Anyone for an Iguana?

Took this last January on Roatan in Honduras. Used it for my (almost) first foray into AHB, following Palms' tutorial. Seemed only fitting to add it to the collection of frogs and turtles - I have a couple of snakes if anyone's interested

This is not a stipple.

Can't believe how much detail was available that only a few layer enhancements and Flaming Pear's Mr. Contrast was all that was need to do this one.

Thanks for your comments Lurch. Decided to do a brick and mortar this time. Here's the complete rendering (attached is a crop).

Re: Anyone for an Iguana?

Lurch great subjects and shot, your painting is super too

unfortunately though i have been in a messing around mode and this is the outcome

ahb ( messed around with the brush settings )
Sketch ( used a action to remove the white )
and a texture layer ( hope your smiling there Swampy )

Really like what all of you have done.
I added a frame then buttonized inside the pic.

Re: Anyone for an Iguana?

lkroll - You can always be counted on to find interesting approaches!

palms - Thanks for your kind words. Your version is great. You should be in a messing around mode more often (not sure that came out right; it's not implying that your 'normal' mode isn't great too . . .)

summerz - Another novel approach. I wouldn't have thought of buttonizing.

AHB (using Trimoon's neat new brushes) and some impressionist and masking.
