Thanks, all.

Thanks for the tip, Mea. I went back and darkened the area between the back middle fin and the bottom fins. Also, part of the problem is that my scanner doesn't faithfully reproduce things. They come out a bit lighter. I did some image adjustment on the new version so it is more like the drawing. Still too light?

Great job Steve! I was surprised how well this technique worked when I first used it, and yes, you will use it again.

Very nice Steve. Who is the person standing in the barn?   :)

Looks like Arnold Schwartzneggar (sp??) to me.

Nice work on the barn, Steve.


The fish looks great, too.

Thanks, guys.

Good catch, Jill. Maybe it's Old McDonald. :) It sure is a strange optical illusion. Thanks for pointing it out.

awesome job Steve :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

Just the dark on the tree follows the edge of the house too closely, so add more tree going up and to the left in order to fade the dark out slower O0

Good job, Steve.  I think the frame on the bottom of the open window might need to be angled up, not down.  Regardless, it still looks better than the one I did.

Thanks, Mea. I noticed that also....after I had finished.

I think I'll leave it alone and just mark it down as a lesson learned. But I did get rid of the ghost standing in the barn door. It was creeping me out. :o

It's getting late here in the East Coast. Time for  :sleep:. Talk to you again.
