I love how you modernized and combined photos and art here.
43 voters voted. That rocks. Top 3.. same pic. I sense the is gemius in the air *) Very atractive treatment, Funk. Three chops, all great but you put in the extra hours. There's the secret.
Thanks all, it's tough to make a chop look bad with Kristen as the subject. Hits, extra hours is one of the secrets.... I do put in lots on some chops, this one was relatively fast (3 or 4 hours). The main thing for me though, is I can't bring myself to submit an entry until I'm happy with it, and feel it's finished to my satisfaction... the perfectionist in me I guess...good thing you can't see my housekeeping skills though, . I'm only good at some things.
Congrats Funkwood, this image such left me speechless... Very well deserved Gold medal... Congrats...
Yep, 4 hours sounds pretty quick. Hey I managed to get CS2 working and got a Topaz suite 30 day trial that actually ain't crashing. But I don't have Redfield perfectum anymore so try to get similar effects by hand smudging and pushing Topaz Adjust 3 a bit past what it was meant to do. So I'm wrapped up in some expirimental phases which ads time. Last three chops I have done averaged out to about 10 hrs. each. Got a dandy in over at another site and one in the bull pen waiting to pounce on the next freakshow. Have a great weekend D.
Congrats, Funk. Kristen & Raphael would be proud of ya.
