The Cat Came Back…

painterly, painting brushes, cobblestones cat textures digital art topaz impression filters

Much of the processing here is achieved with a new filter called Impression, from Topaz Labs. The variant used here is called Impasto and I used it as a plugin for Photoshop to produce the colourful brushstokes in the lower half  and sides of the picture. I wanted to preserve a lot of the detail in the top half, so a fair bit of selective masking was required to bring out the parts that I wanted to focus on – the cat, sculpture etc. I also imported a texture to give a bit more interest to the back wall area, adjusting the amount with more selective masking.

Texture by Kerstin Frank. Thank you.
