Did you do this in Photoshop? I am a Photoshop newbie and don't know hardly anything about it... anything you could tell me? Thanks and congrats on the win.

-Fawn #3800782

Sherry S. Boles 1/10/2007 8:56:35 PM

Thanks, Fawn!
This image was done using layers and several filters/techniques. Photoshop is full of great tools. You should really have fun learning it...I know that I have! :) #3805894

Fawn M. Schutt 1/11/2007 12:03:21 PM

I sorta know how to do layers, but I can't seem to get the whole coloring certian parts... #3808217

Sherry S. Boles 1/13/2007 3:41:45 PM

Layers can be confusing. It took me a long time before attempting to learn them. Then I just learned by experimenting. Good luck! #3816283

Fawn M. Schutt 1/13/2007 10:09:16 PM

Not that any of your tips helped, because you didn't give me any. But I figured out how to do the color changing WITHOUT layers... good luck and congrats on your win. #3817093
