Thanks for the kind words @wwwiebe!
This was just an experiment, really... it was far too tedious and time consuming to turn into any kind of regular practice, but it was still fun to see just "whether it could be done, and an improvement made."
I'm pretty much resigned to just having a "box of stuff" that's going to always be "old work," and the fact that it's always the new work people want I suppose serves as confirmation that my creative endeavors are actually "improving," on some level. And that's a good thing... I think.
Thanks for stopping by!
