Happy Holidays by SofiaERamirez Happy Holidays by SofiaERamirez
Happy Holidays everyone :]

This is my first encounter with transparent backgrounds, so please be kind.

Thank you to *SparkLum for showing me how to keep the background transparency :]


This picture is supposed to be dreamy and mildly "out of focus" as if one were looking through slightly fogged glass... this is to give it an older feel.

For anybody wondering about the spots around his eyes, Monty is a red dapple miniature dachshund...meaning that he has a merle pattern to his coat. Typically, this dappling is hard to see on him, but in this picture, the lighting was just right to pick it up. This is *not* an editing error.


Other Deviations for Reference on Monty's dappling:

Visible


Not Visible

Wish my little guy would sit still long enough for a shot like this, lol.

Beautifully done! :clap:

Thank you very much :] I've been receiving a bit of crap from people because "the dog is not sharp"....because he's not supposed to be.... It's supposed to look a bit dreamy and, since I'm on the topic, I'd like to point out that the dog is, infact, sharp, the areas around him are not.



Anyway, thank you for your kind words :]

you're welcome!
and who cares what they think! I get that it's supposed to be dreamy and that's what I love about this photo.
But if you love it that's all that matters!
you're welcome! :hug:

Thanks, Matt :]

I wasn't sure I liked the original photo...but I kind of did at the same time, you know?

I was tempted to trash it, but I just kept trying different ideas...and in the end...all I had to do was put a border and some text on it :]
