So, I've been trying to achieve the seemingly impossible task of teaching myself Photoshop. I'm apologizing in advance for the whining...but it's so haaaarrrrd! I've been working on a simple sketch I did of Hogwarts (dork alert) and since I wasn't satisfied with it, I wasn't going to post it but I've worked on it for the last few days (!), so...I feel like I kind of have to post it now. However, one of the things I discovered and love about The PS (that's what I'm calling Photoshop now), is the texture option. I'm kind of obsessed with it, actually. I spent many eye-crossing hours searching for different textures all over the internet, then searched for the rare tutorial that had good audio to show me what to do with them. Now I know how Indiana Jones felt when he found the ark! I'm really tired. You can click on the illustration to see a larger version and see just how obsessed I got with all that texturosity (it's a real word). Oh, and last but not least, I wanted to thank you guys for following me and taking time from your busy lives to read this. And a huge hug to Eve, who gave me her extra Wacom tablet (I love it!). xo
The textures used are from mayang.com [link] and arsgrafik.com [link].
