Really. Because this time, the painting incorporates actual photo texture. I applied it to my toad’s skin, his robe, shirt, hat, and collar. The above three pictures show a progression. The first is the original image, as seen in my blog post, “Fancy Animals.” The second image shows edits I made following a critique by Chris Oatley, and the third finally implements the added texture.

And here’s the final piece. Enjoy!
