I’ve been repeating the tutorials a bunch of times to help me learn better. Most of the time I understand how to do the steps but I’m not always sure what each step accomplishes.
I did this tutorial three times before I realized there’s a page 2. I still haven’t done page 2.
This one gets me practice with the pen tool. Luckily I remembered pretty quick because pen tool is a pain to learn. The hard part, which I’ve written about before, is that I mouse right-handed. I would love to go back in time and figure out why I did that. But after 20 years, I can’t mouse with my left hand.
I got the tablet out and tried to just use my left hand but it was hopeless. So I’m currently doing this crazy two-handed thing where I draw left-handed on the tablet but do all other clicking with my right hand.
If I get good at it there might be a documentary about me some day.
You ARE writing the documentary. It’s called your blog. 😉
I’m impressed that you’re reading the tutorials. PhotoShop (PhotoShop Elements, no less) intimidated me so that I haven’t gone near it in months.
