Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

I entered this digital artwork in the Elftown House Competition, 2006, and it won! I remember creating this like it was yesterday. It took me four and a half weeks! I literally built this house digitally, one log at a time, and put them together to make the house, and then there were all the rest of the details that came afterward.

Well, then in 2014 I opened the PSD of the above image up one day and thought to myself, "I should re-do this, give it a complete make-over." ..And so, I did! In all the years since creating the first version, I've greatly improved with my digital skills AND I've made thousands and thousands of graphics, including my own trees, grasses, wood/fencing, etc., as well as lots of horses. I LOVE horses! I made all new roofs, a new chimney, put on additions, and decided to make it larger as a desktop/monitor size (1920x1080). This gave me additional space to work with to add a garage, barns, fences, fields/pastures, and of course, horses, transforming it into a nice horse farm, which I titled it, "Dreamy Acres". As one can see, I love details. I even put curtains and blinds up and plants in some windows! This second round, the re-do, took me a little over three weeks. So, the time this piece took all totaled overall (both versions), not counting the separate graphic projects, such as the trees, fencing, grasses, horses, etc., was nearly two months. This is what the original (above) transformed into:

😊 So, when I compare the two, the before and after, what a difference overall. 😊

"If we deny failure, we deny success,
For failures need to happen
Along the way as we learn and progress."
