Here's my attempt at a sig for Rosie
I worked on the photo at 3x zoom size. I cut rosie out with a magnetic lasoo and then tidied up the edges with eraser and blur tool.
I sharpened up the picture using the 'adjust sharpness tool' and then made 3 layers. One layer I used 'screen' - this gave some colour instantly back into rosies coat. The other layer, I added some saturation and lightness.
I played around with the transparency levels of all 3 layers until I thought I got the best mix.
To sharpen Rose's face up, I re-drew her eye -lid slits with black pencil and blurred them out. I also changed her tougue colour to a more prominent pink using 'replace colour. Her name and her toungue colour are my inspiration for this sig lol
I made the background just from playing with a brush and a background...using then filter gallery and hue/saturation. Filiter gallery wise, I used a few of the artistic effects. I was originally going for a colour background to match her coat (.g. reds/oranges/golds)
Then transposed Rosie onto the background to the right size. Added a drop shadow around her to make her glow and then blurred this in to the background.
When playing the the background hue/saturation, to my eye, rosie really stood out on blue. So I went for that.
Now onto the hard one...Bella and the shadows..dreading this lol
