I think it was Christmas when I said that I have been playing with various backgrounds in photoshop and now it is February!
I completed this Tiger in pastels from a lovely photo by Gary Jones from Paint my Photo.
I took another photo of a very distressed piece of paper and then grunged it up a little more using various techniques. Then I played using two different layers and overlaying the grunged background over the top of the tiger. I found a pretty good tutorial on Youtube for this....I went on to play with the styles and eventually chose burn for this one.
I quite like the effect although my tiger on the drawing pad looks a little dull now ~ I think I may have to give him a background for real!
Meanwhile, I only have one more week on my course left. We have covered many things which has been very informative and enjoyable. However, with so many things ongoing, I do seem to be losing track of time!
