Kitten Therapy

July 6, 2017

I don’t care what anyone says, kitten therapy is a thing. Had the worst migraine for two days. Took every pain killer I had, nothing helped. Two minutes with the cat, and I felt 100% better.

This colorization was built using a series of layer masks. Some parts of the image, such as the skin tones, are comprised of numerous masks. In this case, the skin was colored using a half dozen layers of differing colors, shadows, and highlights. One thing that I didn’t do is fine tune the contrast before I began. If I had, certain areas such as the fence posts on the right-hand side of the photo would have shown better texturing. Additionally, I might not have failed miserably on the ivy in the background (and by “failed miserably” I mean “I gave up”).

Before I started experimenting I didn’t really do any research. I’m honestly not even sure where I originally got the idea to try recoloring something. In hindsight, I probably should have done at least a little research…

Before I begin, I’d like to take a moment and apologize for what passed for a post yesterday. Anyone who’s ever been a victim of migraines can tell you just how difficult they can make it to actually do anything, particularly when it comes to looking at words on a screen. However, I promised I’d get back to the real content today, so here we are!

Not As Easy As It Seems

November 2, 2014

For those of you who are just joining the party, I’m almost a week into a little personal challenge. I’ve always struggled at maintaining an active blog… I love writing, but coming up with the actual inspiration for new posts is surprisingly tricky for me.
