The Daily Texture for 02/15/2015
Shades of Gray
Today's Daily Texture is a versatile one, despite its lack of color. It's perfect for pairing with your darker subjects featuring black and/or gray tones. In fact, I created this texture specifically to use with this black Giant Schnauzer from the Spirit of the Dog Collection. I had tried the dog with a variety of other textures, but nothing was giving me the look I wanted for this dog, who had some warm light on her face and neck. This texture is filled with shades of warmer gray, which really become apparent when using the texture as an overlay layer. After masking the background away from the dog and placing her on the original texture, I duplicated the original texture and placed it on top, setting it to overlay at 100%. This really accentuated the light around her head and neck, and brought out the warmer tones in the texture to match the warmer tones in the dog's fur.
