thank you Minnie, About my workflow... my desire is to be "more deliberate". That is - with each step I must mentally have a goal in mind, a problem that needs solving, and a plan to deal with that problem. Then I focus and attempt to beat up on that aspect of the image. If the image improves, I must in my mind be able to account for "why" it improved. (what did I do right, what did I do wrong). Then, rinse and repeat.

I want to "see" better, and I want to "fix" better.

That is so cool Piet !!! I'm gonna have to learn the technique for some future projects.

Thanks Dave, I just stumbled onto an online course (mostly free) at www.ctrlpaint.com that teaches both photoshop and art/drawing, but what is cool is that it is a series of 5 minute videos that actually look like they are in the proper order for good skill building. I might learn how to draw yet!!! I am a great believer that diverse skills when integrated, build on each other.


Thanks for the info with the link Piet !!!

Hi, Meet Benedikt Hellhorn - Evil Warrior, Reaper Miniature available at Amazon for ten dollars and fifty cents. From the bottom of his boots to the top of his helmet is almost exactly one and one half inches of pewter - he is pretty heavy.
