Suffering For Her Art


TW took this stunning reflective photo of me but it looks a little grainy. She tried to get a close-up using just natural light. You ruined it, Woman! How to save this photo? Here’s an idea. We could make it part of the Caturday Art Blog Hop sponsored by Cat Goddess Athena!

The PhotoShop sharpen filter didn’t help so she used an Inkwell action, turning it grayscale and muting the background. It was looking better already but was she satisfied?


No. She was feeling ambitious. She was inspired by all the cool things that she’s learned from Sparkle’s human and decided to play some more. After all playing at the computer was so much more fun than playing with ME.

She brought the photo into an online photo editor and cartooned it as you see in the first pic. That still didn’t satisfy TW. Back in PhotoShop, she combined both photos with the cartoon at 33% opacity (center). It needed color. Even though blue is my color, she wanted to use an Easter color so she chose purple. To get a watercolor look, she used the magic wand to select parts of the background to fill in with 60% of the chosen purple. (Don’t tell her that she missed one slat of the vertical blinds.) By now, I was biting her pant legs and poking her through the back of the chair. You’re through here, Woman. The Cat wants attention!


But she wasn’t through. It needed a nice frame.

Personally, I don’t see any difference. What do you think?

  19. Wow, your Woman has really stepped up her efforts, hasn't she? These are fantastic! Of course, look at what she has to work with, right?

    Your Pop yelled at you?? I can hardly believe it. Did your peeps have some sort of weird personality transference thing, or what? Thanks for visiting me last night. I'm still sorta lonely though....if you know what I mean.
