Mother and Son in Words

I was browsing the web for Photoshop tutorials and I came across this image treatment. The tutorial is on youtube and it is done by logongod I really liked it and decided I wanted to try it. The image that the tutorial used was a portrait so I dug into my files and found this one of my daughter and her son. I might like to try something like this on a photo of something other than a portrait and see what can be accomplished.

I used the process that was in the tutorial and added a couple of my ideas.  I added a gradient to the background.  The gradient was the same color used in the text of the image. I distorted and blurred the background and gave a torn border to the image.  The used words that I associate with my daughter and grandson.  I hope you enjoy!

Just finished “The Majestic Lion”.  It is a photo of lion statue that has been digitally altered.  If you like it, let me know.  The lion looks proud and strong.  It gives me the feeling of power and awe.

This digital painting is of a photo I took while visiting my son in Norway. The scene is in the Maihaugen Open Air Museum in Lillehammer, Norway. Amazing how this picture can bring both joy and sadness. I think that is why I painted it. Missing my son today, thats the sad part. Remembering the fun we had, thats the joyful part.
