Er, I'm not sure if this is where this goes.  I know that I don't think this is art, but this is where most of the photography stuff is, so...  Anyway, I was looking for something else on the interwebs when I stumbled across this pretty awesome tutorial:

http://www.melissaclifton.com/tutorial-popart.html

I decided to try my hand at it and I love the results.  It's the first semi-difficult thing I've done in Photoshop.  Previously, I've only made stencils.  So, here's the first one.  I did this one for my sister.  This is a picture of my niece with her dad.



Here's the original photo:



I should probably explain the caption, heehee.  I told my sister that it looked like my niece was thinking "Daddy, you so crazy" and I asked her what's something that Shawn (the dad) says to Sophia (my niece) to make her laugh.  She said that he always says 'I'm hungry for pork belly'.  And sopapilla is one of Sophia's nicknames.  A sopapilla is a Mexican pastry (we're Mexican, as is Sophia's dad) and it's pronounced so-puh-pea-yuh, in case anyone is wondering.  My sister said she's going to get the finished picture printed on a pillowcase for Sophia Smiley

And this is one of my 5 year old son, Sebastian. 



Here's the original photo:



I told him to do some kung fu type moves and this is what he did.  When I was done with the picture part, I asked him what he thought it should say and he said "I will destroy you...even if it means risking my life!!!".  Uhhhhh, he watches a lot of anime-what can I say?  So, that's what I put as his caption.

So, what do you guys think?  I think it's pretty cool, but I know it's pretty amateur compared to most of the photography stuff I've seen on Craftster.

This is VERY cool!  I love what you did & don't you dare undercut it... both are fantastic.  What will you do with them now?

My sister said she was going to make a pillowcase with Sophia's and Shawn's on it.  I think with my son's, I'm going to do that thing where you can use an inkjet printer to print onto fabric (like this: http://h71036.www7.hp.com/hho/cache/344435-0-0-225-121.html) and then I'm gonna cut it out and applique it onto a shirt for him.

Yeah, sopapillas pretty much always sound good Smiley
