Secret Hideout

Secret Hideout

Hey! Hope your morning’s good. I’m doing this as a warmup before I launch into all the work I need to get done (before I crash and have a long nap, since I only slept for 4 hours).

How’d I do this picture, you ask? Picmonkey! People look down on photo editors, but you know what? Don’t listen to them. What matters is making something cool and fun to look at. How you created it isn’t relevant and it isn’t anyone’s place to judge you.

Anyway, so what you do to get this effect is load up your picture on Picmonkey, sharpen it, crop it as you like, and then do a few texture overlays. They have a lot of nice ones! Then when you’re ready, apply a black and white photo filter. The filter will allow you to “erase” where the filter applies to the picture. Just brush over it a few times in interesting spots and bam. You’ve got this effect.

Not so hard to do now that you know the secret, right? But it doesn’t make my pictures any less pretty. How I got there is not important. It’s that I got there. Y’know what I mean?

As my design teacher used to say- “It’s just a drawing.” It’s just a picture! Sometimes you have to get out of the way of yourself–that’s when you start to have fun.
