Advanced Lesson, week 1
I found the directions a bit confusing, jumping
back and forth from Animation Shop to PSP, but learned a new technique.
*grins* I think the technique I used prior to this, was faster,
The instructions for the watercolor looked so interesting, I decided
to give it a try - and am quite pleased with the results! I did
my own thing as well as followed the tutorial . . . I duplicated
the finished image and added one of the Jasc preset lighting effects
(lamp), then lowered the opacity of that level to 75 and merged.
And it 'might' look like it, but I'm really not as narcissistic
as the watercolor image makes me appear to be! *grins*
I found this little guy in last month's Intermediate Lesson's and
just had to make him! Those soulful eyes brought to mind Patsy Cline's
memorable song, "I'm Sorry." He's just too adorable!
And the Sinedot Elegant Bottle - very pretty and easy to make. I
chose to colorize mine instead of leaving it gold, as well as add
the background from (my old) page and then add a small - 2 pixel
- transparent border. The shapes had shadows applied, so I felt
it didn't quite look right, on a normal transparent background.
Advanced Lesson, week 2
Although a bit time consuming, I am pleased with
this blooming rose! My only problem with the entire tutorial, is
when I launched Animation Shop and opened my rose.psp file, it did
not open as the 11 frames as the instructions said it would
- I had to go back (after checking and rechecking my settings, mind
you! *grins*) and save each section individually.
This technique is quite similar to how I had been creating text
on a curve - but with considerably less steps! Very easy and actually
quite fun (as opposed to my 'usual' stressful way! *laughs*)
