I'm learnding Photoshop!


Yeah, it's still pretty early in the class. This is the first chunk of work that isn't a follow-along-with-the-book thing. I'm sure it could be better but I have to do another one before tomorrow evening. I know a couple of you have phat knowledge, and I welcome your suggestions to the extent I can understand them.

This is a mantis shrimp/Norwich terrier hybrid in Guell Park, Barcelona. If you want to see a bunch of better ones, click here.

Aww, it's so cute in a freaky, scaly way.

I'm so disturbed by that thing! Every time I scroll by it I'm re-traumatized all over again (shiver).

That's great that you're taking the class Octo! The only critique I would give on that image is that the creature looks like he's floating because of the shadow.

Yeah, I know that shadow is far from correct but with those stark shadows in the background it felt worse than no shadow at all. I should probably use a different location shot.

The distort and skew features are great for shadows.
