thank you, Legacy
one of the things i love about this site is the support and feedback from other folks like yourself. i've been on other sites where if you posted something like this, you might get 1000 views, but only one in that 1000 might comment, good or bad. an artist tends to live and breathe on feedback. this is true of performing arts, graphic arts, musical and all the other arts. thus, we tend to be somewhat at the mercy of our respective audiences. so, without any feedback, one can get the feeling one isnt doing anything worthwhile at times...we're having no effect.
with feedback, even if it's a decent criticism, we tend to grow and flourish and get better and continue to produce. and this place is definitely a place that enhances and encourages growth.
so, again, thank you, and to all the others that do the same
This time I decided to link the image since I wanted to show a higher quality than the 100K limit (you can see the file size underneath the link image). I'm still experimenting with brush textures (this one created using Gimpressionist). Hope you all like it.
Side note: I used Impressionist with djrOil24 preset and some other things before this step. I used GIMP's bumpmap for relief texture.
