I feel guilty that while Piet is embarked on serious learning with meticulous plans and tasks, I am just entertaining myself playing with toys.
Let me get this straight... Piet is trying to turn squirrel nuts into a pair of tits, and you feel guilty that you are just entertaining yourself playing with toys. You need to talk to a counseler. Or perhaps just talk to yourself! <Big Grin>

Entertaining yourself is exactly the right answer - Good for you Min!!!

Ha! At least you had some sort of plan. I just dabble around and see what happens, then grab something and cram it in the frame. My greatest lack, according to all my reading, is that I have no plan, no vision, no clear path. It is that way when I write as well. I see a shiny thing (or think of it), snatch it up, then that shiny thing asks for another, then they conspire to demand more, and I simply bumble along behind them watching what they do.

I've always loved this kind of imagery and thought it was part photograph part watercolor so to know it's all photoshop is incredible!

I really like this and would like to see more like it! S-

Glad you like it! I love playing with these tools. Photoshop lets my frustrated artist persona run wild and free, even if I can't paint or draw. I'd encourage anyone with the inclination to play with these kinds of creations.
