Hi Guys! We have had really cold weather the last 2 days. It has even tried to snow! Kozmo was outside watching Alex from under the deck steps and Alex got some great shots of him. The yard is pretty much cleaned up so we took it easy today and made some special Kozmo art.
Here is the picture of Kozmo. We were intrigued with all the vanishing point lines of the old deck boards and when we got the photo into Photoshop, we thought we would play with those.
This time we remembered what we did! First we cut Kozmo out of the background in a copy. We added a layer on top of the background layer and made it a Radial Gradient layer, and used a Starburst (brush) eraser to cut a starburst out of the gradient layer with the focus of the starburst on Kozmo's nose. We added the Ink Outline filter to the background picture layer. We then added the cutout of Kozmo on top. And finally, we added a frame.
But that's not all!
For the above, we followed the same steps, except we did not have a filter on the background And for the Starburst cutout, we used the center of the photo. We went to PhotoMania and chose the RetroComic effect (this added the red to the starburst effect). We brought it back into Photoshop and added the black frame. We could NOT make up our mind as to which one we liked the best, so we would like to hear which one YOU like the best.
