Photo Manips and such

We're currently studying photo manipulations in Photoshop CS3 in my CMPA110 (Advanced Survey of Computer Applications) class. Photoshop is just about the only thing I know how to use, so I'm trying to make this a good project since my other ones will not be so good.

We have to make 2 studies, then 2 big projects.

I'm pretty pleased with myself so far. Even though I was pretty good at photoshop already from just using it as an art application, I never considered myself too savvy when it came to photo manipulations or any of the stuff Photoshop is best known for. So, I think I've improved a lot in this aspect, thanks to the class.

(still need to fix a few things...)

A + B + C + D

I'm going to continue the second further into my 2nd CMPA110 project.

Also, to any aspiring digital photo manipulators or wannabes out there:
is a great place to get stock images that have absolutely no copyright rules tying you down. I've used it for drawing studies in the past.

We also just finished a project in Illustrator, which has definitely grown on me. It's such a faster, easier way to digitally ink and color...and I'm really considering using illustrator for Villains and Vigilantes comics...only problem is I don't have Illustrator at home ):

I feel kinda guilty when I draw cartoons, which is why I limit them to "between class, stress reliever" doodles as of late:
