    Hi Everyone, well I delivered this portrait today and I received many positive comments on this piece. The lady was showing it off all over at work and I believe it is going to generate a few orders. It certainly gives a sense of pride when a customer shows off your work. Steve

    Hi Mike, I use the software that came with my kodak camera to flip the photo to coloring book, a paint program to clean up the unwanted parts and good old fashioned pencil and paper to add some detail that the computer just don't do for me. Thanks for the kind comments from all. Steve

    you did a nice job...

    but it looks a little to glossy...
    did you use a gloss clear coat or take the picture while it was still wet? (which I have done)

    personally, I like the clear satin finish...
