"Cool" little Project Dallas. It is quite moody, nice effects.

For a guy who can't paint, your backdrop looks very good. Buy why didn't you just find a photo? -- Russ

Um, good question ... it's not quite as easy as "just find a photo" ... that turns into:  find a photo, do some fixes, get it properly scaled and then find someone to print it seamlessly (large sheet printer) ... rather work with my hands than a computer (though they are darned useful) ... and think I actually prefer a painting here ... better able to blend a slightly impressionistic photo with my somewhat impressionistic modeling.  If I could do "photo realistic" modeling like Chuck, maybe I'd use a photo in the back!  Of course, he just takes his outside and makes it "work" ...

So, I guess I'm just screwed by my own inabilities and trying to make do ... or something!  Grin  -- Dallas

I'm glad you got something done Dallas. Looks quite nice, thanks for the build info!

I too have to rely on someone else to print a large photo...sounds like painting was more fun.
