Painting Update

Well still working on that image for bowtie's B'day. If you want a sneak peek, you can view it here: http://www.drakkolupen.com/tutorials/painting/mates/matemates07.jpg Be warned, it's a VERY large file. I saved in in poor quality so it wouldn't take up so much HD space, so it looks kinda blobby in the jpg. I promise the psd is a lot cleaner :)

I'm trying to make it look as realistic as a possibly can. So far, I think it's okay. I'm not looking to make it so you can't tell if it's a picture or a painting. I'm not foolish enough to think I'm that good. But I think I'm doing pretty good. For those of you keeping up, this was the 3rd revision of the fur. Yeah, I've painted it three different times now. Each time I just haven't been satisfied with the way it looks. When that happens, I don't bother trying to 'fix it', I just start all over. Takes more time, but I Think it's worth it in the end.

Bow and I are talking about holding an NC Minihowl in September. We didn't make it to MI, and we really need a vacay (especially poor Bow that works his ass off.) We're also thinking about going to Busch Gardens VA for a day. I have so much saved up from BT donations that were supposed to pay for MI that we can pretty much do whatever we want locally (Considering lots of the money I saved up was just to pay for the gas to the UP 2100miles, everything we do up there, and the 2100 mile trip back). That's a lot of gas. No, flying isn't an option since the nearest airport is a 3hr drive away. (And we want to go to different spots in the UP).

That's 'bout it fer now.
