Hi Joe, I used illustrator to draw the lines, then took it over to photoshop and colored it.
Drawing in illustrator is a lot easier for me than using the pen tool in photoshop.

Looks like Doug needs to add stained glass art to the RetouchPro products.

Excellent entries so far! Keep up the great work!!

Hey Cathy. You raised the bar so high that I'm going to sit this one out. Just so I don't embarrass myself. It really looks great.

Joe, Don't do that - just have fun, and give it a try.

Re: April 2010 Contest Discussion

And I feel so jerky...made a mistake sooooo-o-o-o bad I hope I learn a lesson and never repeat it.
After working on the window,two nights, labororiously, let me tell you, when I went to resize it for submission I come to realize it was NOT in a 800x600 proportion. Grrrrr. I'd asked myself several times at the beginning if it was the right size, oh sure I said, why wouldn't it be. Ok, I 'fessed up to being so thoughtless. As long as it teaches me a lesson, all is not lost.
I'll be away for the weekend but hopefully can get in some Photoshop time.

Everyone's image is just too beautiful for words. I did think it a pleasure just to take time and create something...pretty. Great contest this month.

Re: April 2010 Contest Discussion

Here it goes, finally. After I realized the first effort was ill-sized I went back to the "drawing board". Almost halfway through I needed to leave my work on the second one and tend to family. When I came back everything was gone, work in progress, adobe set-up, everything. Apparently my security (Norton) installed some updates and needed to restart the computer for them to take effect. It did and closed down PS, work & all. So, I finished the third attempt and want to get it in before something else happens to it.
