Hi all..

Welcome Shoshanna - loved your version of the children, and also your gallery. I am new to forums as well. Am wondering if you used Painter or Photoshop for the sketch?

Hi Shoshanna:

Let me add my welcome, too, and assurance you did just fine not only with the artwork, but getting it uploaded.

I used to work in Portland and have many pleasant memories of trips to the Oregon Coast. Are you closest to Coos Bay, Port Orford, Brookings or ???

Welcome aboard...
~Danny~

p.s. GR-eat pBase site, too!

another try

this time I put it in an old Painter classic and added original luminosity. I then went into PS and messed with the curves, then did chrome and faded it.

I then played around with the water color brush on Elle's sweater.

Render clouds layers several times, painted over with pattern tool using original as pattern, multiply and overlay blends to get this effect. Added texture.
