Sharing some fun... and scrappy challenge later!

I mentioned a few posts ago that I got my new Adobe applications. I blame them for my absence on my blog. I apologize! I'm addicted to Photoshop. I've always loved it. In art school, I would use it for silly things like superimposing my friend's head into the drivers side window of a Porsche or removing blemishes from photos. I've evolved a bit since then -- I think. :)

I'm going to share some of my creations. I've been frequenting the boards for photoshop aficionados and they offer up a great weekly challenge where they post a photo and you have to use it as inspiration for something, anything, using photoshop.

This week's photo from stock.xchange inspired me to add a little bit of alien/lizard-like look to my handsome son. He thinks it's cool. :) (Click on the images for larger versions.)

A little spooky but of course, I'd think he was beautiful no matter what.

I used a few layers, layer masks, warping, lots of opacity adjustments, airbrushing, and color adjustments to create this image.

Oh, and I have a scrappy challenge coming up later today!

Have a great weekend y'all!
