Your work displays such a high level of realism that it is breathtaking that it is produced with a free soffware. The way you get life into the images with light and shadows is second to none. that I have seen. After lurking for a while and viewing your tutorials you make it look so easy. Where do you get the ideas for your images? Or the idea of which technique to use?
Decay is a very thought inspiring image. Anyone who has experienced pain and suffering can draw empathy to this. The composition and the images used work together so very well. It should be on a book cover.
Which brings me to another question. Do you do work outside of here, for ereader authors - for a price of course.
Thank you for such a pleasurable insight into the strength of paint.net
