    Which is EXACTLY why this is such a great challenge. Sometimes you(people in general) have to be forced to do something the hard way to realize that the other way is just SOOOO much easier.


    btw, it might be instructional to others to post your quote above (and perhaps a link to your river tutorial) in the main thread....

    This looks great Red...with some black or brown line work you could really give it that hand-drawn old-world flair. Cool.
