We’ve reached the final week of our July One Four Challenge, hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me. I have had a lot of fun editing my image each week and have enjoyed the nice feedback from participants on my photo processing efforts. Bengie has been the star this month, and I thought I’d finish off with something a little different – for me anyway!
Week Four Process
I have had fun with this one! I wanted the introduce some brightness and cheerfulness in this last interpretation, to reflect how I feel about having this little critter in our life.
Here is the process I followed:
I cropped the week one image to a square. I then took the image into Sketch Guru for a Gouache treatment and adjusted the sliders till I was happy with the effect.
Back into Photoshop, I played with the surrounds, using the Liquify filter, a tool I didn’t even know existed. Now that was exciting, and transformed the background of the boat behind her into something a little funky. I then noticed her name tag was turned the wrong way so I had to fix that! I used the text tool with the Jokerman font, which is the font we have used for the sign writing on our boat.
You can see the result: a whimsical, painterly and bright treatment. I hope it brings a smile to your face.
Just as a reminder, here is the progression over the four weeks:
As always, your feedback is welcome.
Time to vote for your favourite!
Since this week concludes the One Four Challenge for the month, I am including a poll for you to vote for your favourite interpretation.
Next month, we are taking a break and reviewing what we have learnt. So there won’t be a weekly post, but we will look back at our creations at least once during August.
For now, be sure to wander over to the One Four Challenge page to see what other participants to this wonderful project have done. There are some very creative people amongst our midst!
