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.

Do you think children have a plan? Grab those crayons and keep coloring outside the lines! S-

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.
