Pisces, 19 March!

Yes, it is tomorrow.

Well, we are too far away to have fish here in the mountains, and our pond is frozen.

I did not want to use the same fish as Ricky, so I needed to improvise.

I thought I might be able to draw some fish...but...No because I'm not very skilled at drawing.

I was looking for some ideas about photography related to the Zodiac, not the killer, OK?

I saw these pictures with different eyes, and I thought why not just color the eye of the Pisces zodiac and have my colored pencils?

1- Use an app to take the color of the eyes

2- Printed

3-set all the pieces together to create a natural drawing space

4-edited in Lightroom, just some brightening of the lights

5-opened in topaz to give an aspect of cartoons

I originally shot this outside but I liked the way it looked against the hardwood floors better.

Ricky says:

I'm Pisces. And chose to do that. I only had one lure so I took two shots - and a shot of the distress wood in one of the rooms of the house - so there are three layers here to create the image. I enjoy seeing the possibilities in Topaz Studio 2, but rarely use full strength, and also tend to erase and blend one back in Photoshop.
