Thanks for your nice comments.
Nice depth to your version. Really like the 3d, and heavy brush look.

There's a great body of work here. Just a few that stick in my head--
I especially like what Dan and LonK did with the first image, Steve's version of the second, and Ziaphra's, Kiska's and Swampy's renditions of the third.
I was drawn to the last one, too. I used Artweaver on it, as has become my habit lately, after tuning up in CS2 in which I also added some texture later on.
