Caturday Art: Sketches and Glows

Mom was having so much fun with this week’s Caturday Art project that I had to make her stop so she could go to bed!

Here’s the original photo.

She decided she wanted to try a colored pencil sketch this week. She used the colored pencil filter on a duplicate layer. Using luminosity on this layer made the color pop through more from the original layer underneath.

  1. Your mom is so good at making Caturday Art!! Both pictures are just wonderful!

  2. Yes I like the glowing edges one too. Aside from the pawsome effect on you, it also makes the background look like some outdoor night scene of a pine tree covered mountain with a touch of moonlight….or that might just be me and the ink blot thing again…mol

  5. that is catabulous! There is a drawing technique, where you leave the background white and paint black on top…then you take a caligraphy pen and “draw”, that is what this reminds me off.

    You started with a gorgeous photo, so it would be hard to go wrong. The pencil sketch is very cute. I like all the soft colors. The glowing edges effect is striking. I think that’s a very special rendition of you.
