That is the strangest bug I have ever seen. I too thought he had a little green photoshopped coat, with VERY decorative spiked accents. Fantastic find, and a great photo, with excellent color and clarity!

Very sweet author.. (down the road I would clone out the XE bracelet) it's a definite eye pull but the baby is so chubby and cute that it's not that bad .. though black inside a sepia tone piece always draws the eye to it (IMHO)

Just a lovely image all round.. CAYDENCE is a cutie patootie...

Thank you for removing her panties. (Oh, man, that sounds weird. lol) With them, I thought it kind of looked like a fancy lingerie ad. This is much better.

I do think that we can make an exception here because in fact this effect doesn't contribute much to the result, and it's just visible in the hi-res. This piece of art is deserved to stay. Also, thank you for introducing this painting, I don't know it, what a beautiful work.

langstrum says:

Very good remake version, but I do agree with Waz about the composition. Also, I'm curious about one thing: how can you make the noise effect on the image if not using the filter? This noise is very uniform on each layer you made, but different from the girl to the background.

This is a gorgeous update. My only complaint (actually, its more of a whine) is the lack of details in the SBS, mainly because I'd love to know how to do something like this myself. Its so beautiful.
