This is an image I took of Patches one of my wild cats now in my home. I altered it in many ways using both the programs Gimp and Picknic. First I enhanced his eyes lightened them and the nose color, then I added a texture, then painted and outlined the eyes, then added the weave effect then lightened again. There may have been other steps but as I am new to this I have forgotten them, LOL.
I liked the effect hope you do as well! :)
The original image is titled “Where I lay my head is home”.
