Re: Batching Plant

Frank, I love it. What did you do here? And was there anything about it that didn't turn out as you wanted? It reminds me of Russell Borad's wonderful Prairie Sentinel series, so of course I'm wanting to slap textures and clipping masks onto it, but that's just because I like his series so much. Or ...

Re: Jack the Wasp

Wonderful artistic rendering. I would never have thought of bug-art, but this is beautiful. Your color enhancement works well.

It may not be rusty metal but I thought it fit the general idea of the circle of life. Matt pM Exports-3275.jpg Since I pers...
