you've flipped this, right? Compositionally, it worked better the other way around.
Yes, it's more so that I get a different view on it. It was something Feng Zhu did in his tutorial. He flipped the canvus just to get a fresh look on the image. I'll be flipping it back at the end :).
Well - who am I to argue with Feng Zhu? :-) I'm looking forward to seeing more of this stuff from you, and I love the fact that you're hitting those Gnomon DVDs and moving your skills along - great, Lev! :-)
nice!!! keep it up
