As I mentioned in last month’s Captain Kimo Newsletter, I said I was changing my watermark to something more appropriate for my needs. However I didn’t explain in detail why I made the change.
Here’s Kogi after a long walk around the neighborhood. I used Topaz Simplify and Topaz Clean to create the artistic paint brush look. The smudge tool in Photoshop was also use to add the extra artistic effect.
Video tutorial that covers how I create frames for my photos like the ones that I present on CaptainKimo.com.
Here’s my second attempt at painting Kogi from a photograph. I’m still working out some kinks but I think it’s coming along better.
