And here all this time I thought diamonds were a girl’s best friend!!! My Peachie, my muse … listening to every word I say.

This image is a composite, background from CGTextures. Original photograph of Peachie was done with the Nikon D40x and the 18-135mm Nikon lens. Peachie was entirely hand-painted digitally with the Wacom Intuous 4 tablet in Photoshop with brushes from Obsidian Dawn.

    She’s heart-shaped, Poopsie!! Did you see that? The way she is sitting there with her little head tilted to the side… she’s sitting in the shape of a heart! Her little paws form the bottom point! It’s adorable!!

  • Clever you!!!! Yes, you caught the “heart”!!!! Well done!!!! I actually shot this quite some time ago … basically just a snap .. she was sitting on the sofa. Not what you’d call “photography” … but I’ve always loved it and have wanted to know enough about PS to do justice to her. The heart shape that you noticed is what really made this one unique to me. So glad you saw it, too!!!! Hugzzzz!!!
