Xun-426 by MililaniMak Xun-426 by MililaniMak
in the symbology of the triads of China, "426" is the red pole, the enforcer. this numeric code is based on the I Ching, wherein "Xun" is the first daughter, a bird, representing wind.

This is really sharp as you intended. The sharpness combined with the selection of colors really makes it outstanding. It's weird that more people don't use these strokes for various layers becasue as you have demonstrated it is very effective.

i think the FF2 product is underutilized. it's actually very reasonably priced, especially if you time your purchase right. i got my license for just $44, i think, when was offered late last year at 70% off the regular price. since then, it's been offered at a 50% & 40% reduced price, too. the thing is, all of the filters are created by users and uploaded to the library for everyone to use . . . so, it's a constantly growing library of resources. that's tremendous, and a bit like dA where folks share resources. i absolutely love it. especially for someone who doesn't have hundreds of dollars to spend on other products. i believe an updated version (FF3) will be available very soon.

i think i've only used a small fraction of what's available on FF2, too. am making an effort to keep trying new filters. are you using FF2 also, Arthur?

'ey, btw, MAHALO brah for all the favs & comments today. made my day, bruddah Arthur! :D aloha e, Mak

Like the combination of colors - the passion of the reds, the symbolism of riches in the golds, and the danger of retribution from the sais and the winged one's expression telling me, give me a reason...
