    I love that grassy texture in the first image.

    How did you do it?

    It's a texture from Spiral Graphics that comes with their Genetica Viewer (free). I use a lot of their textures in my maps.

    That was hilarious.

    Looking good though. And I agree, the ambient lighting gives it a scrying sort of feel, almost as if we are seeing something we shouldn't be seeing.

    Nice work, SG.

    When nothing is going right and you can't find someone else to blame, start beating your head against the wall, 'cause it'll feel so much better when you stop.

    Now, tell me that knowing how to use layer masks does not open up a whole new approach to modifying digital images... As you said, a few seconds changing the layer mask can change the image quite a bit and is totally non destructive....

    I was wondering if/when you might come along and say something.

    Told you I'd get to them eventually, took me a while - but I'm stubborn about things sometimes.

    Thanks...Not sure when I'll get back to it, but it shouldn't be too hard to replicate the process.
