Photographic Digital Artist and Instructor, Story Art


For centuries, artists have been humanizing animals, placing them in people-centric situations (like dogs playing poker), but before Photoshop, it was impossible to do this photographically (unless you dressed your pet in clothes and took a photo). Join renowned photographic digital artist Karen Alsop as she showcases Photoshop compositing techniques for creating complex anthropomorphic art in which animals take on human behavior like pigs flying, a bull in a china shop, and more. Refresh your compositing skills while seeing how Karen’s artful composites come to life. View this work online at Story Art.
