Hi, thought I'll show you my new painting of Steve. After viewing most of the photos from his RI tour, this is the image that I have done my interpretation from. I wish to thank the person who posted the image since I do not know which concert and country it came from. I must add that this is the ONLY pose that has got me reaching for my paints! A very big thank you for the inspiration. I love it, it's so symbolic.
I am posting it for you all to make more images using Photoshop and maybe produced a few wallpapers for yourselves - enhancing the hue/saturation or even brightness/contrast - some of the results are stunning. This is due to my painting style which involves a tremendous amount of subtle colour mixing. It's still unfinished/unsigned so any criticism is much welcomed. Here it is:

Hope the link works! Have fun using Photoshop and show me some of your creations please.

Thank you, thank you all.
I am glad you like it, I have put on a few more touches to it now - added a bit extra to his gown, had to make the lower half up as the representation image cut short, just signed it to make it look finished - then I see more 'mistakes' and go for my paints again.

Have a closer look at the colour mixing - you should put this under Photoshop too and see what other elaborations you can create!
