I especially like how you did this one... Painter? or what?

Thanks LegacyArt. Mason's granma must know i enjoyed doing it.
Hi Danny. Thank you so much for the appreciation. The software i used was good old photoshop 7. Thats right!
I'm not sure you want details of technique used, but i'll tell you anyway.
First i prepared a sketch layer the usual way. (desat, invert, g'blur etc) Then i used the photocopy filter on it and increased lightness to get thicker, softer lines. Erased all background noise.This was the base layer. Background layer was on top with a blank layer sandwiched in the middle (set to multiple blend). I used the bckgr layer for reference and eyedropper to pick the foreground colors and painted on the middle blank layer. For the complicated parts eg. squares on shirt, i used the select-color range feature, and edit-fill. Occasionally viewed my work by turning bckgr layer "eye" off every now and then. When finished, i discarded the bckgr layer.
Technique is very similar to what i did in the thread "English Gentlemen" pg.3. The method is described ON THIS SITE.
Hope this makes sense to you.

Red face I changed...

I got a new computer 3 months ago, from the old one which was 5 yrs old,and the old one had only 6 gigs, this new one as 80 gigs, the old one i had the mouse for 5 years so when i got the new one i changed it all over, not a wise move, i have hated the new one really hated it, never would move smoothly, back to the old one i decided to attempt Masons picture in the painter program and this is how it turned out...
