The Colorado card is coming along slowly, very slowly, but it's coming along. I have done almost everything freehand. I have only used photoshop for some background and color enhancement. The bird, the barbed-wire fence, and the background pattern have all been drawn freehand. It has been painstakingly difficult, but it's getting accomplished. All I have left to do is to blend in part of the background surrounding the bird and then the text. I am going to try and do part of the text freehand (the word Colorado). It's going to be hard, because, it has to be done on a curved plane. I am going to give it a go though. I ditched the original background plan. I couldn't find a decent photo with a prairie type landscape. I went ahead and made up a tricolor flag type pattern. The coloring with the help of photoshop came out pretty good. I hope to finish up in the next couple of days. It has definitely been my biggest challenge so far.
