Photo: Portrait of a cat

I felt like being extra creative today, and spent way too much time trying to find an app that would help me turn a photo into something that looked painted or drawn. I was pretty sure Photoshop Elements would do it for me at the click of a button, but I couldn’t get it to work. So I settled for an iPad app called ArtistsTouch.

The result is this halfway decent “painting” of Athena. I like it.

Portrait of Athena, cat

To create a “painting,” you upload a picture, and the app turns it into a blueprint–that you can then “paint,” choosing the medium, brush size and other elements.

Here’s the original I was working from.

Today I’m joining the Caturday Art Blog Hop, which is hosted by another cat named Athena. To view her work–and others, go to her site, Athena, Cat Goddess.

    The original is just as pretty as the art one…beautiful kitty…

    • Thank you. Athena was in the right place at the right time–and the lighting was perfect. It felt like the right photo to play with. Thanks for compliment about Athena. Now she’ll be even more full of herself–if that’s possible. 😉
