Finally this is finished! I must say, I am extremely pleased with how it came out. Of course I'm sure there are things I could improve on but for now I think I'm done looking at it.
But I still really love it.
Also, I want to put a plug in for two ladies whom have helped me a great deal:
has always been a great inspiration to me since I started watching her in Nov. 2004! Yes, I looked it up, that was so long ago! Could it be be that long ago? Wow. I've always adored her work.
had helped me a great deal in digital work in instructing me and giving me great advice and encouragement. She's always ready to put in a word of advice and explain how I can do something better.
Thanks guys so much for your encouragement and answering my questions! Info
