      • Excellent chop Xaos. Congrats on gold. You've made it look so simple bringing your sources together. Thanks for this piece.
      • Congrats on the gold Xaos.Deserved Gold....
      • Very nice.... Hey, Xaos, got a question, did you already have the bridge and the city sources in pre-treatment phase or did they come like that. You're after may heart, man, love the color work.
      • Thanks FW, Pree, Kratos, Rkay, John, Berdulano, HiT, Slixter. HiT- The city and bridge were in phase. I got lazy and copied the treated layers over to the source doc from the W I P art.De saturated the original files and went back in and tinted along with layers and opacity settings. Final image before it was flattened had some 28 layers including adj layers, level , selective color, etc.
      • Ahhh, cool. I figured as much. I sometimes start on a source and forget to save the original and ...well, same thing 28 layers sounds about right for a fine epic piece. Did one a while back that was like 80 layers and swore off that lunacy for a while hehe. Thanks for the breakdown, cheers, again, an excellent chop
