  7. I really like your work! I do everything by hand and would love to learn photoshop and the like. Do you have any suggestions for me on where to start? Thank you for sharing!

  9. Thanks everyone! You are all very kind. (Feel free to post criticisms too! Ha ha.)

    Pim: I've taught various courses which focus on image creation software...One thing that I always say is; don’t let the software dictate what your piece looks like.

    Decide what you intend your piece to look like before you begin...and make it happen. It requires experimentation, but you will pick up the ins and outs of the application quickly. Obviously, during the process, your piece may evolve, but don’t compromise quality because of a perceived software limitation. There is always a work-around. Plus, the ability to problem-solve is an excellent measurement of creativity!

    I'm not big into buying books on software (at least at the beginner level). I find they tend to re-hash what is already in the software’s built-in tutorials. There is a lot of free stuff online as well!

    I hope this helps.

  15. You know. I actually think i'd feel better if you could see them like that. At least you'd be able to know something's there without having to employ an electron microscope or something like that.

    Great work!

  17. hmmm... if you put enough of them together and lay on them, it could be like your own personal masseuse... until they catch on and start biting of course. Great one again Chad!
