okay, who can guess who it is. :p:rolleyes:

It took me about 3 hours all together. :o And it's still bad. Oh well, I guess it's my best yet.

What program do you use?? What I do is draw on a new layer, so everything that you are drawing is on a transparent layer. That way the background with work easily :)

I use Adobe photoshop 2.0.... I usually make it a new layer, but I didn't notice that I forgot until it was too late :o :p I guess I can try to fix it up, I could probably make a new layer and erase the BG I have now... :)

Looks great Devon!!

You and Audrey should look into a program called "Corel Painter". A photographer that wants me to work for her uses it...mainly to color photographs by hand, but I think it does a great job with drawing/coloring too. It works to best when you use a pen and tablet. It is pretty expensive, but I've seen it online as a special for students for like $100 :D And there is always Kazaa (hehehe ;) )

thanks!

I fixed it up a bit, Audrey, I made a new layer as a background and fixed her beak & crest. ;)

Judy-- I'll have to look into that!

Wow! Thats great! You'd swear it was something you edited from a phot (but I know you didn't)

Great job, and stop being so hard on yourself.
