I love Photoshop, and so should you!
I was first introduced to Photoshop in Highschool and it quickly became my passion and favorite pastime. I started off with some really cheesy Photoshops such as putting a face in a cup of coffee-
Every time I did a project I got a little better. I would watch photoshop tutorials online and try to replicate them with my own original content. By the time I started college I had already completed 30 personal projects in Photoshop.
I took a break from it for a while, but when I started up again I started trying many new tricks. Previously, most of my visual tricks were done with the camera, and then just touched up in photoshop, such as this one- But when I came back to Photoshop I came back much stronger, and much more willing to try new things, such as downloading new brushes to do hand magic-Eventually I found a great website: Worth1000.com – which is full of aspiring graphic designers, and immediately I knew that I had a long ways to go before I could do projects like them. I still do have a long ways to go, and sometimes I am baffled by the quality of work that the self proclaimed “worthian” community can produce. I don’t pretend to be as good as some of them, but I feel like I have learned quite a few things over the past few years and that I can now start to share my works with those who would like to learn.
My most recent projects have been taking fictional creatures (mostly pokemon, and yes I know how dorky that sounds) and chopping them (or Photoshopping them) to what I would imagine they might look like in real life if you happened to stumble across one in the wild.
I hope you enjoy my projects as much as I enjoy making them. I am aware that they are not perfect, but that’s what learning is for, right?
