    I really like the blue.. but the yellow needs to be sanded down, then painted over again.. don't sand it all the way, just smooth it out.

    would you mind making your images smaller though, as they're stretching the screen. Thanks.

    host them on imageshack.us when you go to actually upload them, there's an option right there in the middle of the screen to resize them :) 

    use superfine sandpaper

    Nice job for your fist time. Especially with that blue.
    Agree with the others about the yellow.

    If your still using Photobucket, there's a resize option under each pic. :) 
    There's also a free photoshop trial version you can download off the net incase you need to crop any pics before loading them in photobucket.

    Don't worry you're in the right hands, this place will take care of ya.
    Ever need anything feel free to give RL as many PM's as you like

    Yeah, that yellow has to go. It looks like smeared-on putty. But the blue is nice and smooth!

    P.S. Clean your keyboard.

    If you head over to Lowe's and look for fine-grit (I think that, the higher the numbers get, the finer the grit?) sandpaper, you should be able to find some that you could use on that yellow beak. As long as you sand VERY LIGHTLY, you'll get the desired effect. Don't think "vigorous sanding," think "light and fluffy." :D
