The mermaid icon is a trip! You really look like you are in water, but I can't tell if you are lying down instead! Cool effect!

I always wondered if you found a way to take all of these pictures of yourself, well, by yourself! LOL

Wow

You are now one of my idols. Good lord... how do you get the colors to obey... *thwaps oil colors*

Your mermaid is amazing. If I were not broke, I would make an effort to buy it.

Re: Wow

Thank you!!!

Hehe, I like acrylics better than oils myself - mostly because they dry in like five minutes (instead of a week like oils!).

I use the free animation program that comes with Paint Shop Pro. It's a very simple program, but it does the job!

As for these specific types of icons, I take the photo of myself with my webcam, and then of course make an acrylic painting loosely based on the photo, scan it in, make both pictures the same size, line them up on top of each other as close as I can, and then I use a "morph" animation to make a little 6-frame animation!
