This is another tutorial I finished recently. In Photoshop tutorials, you basically follow along as someone tells you exactly what buttons to push. As long as I can follow directions, I look like a creative genius. I'm familiarizing myself with the controls so to speak. My next project I show off will be created from scratch and my own ideas, promise.
I had to show off this one because it's Christmas time, and I haven't decorated. It feels very Scrooge-y. Nice change of pace, but I might have to string a set of lights on something later. For now, I have this.
I'm constantly amazed by how many things are possible so easily in Photoshop. I compare it to Gimp regularly. That picture would not have been possible for me in Gimp. This tutorial came from PSD Dude for anyone who wants to do the tutorial, too. If you do, link in the comments to your picture, and I'll ooo and ahh over your masterpiece!
