Wow, just looked at this on my home computer (I had drawn it at work). I didn't realize the bushes looked so noisy. Oh well.

Wexter> My thought process was going along those lines, too... of taking it literally. Ended up doing something different, though, obviously. Cool pic.

jpedro, that rocks! I admire the way you can go from grayscale to color, something that I still have trouble with. Best entry so far.

JTD, thanks i really appreciate it!

if the values in your BW image are fine(most important), then itīs usually a mix between color, multiply, overlay layers on top of the greyscale image, to get a good base, then in a last pass, usually i use a normal layer again to accentuate last highlights....i still find this approach a bit easier than going straight into colors.
