The Daily Texture for 10/02/2015
Since the texture/background "On Top Of The World" has been so popular, I decided to create a similar one with some different color tones. Today's Daily Texture is "Woodbark Ridge", and it features more of the brown and golden tones. I used this texture with a Zebra photo taken at our local safari park. I masked away his background and placed him where I wanted, and I duplicated the texture layer several times, placing these duplicate layers on top in various layer modes and opacities to get this result.
