Earlier this year, I joined the Artify Your Cat Instagram contest, in celebration of Cat Art Show LA. Participants had to use one of three iPhone apps to “artify” a cat picture, and then post it on Instagram.
I picked out a few photos, played around with the different apps and posted several of my efforts. I didn’t win, but it inspired me to continue experimenting.
The blog hops Feline Art Friday from Kitty Par-TAY and Caturday Art by Athena and Marie give me reasons every week to test out a new tool, to try a new aspect of Photoshop Elements I hadn’t used before, and to have fun.
I’ve learned so much since I first started artifying my cat that I decided to go back to one of the photos I submitted to that contest–one I was never completely happy with–and see if I could improve upon it.
The result is below:
You can see the original version–and the other entries I came up with–in the story I posted about the contest.
Below is the photo I started with.
Today I’m participating in both the blog hops mentioned above. Be sure to stop by and see all the pretty kitties–and other animals–featured.
