Yet another old one tweaked and with lighting effects. I think this one was done in 2.5. I just can't get the same background effect these days. May have to install 2.5 and do a load of backgrounds and open them in 4.5.

Black cat moon. . . Love it. Gotta be a song in that somewhere. No cats on vocals though. :rolleyes:

As to the background patina. I can't tell you how many times I did something while tripping around playing with this button and that menu, this program, that filter, which order it was done in. And even just having done it I probably couldn't retrace my steps.

I haven't used this particular feature, but I believe you can record you steps and actions along the way. And I believe that could well minimize losing the inevitable lucky breaks one wishes they could reclaim as a method. I think it may be in Scripts? SOS would know for sure. He knows the program like he wrote it.

Some part of this painting looks like it might have used one or several of the Photoshop filters. But whatever, you may want to continue playing in the latest version cause playtime is all the time. The features are vast. Also, Dave or Matt Rage told me that while some features were eliminated because of redundancy or whatever, some of them morphed into a different name or palette location to get the same thing (I'm hoping I'm saying that right but you get that you might stumble onto what you could do before in earlier versions in different places and that would certainly make remembering somewhat more challenging).

I should have put my glasses on......thought it said "Bustle in the Hedgerow".....
Had me looking all around for 'Stairway to Heaven' to play....Feeling a bit old and
tweaked as well.....unlike your classic, I love'it... it's all Very Mysterious.....
Take care,

Love the color palette, the pattern, and, especially that black cat how you placed at corner. brilliant. love this one :D One thing I also agreed. Recently I revisited some of the old paintings done in past versions. I found out that some effects I created couldn't be done on new version. I have the same thought about install the 2.5 too. Interesting! :D
