hahah, I agree with the gorgeous statement, but he's very beautiful too in that whole pre-Raphaelite way :)...

I was actually looking at a picture of him recently and thought what stunning eyes and features. I thought about his brother Phoenix and couldn't believe it was so many years ago that he was a bright and shining star. Beautiful picture!

how did you do the airbrush thing?

I took the picture, made new document the same size, brought the picture over onto the new document. Then you make a new blank layer and begin painting the picture. You start with the darkest color first, fill the entire space and erase anywhere you don't want that color. (In this part it's easiest to lower the opacity of the painted layer and to erase on it while following the lines on the real picture). Then if that particular layer needs other colors blended in or worked on, I go ahead and select just that portion and do all the work in a protected little area. Next color, select the blank space and do all over again. It's terribly tedious work and requires much blending especially when you get to the skin. That's why smudging, magic wand, opacity, and eyedropper are my best friends. If it's an extremely difficult picture, I'm told that you can separate out the painted layers, but I never tried it.

it's sooooo tiring, this one was done over a week......I'm still not sure how you pump as many of them out as you do...but maybe i'll do something again if the right picture strikes :)

I think I get so many done is because once I start on one I can't set it aside until it's finished. My family thinks I'm crazy cause I have an unnatural amount of patience for very tedious things ( I love doing complex counted cross stitch as well ). My theory is, the harder the challenge the more I want to conquer it ^ _ ^

oooooooooh I love counted cross stitch! See! Another proof that you are my doppleganger.
