Have a look....


        [Alan Taylor portrait done in Painter 4.0]

        ...and tell me what you think.



        First, let me tell you about my computer. I have a DELL Dimension 8200 with 512 megs of RAM. Inside, I have 210 GB's of hard drive space. I use a MAG Innovision 19" monitor driven by a Canopus TNT video board with 16 megs of VRAM. Attached to all this I have a CONNECTIX QuickCam, a IOMEGA ZIP drive, and a KODAK DS-1 Photo Scanner. I just got a digital camera from NIKON called the Coolpix 880 and I really love this thing. Output is on two HP printers: a LaserJet 4L and a 820Cse. The above image was made using Fractal Design's PAINTER 4.0 and is a composite of 3 images. It's based on a tutorial that comes with the manual. I substituted my mug for the beautiful girl they used in the example.
