Oh that dog! This is my contribution for today’s ds106 Daily Create assignment
Create your headless ds106 portrait.
That is headFULL not headLESS. So I went back to the original photo the icon came from, a shot in my old backyard in Scottsdale
where you might notice that I took the liberty of flipping his head to point his gaze. So I went in and erased his head in PhotoShop:
And started to work the clone brush to fill in the blank spot. But it was a lot to cover, and was looking sloppy. SO I thought why not do some coverup?
Since I see them so often whole editing photos in Aperture on my creaky old Mac, I tossed in a beachball PNG I found out there somewhere on the google.
But it still seemed empty. And dull.
So why not put me?
So I used this photo of little Alan in my backyard in Baltimore, damn that kid looks happy
So now we have me and my headless dog. Whatever that means.
And I also find myself blogging a single Daily Create when I planned to do weekly summaries.
You can’t lose your head over rules!
