Looks as if it's going to be good, Joel. I only hope his right eye is in the right place :) You've got some good tones there.

Going beautifully and I like the colors in this too. :thumbsup:

Question: How do you get it on the transparent bg and still post as a .jpg??? I've notice you and Maria do that.

Hey Marge, thanks for the thumbs up!

To create a JPEG showing the transparent background you must take a screen shot by pressing your "print scrn" button on your keyboard... then paste the image into your painting program... crop... and save.:)

Thanks lots!

Kristen, this is Janet's brush... it's a variation of the Opaque Acrylic brush. It's become one of my favorites.

Maria, I hope you feel that way when I'm done.:)
