    The Dog and Gun...

    Here is an Old Inn picture,started to put some detail in, but its going all wrong, had tooo much contrast,reduced contrast in PhotoFiltre and reduced the colour too, overdid things and kind of wrecked it,but I think it may still be save-able,anyway its a work in progress as you can see so now all I have to do is progress it.....Jack.

    You should be able to finish with a very fine piece. The subject and scene are promising. So get to progressing.

    Has the look of a tintype or ferrotype photo.

    The figures on the right look like you had models. Very natural poses. I quite like them

    But it all works really well. Very informative -- like walking into a tavern for real and seeing everyone and everything. . . something a good pirate needs to do, if he wants to avoid being tickled by a dagger, a dirk and a squzameroo.

    It´s starting to perk up a bit. It should be another great piece when you´re done with it.

    Quite a complex picture to tackle, particularly from your imagination. Just amazing so far Jack.

    Progression...

    After all the good comments on this ....and the fact that up to 2000 pixel is now postable on the forums gallery,I have decided to take this one a bit further... I have increased the size to 2000 pixel width,and am going over all the work to re-do it at the larger size,it is staying in Artrage and I am keeping it as a PNG so should be no losses of detail,anyway thats the plan... this is going to take ages so I hope I can post it at this size without reducing ....this is how much I have done so far in the re-work...if you look to the right of the window,I was even starting to put grain in the oak beam, but thats possibly a bit over the top,anyway I will just see how it goes now... thanks for the encouragement from all you guys,your continuing support keeps me going thanks a lot.....Jack.
