Caturday Art - Boys in a Window.

I am taking part in the Caturday Art this week with four versions of the same photo. Two are with Lunapic, and two with Dreamscope.

This is the Moonshine render from Dreamscope.

This is Rugged, also from Dreamscope.

I did this one a few months back with Lunapic and used a basic Lunapic frame for it.

This is also done with Lunapic using several different filters to varying degrees, but of course I had to add about 25% of my favourite Landscape filter to finish it.

This is the original photo.
I have been trying Dreamscope lately but have found the end results are much smaller than they were previously. Probably because they want me to buy the paid for version, but I can't see the point in paying $9.99 a month for something I won't use very often.
I prefer Lunapic because you can adjust how much filter you use and add as many as you want...and it's free!

You can see more art with Athena, the Cat Goddess.

That first one is amazing. We've never quite seen anything like that.

Brian said...

Those are all special, just like those boys!

Laila and Minchie said...

Such handsome subjects to work with!

Lone Star Cats said...

Such handsome boys!

Summer said...

These are all very cool effects, but I have to say, that Moonshine effect is really something!

Sasha said...

They all look very effective. Amazing how a little manipulation can change the whole atmosphere of the photo.

What great effects - that's the perfect photo to add effects to - that Moonshine is magic. We prefer Lunapic too because it's free and easy...!!!

Love, Teddy

Those are all great renderings, but we think #1 is the coolest :)

These all look great, but I think the Moonshine one is just perfect for this week--it is so appropriately wintry! Dreamscope has some really cool filters, but you're right--the paid version is too expensive.

Gemini and Ichiro said...

They are all so nice looking of you two boys.

We agree with you about Dreamscope and Lunapic! We think all of your photos are beautiful.

They all look amazing, miss Jackie. The first one is so COOL, we haven't seen that one before. Dreamscope is crazy asking so much money, I always thought it was the amount for one year. Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend :) <3

Marie Symeou said...

We love those!

We agree. LunaPic is much better. Hope it stays free.

Great effects ! Eric and Flynn were handsome ! Purrs

Katie Isabella said...

And really, I pefer seeing the boys with Lunapic. I think those are very much finer renditions the suit the boys perfectly. The other is just too-too for my taste.

Katie Isabella said...

I have to come back to say I DO like the Moonshine effect from Dreamscape.

Madi and Mom said...

OMCs we love the dreamscope!!!

Marv Marvelous said...

All 4 are lovely but I think I like the last one from Lunapic the best. I too thought the Dreamscope ones were smaller. I actually get a kick out of doing things old school with Photoshop...Alas work will keep me busy until the end of February. I don't think I will get a chance until then.

Those all look amazing! We love LunaPic too...but that Moonshine effect is incredible.

Kitties Blue said...

These are wonderful. It looks as if you captured all four seasons in the various creations. Great work! We like every one of these. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

The third one is definitely my favorite. I haven't tried filters or arty effects though I keep meaning to. I always say this - because it's so true - but your boys are truly something special.

Kari said...

They’re marvelous! I do tend to especially appreciate the ones that show off the boys ginger furs but the Moonshine pic is really amazing. It looks like a work of art that one would see in a gallery. All around fascinating. I love it!

meowmeowmans said...

We love all of them, but we think the Moonshine pic is our favorite. Maybe because it's winter and it just seems appropriate? :)

Big hugs. We always love seeing Eric and Flynn!

Catio Tales said...

We like Moonshine too, for the sheer orangeness of the magnificent Boys,

The Ladies of Beaglebratz Manor said...

Love seeing all the different things you could do with the same photo. Eric and Flynn sure were two handsome kitties.

Jean Neilson said...

We loved all versions of the boys. We think the first picture is mysterious.

John Bellen said...

Even though I wouldn't buy the Dreamscope either, I sure do like the effect here.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

Those effects are nice. The Moonshine is pretty, but of course, we always think Ginger looks best.

Colehaus Cats said...

We agree about not paying for something you aren't going to use very often, but that first wintery photo is pretty enough for a Christmas card!

We love how the art came out. But with such gorgeous models you couldn't go wrong.

Katie and The Katz said...

Eric and Flynn looks so handsome in any art form... love the snow pic.

When the Cat is Away said...

<3 We're so glad that you're keeping up this blog. We were thinking of you at your first Christmas without Flynn :(

LP said...

That's good to know! We will check out Lunapic! Our Mama used to use PicMonkey and it was really fun until you could use less and less options unless you paid a monthly fee. Like you, she doesn't use it that often , so why pay?!

Seville at Nerissa's Life said...

I like those! I like those, a lot. 'Specially the winter one up on top. PURRS.

Cats Herd You said...

Oh, wow, that first one is really something else We weren't familiar LunaPic and will check it out.

Cathy Keisha said...

I love them all but the first one is my favorite since it's been turned into a winter scene. A perfect Christmas card.

Bionic Basil said...

Great art dudes, we just love seeing all the cool effects mew try!!

best purrs

Erin the Cat said...

I have to say that Moonshine is awesome and has a Christmas feel to it that made me smile. The others are a delight but I can see why the cost isn't an incentive. Still we love the one you use tomorrow, and that is magical in our eyes
