Thank You!

I will take you up on that help!!! Yes i have Photoshop CS and I know my way around pretty good. The Painter 8 I purchased about a month ago. I have read and watched most of the tutorials on the internet. I want to do portraits for our photography business. I of course love to do this. My problem right now is the face. I tend to want to smudge it too much. I get the darks on the light and cant seem to get it back to where i should have it. I need help with the face. Just the little bit i got to read the forum yesterday, I felt i improved. It seems everyone wants to do outlandish stuff, monsters and weird stuff on most of the paint forums. I just want to get good at painting portraits. The ones in this thread are the exact art i want to produce. I love the little boy. I think the face is my biggest problem. I want it to look painted but still look like a china doll. I will be stopping by and subscribing to this forum. I am a sponge for this information. Thanks for being so nice. I immediately felt this was people who were willing to help.

Very cute. The foto holders really add a nice touch. How did you do them?

BTW Blaine turned five years old a couple weeks ago. My son went to the "bowling"/pizza party. It was a hoot.

That's what I like to hear .....kids having fun. My grandsons (2 x 9 year olds) enjoyed the same treat for their birthdays too this year, great fun isn't it?! The tabs are one of the preloaded picture frames with PSP. Thanks for posting the photo, he's a handsome wee laddie.
