Painting In Photoshop

Well I’m going to try and do a better painting in photoshop this time. Working on an old photograph I’ve found. So I won’t upset anyone if I disfigure the person really badly. The only problem I’ve found at the moment, is that the battery in my pen for my tablet is running out. The cursor keeps jumping around and its really annoying me. I’ve tried like 6 different batteries and they are all doing the same thing. I guess I’m just not allowed to draw.

So please keep a watch on my scrapbook upload’s, as the steps of the image will most likely be placed in there.

With my website, the planned update will have to take a back seat for a while. I need to study for two exams and that is going to take priority at the moment. Well once I work out why I can’t view things well in IE on opera. For some strange reason, the study info isn’t showing up and its rather confusing.

Experiments

It seems that I’ve been able to get back into working in photoshop rather well. But thats because Photoshop Magazines seem to be helping. The ones I get really do help me a lot when it comes to idea’s. I really would like to be able to design really cool interactive web sites when I’m happy when it comes to coding the site. Its just a little difficult when your trying to learn PHP and MySQL at the same time as CGI Perl, Visual InterDev6. I just wish I was able to hold information better. But I’m writing down as many notes as I can before my hand goes numb.

For those who are wondering how my designs are going, Please visit my gallery or my DeviantArt Page ^__^ I’ve yet to update my website at the moment as I’ve designed in a way that takes a little longer that it did previously.

Creativity

Well I am sure most of you can tell there has been a change in the skin for this site. Its not completely finished as I have yet to properly sort out the footer, but it is getting there. I don’t think I am some what an artist when its comes to design. But I suppose what I lack at the moment, I will hopefully gain with time.

Just being able to actually get this far with the skin is an achievement. It did take a while with the images to line up correctly. Which is what I tried to do first before I can create better graphics. But the layout is getting a little bit more technical with images above other images and using div tags. I must say, after trying to get this far in CSS, I really have become more knowledgable in the coding.  Just being able to remember the layout of CSS makes everything else a little easier. Because most of the properties within CSS can also be placed into other formates, it just happens to be worded differently, which if you remember the original CSS code and the code to which you want to add such attributes then its not that hard.

If anyone has any pointers then, please leave me a comment on what else I can do. ^___^
