Thursday Randomness: Before & After

For today's Thursday Randomness, I'm showing off some of my graphic art skills. Doing this comic strip for several years now has really done a lot to improve my work. There's been a lot of trial and error, sadly with some of the errors making it online, but for the most part, I think some of what I do has turned out really well. On occasion, I even hit a grand slam. I think the episodes I posted yesterday and this past Friday fall into that latter category where I really nailed it.

For my steampunk version of Richmond, I went down to the Shockoe Bottom area which has a lot of cobblestone streets and snapped some pictures. This happened on an overcast Sunday, which worked out well since it not only kept things from being too bright but also limited the number of cars and foot traffic. Here are some "before-and-after" pictures of what I did.

Wow, that is super cool! I like a little "behind the scenes" stuff.

What program are you using ?

Thanks, Beth & Joe!

And, Joe, I use Paint Shop Pro 7.0. It's a great program, and after all these years, I still don't think I've managed to really use it to its full potential. Lots of cool features.
