More Digital Art Fun.... Meet Otto

More digital art fun.   I started with a photo of this cutie - Otto is a 4 month old miniature Schnauzer that a co-worker brings to the office. At the time, Otto was sitting on my lap at my desk. I took a photo of him with my phone. Later, I transferred the image into iPhoto for iPad app and selected the watercolor feature, then cropped the image.  Saved the results to my camera roll so I could drop it into MyBrushes app where I painted additional background colors and gave more definition to Otto's eyes. Lastly, I signed my name in photoshop. 

Now to use this manipulated image as inspiration for an oil painting :)

Here's the original photo.

Yes, Otto is full of himself :)

    1. Thanks, Rhonda! I'm so itching to break out the paints. Still have to unpack the studio, though.... working full time really puts a kink in my plans!
