Dang Peter you have managed to turn that young chick into an old haggard buzzard that might have just enjoyed a good meal... Good Job!

Thanks for the play! I am honored!

Like the sparkle that you brought out in the eyes Craig. The Van Gogh'esque version's cool too Gunner. Thought I would do a reflections in metal version this time.

Newbie Re: One for Ol Baldy

tried something different this time. I did so many things it is impossible to remember them all. There is probably a very simple method in accomplishing this type of image. However I haven't explored enough yet to find it.

Re: One for Ol Baldy

I used Three Bar Sin gradient for the gradient map to get the metal look. Some other blending and ghosting effects for the reflections. Also blended in a brushed aluminum texture selectively too.
