Here is the strategy for the California ATC. I am going to attempt once again to paint a photo image. I tried this before with the Alabama card and really crashed and burned on it. I have learned a couple of things since then, however. To start with, I am going to paint a grayscale copy of the color original. It's a good idea to have copies made in case mistakes are made. I learned that the hard way as usual. I have also learned how to change color values to make them match the actual colors of the image. Last of all, but not least of all, I won't constantly change the size of the image. That was my major downfall last time. I also plan to do some freehand background work. There is a really cool photoshop application I want to try as well. Hopefully, it will blend everything in well. This will be my most ambitious and probably time-consuming effort to date. Maintaining my patience will be vital.
