Day 216(10 days late): Benny Photoshop Portraits

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

Today is one of my best friend in the whole wide world’s birthday! I’m working on something else for Whitney that is my present to her, but it’s not quite ready, so I thought I’d honor her birthday with fun portraits of her cat, Benny!

Whitney has always been a cat lover, but her love became much stronger when she met Ben! Ben came from an abusive house where they actually shot him with a bb gun! He was left with one ear and a lazy eye, all of which made Whitney love him and want to have and help him even more! So she adopted him and had her brother keep him until she was done with school and could live somewhere that allowed pets. Now that she is in her own place with a real job, Benny is the love of her life! Now, I am definitely not a cat person, mostly because I’m allergic to them… in fact, for the most part, I really dislike them, but it’s really hard not to love Ben! He’s just the most comical cat ever! Whit’s always calling me with tales of his antics and texting me crazy pictures of him, so I decided that I would photoshop some awesome pictures of Ben that she took, and make them hilarious!!

This first one is Benny walking on the log away from the camera. I thought it would be funny if he was glowing and had butterflies around him! This is particularly comical because I really don’t like butterflies! I mean, I think the can be very pretty in their natural state, but any time I see and item of clothing or jewelry that has those cheesy butterflies, I want to tear it apart! Whit knows this about me, and loves to point out butterflies in everything, so why not have crazy glowing butterflies and raise the level of tacky?

This next one I used the same glowing method and highlighted Ben and his crazy eyes! When Ben gets in his cat fits, he attacks his toys and/or the rug and gets this crazed look in his eye! haha

This last one is more of a nice one where I just cut out the green parts of the photo and pasted them onto a black and white copy. I adjusted the saturation a bit to make it stand out even more!

That shows Benny’s classy side! :mrgreen:

Happy birthday, Whitney!!! Love you!
