I tried some water color, but I had a little trouble with the brush.

Very nice Jim!

But the flesh tones leave the girls looking a bit pale, even grey.

Maybe it was something they ate.

Must've been the snails that got contaminated with lutefisk.

The white balance of the K3 (trio) is a tad off. Try painting in Raw mode. Much easier to clean up.

You know, I think this idea of the K3 coloring contest might have legs. It truly deserves its own thread. Maybe Adam can even find some sort of prize appropriate for the winner.

I assume the K3/FA 77mm combo. Poor focus. noticeable CA and lacks corner sharpness. Definitely not PEG quality. But don't quit; lay back tonight with some lutefisk and try again tomorrow.

Hey! This Is PF. If Da Vinci had posted "The Last Supper" on here and asked for critique, he'd be so deflated he'd go back to inventing helicopters and artillery for a living.

BTW, Da Vinci would not buy a K-3. He would buy a K-50 and design an elaborate system for stitched photos that would allow 360 omnidirectional imaging for total immersion videos. But of course he would never actually build it, for doing so would be inappropriate and out of character.

I wonder what would happen if it were wrapped in delicious bacon, painted, and served up by a K3 girl....

Possibly duct tape will work better for the K-3 girls!
