A Guy Named Butch by dougf

Currently unavailable for purchase

I came across this roadside memorial and thought long about Butch and who he was, whom he loved, whom loved him…

Here is my tribute to him.

This one’s not for sale.

Couldn’t do that to Butch.

    Great job Doug, how do you get that textured look to your shots mate?

  • Thanks Jason.

    I googled up some Photoshop textures and paste them into a new layer, then play around with “blending” them down and using the eraser tool, dodge and burn.

    I do the dodge and burn and other filters on both the new layer and the base layer.

    I just started with this and ams still feeling my way around with it. Hope this helps Jason.

    Beautiful memorial to an unknown stranger. All over Wisconsin wherever people have been killed in vehicle accidents you’ll see a memorial such as this. It’s a stark reminder about being a responsible driver and not to drink and drive for this could be you or the innocent victim from your actions….

  • Thank you sir.
