Llama

OK Not what you expected but have fun anyway.

Mine was done with basically lots of blurring with noise reduction, sharpening and more blurring with the blur brush, the cut out filter and more blurring, hue and sat to get the tones right, ehhh - "Oh yeah" - more blurring (but away from main edges)


Sorry I can't think what else, its all blurred.

Peter

Enjoy

Re: Llama

Nice one Peter, and yes i thought the other llama, what i absolutely love about this photo is that he has trainers/sneakers on it just seems at odds with his position
you have got that look of satin again on his robes

Used the ahb and a emboss layer on this one

Ah yes the trainers, I was wondering wether to change them.
The satin effect is what I was trying to reproduce (not completely with this one I think)(still trying)

Many appologees forgot to say like yours, nice texture, did you add a mask filled with difference clouds to fade the effect?

Re: Llama

Exotic image -- so tried "exotic" look -- masks using threshold, and gradient textures, plus tweaking to taste.
