Newbie Merry Old Two

Second image from his trip to the UK. Remember that it was just before "Guy Fawkes' Day," in England. For more info on him see this Wiki article.

In 1957 my first trip to England I was there for the Guys day and all the little kids were going around Oxford asking everyone, "Penny for the Guy" with their hands out. This was still in the era of the large penny. As large as our old Silver dollars. Enough about history for now.

Sometimes I can run on, what?

Re: Merry Old Two

I like, I like. You seem to almost always manage to get some depth or texture like in your work. Wished I had the patience to work with the app that you do.

Not that hard Gunner. Mainly FotoSketcher with Oil Pastel Sketch (increased the small brush size). I did amplify the colors (that's not hard either).

Tried to do a watercolor but the compression just killed it. Oh well.

Re: Merry Old Two

@Gunner: I'm a true blue Windows fan and would never go to the dark side And use a Mac, but isn't there something on the Mac called Wine that allows Mac owners to run Window apps?

Re: Merry Old Two

With modern PCs, Virtualization really isn't that bad. Typing this message now in my XP VM (run Win7 64 as main OS and an XP VM Client for browsing for security reasons). I believe not only Wine, but also Parallels for Mac will allow you to run Windows programs.
