I have a new digital camera and some software on my computer with which I can do some playing around with digital effects on photos I’ve shot. I’m pretty new at doing this so some of my efforts will likely be pretty lame.

Here’s a couple I’ve played with using, guess who, Dawn as the subject. As always, clicking on the thumb print will load an enlarged print.

After applying the drawing effects onto the photo I reclaimed the photo details of Dawn’s face leaving the shadow with less defined detail.

Here Dawn is doing what kitties love so much, playing with a plastic bag. I went for a coloured sketch effect bringing some of the detail up around the eyes, nose and mouth to draw attention her face.
