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-

ImageEvery 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- ImageBut 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-ImageEventually 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?
