CarturdayArt with Athena and Bug Update

Cutout Technique in Photoshop Elements 10

Dark Strokes Technique in Photoshop  Elements 10


Original Photograph
Hi Pals,

Well, which art work do you prefer - the bottom one, which is the original photo or the top photo, which was doctored up in Photoshop Elements 10, or the middle one, again doctored up in Photoshop Elements 10.   We could have gone on and used about 20 other options in Photoshop, but decided this was enough to give us an idea on how the same photo would look doctored up by two different means.  It's kinda fun playing around with this stuff, if one only has the time (says M).

Now for the up date on my swatting skills.   I'm embarrassed to say that I still haven't caught the bug, but I might have scared him off because no one has seen him now for about 4 days and all signs warning visitors of the "bug" have now been removed.    He was a nasty bug, and I'm happy M & D didn't have to be stung by him.  Apparently I at least chased him out of the apartment.

I'm joining Athena CatGoddesses Caturday Blog Hop.   Go over to Athena's blog and hop around to see lots of beautiful pieces of art work.   Athena has a stunning piece this week - go check it out.

We like the dark strokes effect best because it shows up your handsome face more!

We are more into real pictures, but those other 2 are interesting!

I like the third one the best since I am into real pictures too. Good job Mario, getting rid of the bug. You all have a great day and my best to M and D.

Mario, you look handsome in any photo, including all of these! We do like how striking your furs are in the second one. And fantastic job scaring off that pesky, invisible bug!

Brian said...

You're looking darn good Mario! Great job on the BugBusting too Mario, we're proud of you!!!

you done a great job both with the art AND with the bug. Unfortunately TW seems to have been bitten with something. She's coughing sneezing the nose blowing all over the place.

Love the special effects on the "doctored" versions but I really DO like the "original" thing the bestest!

p.s. We had a fly in the house which Teddy TRIED for two days to murder but couldn't....this morning we discovered the fly had passed away from natural causes (or starvation!) without any help from Teddy!
