…though i was not working on it continuously.
it does have a few rough spots, but if i keep polishing it will never get finished.
i saw the frame in mid 2006. it is from number 416, page 9.
i think the new theme colors reminded me of it.
it took me twelve major attempts to get it to this point.
i cleaned the lo-res raw and did all of the coloring/effects.
the hardest part was retouching the stippling where the effects are and having it look close to being done by hand.
there is quite a bit of detail that is not visible in the preview image.
the link to the hi-res version gets you a 6 MB image, 10x7.4 inches @ 300 dpi.(hi-res link below the preview image.)
large enough to print out at a very large size if you wanted. poster size maybe. : )
please free to share or print out as you choose.
i put the raw frame below the colored version to show what the beginning state was.
here is the hi-res link:
hope y'all enjoy.
