This is a cloud picture. I dont know if you did this when you were a kid, but I used to stare at the clouds for hours. I used Photoshop. I dont use filters or anything fancy. I render a cloud, then I take my airbrush and smudge tool and pop in my favorite cd.

My progress pictures are up on the Something Green *St Patrick* project (http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/Projects/browse_details.msql?proj_id=40) if you would like to see them.

This is one of the most unique and interesting approaches to creating an image that I've ever seen. Watching the progress of the how piece develops is as enjoyable as seeing the finished product. I think your creative style also lends itself to animation. It would be really cool to see the clouds swirling and progessively forming into your finished image. Also liked your mouse works.

While working on this I thought I would get a lesson in composition before I started adding a lot of detail. I have always been so involved in the actual mechanics of things that I never really thought about composition until I found this site. I visited the chatroom yesterday to see if I could get some tips. They were very helpful http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

The girl facing out of the picture takes your eye out of the picture. I need to draw the eye back into the picture somehow. I could give her something to hold in her hand that would be rounded like this _)_ I also thought about making her wings (shes supposed to be a fairy) shaped in a way that takes your eye back.

I thought I would throw these ideas in here and see if maybe there is something I havent thought of or noticed. I am open to suggestions.

Very imaginative! I'm still trying to figure out this composition thing myself.

This is what I finally decided to do with this problem. It's probably still not correct, but I learned a lot researching.

We (my daughter and I) decided that the man should be a younger boy. She wanted him to have blonde hair like her.

When I got to this point, she said.. "Ok Mom, now dont mess it up!" So I saved, posted and left it alone. I can't argue with the boss!
