Add for a challenge, this baby zebra was treated to two grunge layers by Clive Sax. The background layer had a radial blur filter added to it, then the zebra was sized and positioned. Next the top layer was added, mode set to soft light and a paint daubs filter applied using a dark rough brush. This layer was then set to an opacity of 82%. Finally I erased some areas of the texture from the zebra so he didn’t look too dirty and dingy (eraser set about 38%)

Best thing was the discovery of the treasure trove of textures on Flicker. Thanks hosts.
