Mauricio returns today without his turkey suit. In mid-October he was atop the pool cover one afternoon looking particularly cute. I snapped a few photos of him. The one I am using today for art is from that photo shoot.
This is the photo I used for the basis of my art. I selected this photo as I thought all the shadows and various textures would make the creation more interesting.
My first addition was the pen art effect from LunaPic. I almost stopped with just that, but if you know me, that’s just not my MO.
My next step was to add the Crystal Palace filter using piZap. That added some splashes of color around the edges. Then it was back to LunaPic to add the water effect and the “Splash” art. After adding “Splash” I cut back on that effect by about 50 percent to get some of the original pen look back. The border was from Picasa. That gave me the art you see at the top of this post.

Mau hopes his lovely wife Allie (Friends Furever) enjoys seeing him again for the second day. He’s sending her oodles of love and smoochies.
Kitties Blue and I were excited to have so many of you join us last week on the blog hop. We even had some new participants, which always gets us super excited. Did some of you discover them and visit their blogs? Remember, that’s the purpose of blog “hops.” As we do every Saturday, we are giving you a reminder to put on your best smile and join us on the hop tomorrow.
Oh, wowee! That is super duper!
Beautiful art ! Purrs
Your art is most wonderful Mau!
WoW! The art is purrticularly stunning!
We live that you told us how you did it. Its geeky of us, bet we always like to know – especially if the effect is especially stunning!
Nice! I love the color layered on the pen art effect.
Were you going swimming, Mau? We love all your art.
I love the art! And what a cute picture you started with.
I didn’t understand all the steps but I like the results.
Beautiful. Thank you for explaining how you achieve your art. Lovely!
Athena and Marie
I like the finished effect! it does make him look a little wild eyed though.
Wow! It published without going to spam for the first time in months. I wonder if it is because I put my name in instead of Eric and Flynn’s.
I love the art, Mau is so adorable. XO
Both artworks are great, Mauricio 🙂 Pawkisses for a Happy Caturday 🙂 <3
Beautiful art and Pictures. So cute. What do you think of Lunipic and is it free?
Wow! I love all of these. The original is adorable! I love both the beautiful colors and the ink-like drawing. Wonderful! 😀
What a masterpiece you are, Mauricio! We also love how adorable you look in the original photo. Purrs, and happy Saturday!
Oh you look futuristic! Swirly, whirly, and fast as the cosmos!
Mauricio we love the way your furs look in this photo of you – – – curly-whirly and soft! That look in your eyes is so intense – no doubt you were thinking about how wonderful it would be to visit your Allie and give her a REAL hug?? See you tomorrow for the selfies………….
I love the effects!
Wow, These are some really cool pics. I really like the black and white one.
