Inktober is over, there is a chill in the air, our clocks have fallen back, and I have created a new challenge for myself. I call it "PhoShoVember." I may have thrown the same gauntlet last year, but without the clever name. :)
Much like Inktober, which was started by Jake Parker as a personal project, I have set a goal, just for myself, to learn and become semi-proficient at Photoshop. Now, if you would like to join in, of course you are welcome and I would love to see your work.
As for my progress thus far, I had intended to post my first freehand Photoshop painting right here, right now. However, it appears I failed to heed one of the first lessons: "Merge your layers THEN save." Seems if one does not merge, one may be saving what appears to be a blank page. I may have saved myself some embarrassment as my painting looked like something any first grader could have accomplished with a fresh box of crayons.
I will also be participating in Slowvember, which was started by another favorite artist: Lee White. The premise of Slowvember is to take the entire month to work on a single piece, taking time to make it your very best. Given my inexperience with Photoshop, my progress will most assuredly be slooooooow. ;)
Since I have nothing Photoshop-y to show, I will leave you with a photo of my beautiful furbaby. Until next time...
