    Oh that’s cool. I haven’t gotten that far yet….still on alabama…lol

  • Doing a lot of pick-n-choose Mel. Much experimentation too, since unlike Nick, this texture thing is completely new to me.

    They certainly all look the part and your processing again makes for a wonderful nostalgic portrait

    I love it, have a similar one but from the other side I am doing tomorrow. Just finished the conquistador.

  • Yes I noticed you’d finished that one. I think from this one, I’ve learnt that a heavy hand is sometimes needed to get the desired effect. Previous ones have been more along the lines of “less is more” but they didn’t quite get there.
