Christmas commissions ....


Christmas is making up for that beautiful 7 weeks away - I have a target of finishing all the commissions by Friday giving me six days to get ready for Santa.
All the faces are done - about six little bodies left - seventeen in total and it's time to ho,ho,ho !
Pre trip and post trip is the busiest I've been - seriously encroaching on golf time - got 42 'off the stick' last week which was really good for me - ".... for 18 that's nice dear ?!!! "

Beautiful work Tel. I agree with Rick about those backgrounds, they look awesome!

Hey thanks Kelly, Rick, Edo and Ken - I appreciate your kind words. I think we're all busy this time of year and, probably, looking forward to a January lull !
Those backgrounds & borders are CS4 and the Photoframes plugin in all their glory ......

Tel, I visit your site often. These are your best. I really like the way your flesh tones come out. Not muddy at all, which is amazing to me! Great stuff!

Tel said...

Thanks Terry ( .. you must be a top bloke with a name like that !! ) - I'm pleased with the flesh tones too, I've really started to ignore the colours in the subjects photo's which can be all over the place. Couple of the likenesses are a bit off and I've had to change them for the clients - overall I'm happy with the Christmas rush !! Thanks for dropping by ........
I'm really looking forward to doing a couple of celebrity shots haven't done one in ages.
