This week’s Project 52 fun weekly topic is ‘comics.’  We had a lot of flexibility here to either depict a comic strip character or process our image to look like it belonged in a comic.  I choose to process this image of Jack and Julie as though it was in a comic strip.  I was inspired to look by the work of Roy Lichtenstein, painter and illustrator, who favored comic strips as his main inspiration. And after many minutes (many, many minutes) manipulating this image in Photoshop, I ended up with this!  Julie was recovering from a nasty spider bite and Jack just could not look at her anymore.

That image of Jack and Julie took a little time to do (like forever), so after all that experimenting, I tried another image of sweet Santa’s Little Helper looking at her owner (replaced by a red balloon!). This one went much faster!

Here is a quick screen-cast of how I converted the first image to a cartoon using Topaz Simplify and Digital Anarchy’s ToonIt!    Recommend increasing quality to HD by clicking on the gear at the bottom and going full screen.

This is a blog circle, so you now have the opportunity to see how many talented pet photographers had fun with this theme.  Click on the link at the bottom of each post until you end up back here starting with Emilee Fuss Photography, Sarasota FL.  Have fun!
