The Daily Texture for 04/24/2015
Today's Daily Texture is very painterly and filled with the deep, dark tones of autumn, with a splash of light for energy and excitement. I used this texture on both of the bear photos below. On the first image, the bear's background was masked away and he was placed on top of the texture. Then I duplicated the texture layer and placed it on top, setting it to multiply at about 50%. On the second image, I actually integrated today's texture with another one. The water drops on the bear had blue tones, so to tie this into the art, I used Sunlight Behind The Storm as the base texture. I paid careful attention when masking to allow some of the rocks surrounding the water to show in order to ground the bears. Then I placed today's texture on top, setting it to overlay and desaturating it a little.
