  1. Good grief! I think I am a perfectionist but spent a week trying to get a pair of woman's legs and man's legs and feet perfect, in a photoshop painting.
    Sure I got it great so many times but not exactly right. I am determined to get this exactly right without cheating. The rest of the painting is so good! I can't let these legs and feet drag down the picture. I hesitated to look for a site like this but realized my weakness. I am am good amateur and hope to get my best on the web. Thank you. This is perfect.
