Jan 21: 366-21 Sherpa

For today’s texture (and example), here is a lovely sherpa dog bed.  It’s a fitting one to offer today:  it is COLD here and I know any of the dogs would enjoy cuddling up in the bed itself!

Texture 366-21 Sherpa Dog Bed

I had a dog come to the set rockin’ her bling this week (she has more jewelry than I do!).  While I like the composition of this image from the shoot, the actual photo itself is a bit (y)aw(n) inspiring for me.  I don’t know if it’s all that pink, if it’s the softer focus, if it’s the flatness of the pink blanket she’s posed on.  I pulled up  this photo and decided to give the blanket a more plush, luxurious look to match the tone set by the diamonds and pearls.  I used a hard light overlay  and used eraser at 100% over the dog and necklace, 50% in the back between her legs and 10% to the upper right, to heighten the way the light was falling on the scene.  I also used a perspective warp to make the sherpa texture “lay down” into the set.  This still doesn’t make the image one of my best, but it DID achieve my goal!

Please do post links to projects where YOU have used this provided texture and tell us how you tweaked it to fit your needs.  Feedback is welcomed – leave comments and questions and I’ll see if I can come up with some answers! All textures are available for personal or commercial use. They are NOT allowed to be resold or to be claimed as your own.  Just click through for the larger size file, right-click that one and save the texture to your own computer.  My sample uses of the texture are not available for any use.

Now – if you’ve gone wild with a texture and just LOVE it … a small donation showing that love sure would be appreciated (but is not mandatory).   Just go to PayPal.com and send your donation to DogBreedz (at) yahoo.com.


Happy Texturing!
