The Professional Photoshop Book Volume 2

Got another image published!! They had also asked to see AmalgaMATE 2 but I'm glad they picked this one so that I could see another image of mine get some exposure.

Link to purchase: [link]

No, they only used my picture on the cover - there's nothing inside about my work. :(

This image, Gold Rush, is probably the biggest surprise to me in terms of popularity. When i created it, I never thought it would be as popular as it is. Interestingly enough, i will very soon be starting a full series of images centered around 'gold.' This must be a sign!

Full image.

Someone at the magazine did well in stretching the background. I was concerned about that.

How exciting! Even though you're on the cover, it's cool that your picture represents what they think is the best possible way to utilize photoshop. ;)

Congratulations! And well deserved.

When I first saw it, I was hopefully expecting it to be a book that you published based on your own techniques.
