Filter & Effect Kitty


This is the practice we did today using the blending effects, selection tool, and layers. We were instructed to create a piece using a photo and to incorporate selections, filters, and gradients. Mine was pretty fun, I used the selection tool to select the kitty and create a shadow by filling the selection with a grey to transparent gradient and transforming it. Then I selected the kitty again and edited the selection in quick mask mode using the mosaic filter to create the square effect. I did this a few times, getting larger each time, then filled each selection with the same gradient at different angles. Finally, I used the vertical type tool to write “meow” and put a white outer glow on it and made the actual type transparent.
