogs!

I still do some preprocessing in GIMP (my crutch), and do copy paste into PwS and do really like Expressionism 1 preset (reduce both brush sizes to taste) and then copy/paste back into GIMP for some additional tlc (easier to do it this way for me though the flow is a little convoluted). I also sometime like blending Acanthus Leaves (a free download from their website), but not all the time. The afore makes a pretty cool oil rendering. Adding Acanthus helps for certain renders too.

Convoluted is OK! It's fun to combine effects from different apps and plug-ins. No law against it.
