Thanx, Ryenke,

And thank your husband, too. As a gamer myself (N64, Playstation, Dreamcast and as soon as I can find one, PS2!), I know how hard it is to be separated from your controller! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I was experimenting in Photoshop on a pastel drawing I did, when I saw some elements that intrigued me, I made a new document, copied, pasted, resized, moved, smudged, sharpened, filtered etc. until I got this eagle.

What do you think?

OK, let me try to post the correct picture link:

I like playing around in Photoshop, too. You can come up with some interesting stuff. I really like the gel-like quality of the eagle. This would make a cool logo.

Did you use any third-party filters on this?

I only used one filter, - it was not a third party one, I'd have to check my notes to see what one I used.

By the way, I loved your portrait! I made my husband stop his video game and come look at it. It is terrific!

Looks like we're back to real time.

Hey - nice - what is so cool about your image is that it doesn't look like it went through filter-hell (common Photoshop problem). It actually has a painters look to it. Cool!

Thanks Shriner - Believe it or not - this is the original pastel that the Eagle came from:

Hi Ryenke,
not satisfied with pastels huh? You're moving into the digital arena too. Good for you. Welcome aboard. Just had a thought, you said in the pastels forum that you were coming to London next week. I don't know if you'll be visiting any of the sights here, but, if you are, it will be a great opportunity to take some pics with your new digital camera, for painting at a later date.
Hope you have a great time. Regards.

Hi Salmon!

Actually, I'm very satisfied with pastels, but once I scan a painting in, I just can't stop myself from playing with it. In a very odd way, these two mediums (well three, actually, I'm a fair photographer) are complimentary and quite satisfying to me.

And, yep - the digital camera purchase was made this week specifically for my trip. I'll play with it this week and try to figure out if I want to bring it AND my SLR, lenses etc. or if I can get by with just the new digital one!
