Congrads on the Bronze Cup,U have come along way, UR best yet, me favorite one.
Thanks Nanny,Steve,NewsMaster and Ho.I appreciate it Duane,it's been a long process to winning cups.I just keep plugging along and trying different styles out.Some work,some not so much
Great chop Andwhat. You are really coming along. I clearly see you are trying your A55 off. That is the game, keep throwing stuff out in different styles and see what sticks. I have found about 5 styles now out of thousands of these things that seem to have good general appeal. It really is a long process. This chop is excellent. One or two technical things would have made is impossible to beat. So at the risk of turning you into a major cup grabber, here is a little golden tip. The main trick is in finishing the fur edges. This can be done by setting the brush size to 2, and strength to 100. Then carefully pull on the fur, staggering various lengths all around the edge of the merged image. Note it is important to do this as a last step once you have merged layers. This is a major technical technique that will seriously change the entire believability of animal chops.. Also works on human hair. Anyway, you look like you are ready to take the next leap, so there -tis my dear. Have fun with it.. I sure do. Congrats on the bronzie and a darn good chopping.. Cheers
Thanks for the advice Hits,I've always looked up to you as an inspiration.Your work is so excellent,creative mind bending awesome .I know there are things I need to work on,like fur and hair as you suggested.I am gonna still experiment and see if I can improve with different techniques.Its been a hit or miss for me,I am not consistent,I think I have a way to go with that.Anyways thank you,Wanderer and Bob.
TY Andwhat. The better we get the more responsibility we have to help others along. That is what I admired about Rain and Funk the most. Ohhh we all have a ways to go. I have been surfing around Deviant and my jaw hangs slack. It is humbling to see the sort of talent coming up in ranks. I study these artists with a degree of abject awe. I feel like an imposter sometimes. Best lessons is eating humble pie and accepting we will forever be students. That is the way I see it anyway. Perhaps, never being truly 100% satisfied is a guarantee we will attain master skills in time because we keep pushing higher and higher. Anyway, there are so many choppers here that have paid their dues, I eagerly anticipate a new wave of Super choppers. It seems to run in cycles that way. Cheers, young lady

Hilarious chop, though I wish to save the rodent. Congrats on the wood, Gummy.
British pop singer-songwriter and drummer Phil Collins celebrated his 60 birthday yesterday.
In the 1970s and 1980s, you could hardly escape his music. Collins has been hugely popular - with 100 million solo records sold and another 150 million with the rock band Genesis. With seven Grammys, two Golden Globes and an Oscar for a hit single in Disney’s "Tarzan" under his belt, Phil Collin's career has been diverse.
Here are some interesting facts about Phil Collins:
* First started drumming after getting a kit for Christmas when he was just five years old.
* He continues to live in Switzerland despite divorcing his Swiss third wife Orianne Cevey, so he can be close to their two sons.
* Collins is a huge hit with the black community - the world's biggest urban stars clamoured to perform renditions of his tracks on 2001's Urban Renewal, including Brandy, Lil' Kim and Kelis.
* Collins can only play the drums now if he tapes his sticks to his hands - because years of playing have damaged the nerves in his spine.
* He was an extra in The Beatles' A Hard Day's Night - one of hundreds of screaming teenagers during the TV concert.
And here's a quote from Phil Collins: "You know, a song is like a kid. You bring it up. And sometimes something you thought was going to be fantastic, by the time it's finished, is a bit of a disappointment."
Happy 60th Birthday, Phil!
