thanks! gimp's actually pretty cool, i'll be using it more in the future.
I am no good with those computer programs and my coloring skills were lost with my last box of hair dye. So just for fun I printed out 3 copies of Tudy and I'm giving one to my 4 year old granddaughter, one to my 9 year old grandson, and one to my 9 year old granddaughter. I can't wait to see what they come up with. I'll set a few rules for the older two....they'll have to use the same medium as the other one uses (crayons, markers, etc.) and they'll have to pick a bird out of our flock to use as inspiration. No rules for the 4 year old...she's disabled and is just now learning to hold a crayon, so whatever she comes up with is going to be simply perfect!
Please note, I'm not entering these in the contest. These are just to have some fun with the grands. I hope it's okay to use Tudy's image this way and I'm not going to have copyright police knocking on my door!
