Here's my entry for this week's challenge --Cowboys. You may have noticed that I have a fascination with the old West...if you look back through my blog or on my Flickr site you'll see both cowboys AND Indians, as well as pieces based on photos from a couple of trips to New Mexico. I just love it.
The photo of this handsome cowpoke was provided for the challenge, and I wanted to raise the level of atmosphere without altering it too much. I used some texture pieces I found as free downloads on the Brusheezy site--there's lots more than free brushes available here-- and a piece of old newsprint I got from Inka. The grungy frame is my own creation, and the rest was done with blending modes and layer styles.
