One of the responses referred to being a fan of your work. Where can I see it? Thanks. Matt

As I said before I do not have a website, I have over the years as a member Ugly Hedge Hog submitted many images. You probably would have to join to have access the ones submitted at that site. As I understand past submissions are all archived. Thanks RBorud

We look forward to seeing more of your work here, as well. Thank you for sharing this one, but as you can see, it only whetted our appetites for more...

I love this and hope you might tell us more about your process and consider doing a tutorial with us to explain something about this.

More please! S-

Hi St3v3m Thanks for your comments. as to the process, that is hard as they all were not done the same way. Each was done based on what I felt I was going to do with it. I usually worked in a couple layers ( they varied from 2-6 ) and added backgrounds that came from everywhere. Many I purpose shot or had collected over the years I actually have hundreds. obtained many commercial ones as well. I would place them and use erasure brushes to remove the parts of these layers that were not pertinent to the image. To the individual layers add or subtract various things like color, intensity, contrast. texture etc.. Many had various kinds of vignettes I used.
I would close each session in PSP files as they are lossless and put away until the next session. No not PSD but PSP files.
I hope this gives you some help, and as gift for asking and for Thanksgiving I wll include another one. Thanks RBorud

I haven't done any compositions yet, but feel like I understand the process now and love how simple it seems. Thank you so much! S-

S- I am glad you feel some direction on this, I think we spend too much time and effort on chasing the next nirvana and looking for the perfect button to make us the perfect artist, guess what, I am not sure it exists. I find it more productive to thoroughly learn what we have or at least stay with one thing long enough to get off the constant uphill learning curve that can sometimes leave us frustrated. Good Luck Thanks RBorud
