"Bug love"
Bug love
I am trying to improve my technical skills, so both of the bugs were created from the source picture and made to look like they were holding hands. I did some creative blending to get the leaves to form a heart pattern.

you know if the law of averages is accurate, and the psc voting line stays at the same level it has been for the last couple of months, this is going the way of the high 80's - mid 90's, hey I may be wrong, but then again I could be right lol, woo

Whatever Marco, after the amount of entries this man has made and the amount of improvement he has shown, he deserves all the accolades he ges on this one.
