How did you achieve the effect, especially the background. Was that from another image or did you craft it yourself?

Layer 3 - second copy of background Xero Line Art - Sketch, Tone -10, line intensity 10, monochrome. Applied layer mask painted on mask to reveal layers below.

Hello and welcome, Bonita:

Do you also have Photoshop or Elements or ??? Do big deal one way or the other. Painter is a very feature rich program and has a lot of capabilities similar to Photoshop and in some ways runs circles around Photoshop.

Some folks (like me) use a combination of Photoshop and Painter.

Did you get Painter 9.0 (IX)? If you've not used Painter before I can highly recommend the Painter offerings at http://www.EclecticAcademy.com. The classes are excellent and very reasonably priced.

If ever I can be of assistance, don't hesitate to ask via forum post, e-mail or private message, OK? (click my name at the top of any post to get the e-mail or pm options)

Glad you found us.

~Danny~
