Dark stare
Originally uploaded by ABMann.
This was an interesting photo. To create the black and white I used the channel adjustment tool and set it too 100% red, grayscale. Poe has very light blue eyes, though; having no blue in the gray layer made her eyes completely black. Very creepy but not what I wanted. So, I created a second channel mixer layer at 100% blue channel underneath the first channel mixer. I then painted out the eyes in the mask of the first channel mixer. The result is a great contrast and tone mix in the fur and eyes.

Bears are playing really oddly today.
I should go to the gym but I'm feeling really lazy.

I wouldn't call it a dark stare as much as a haughty one. Perhaps even an Alfred E Neumanish stare.
