    Hey great work Karen, congratulations:o)

  • Thank you so much Karen – I did this one about 6 months ago – it’s a long time between submission and publication but nice to see it in print. There are two more coming out over the next couple of months too. :)

    Great, wonderful Karen!! I will look for a copy! I’m sure it’s a perfect tutorial and I hope you get a lot of response! The portrait is just beautiful.

  • Thank you so much for your kind comments Arie – this is the third tutorial I have done for them, and to be honest I really didn’t get any referrals or extra work from the other articles, but it’s all good experience, and hopefully someone might gain something from it :))
