IF: Fortune


"It's good to be the King."
Mel Brooks - History of the World, Part I

If I had this kind of money I would wade in it and laugh maniacally too.

I tried experimenting with the acrylic brushes in Painter this week. I still need more practice to get the look I want. I added some shading and tone with the 'New Simple Water' brush on a gel layer
at about 50%.

Whenever I stop by here I always end up drooling over your work. It makes my keyboard sloppy! :D

The king curls are awesome, and I really like your 'green' mother nature as well.
