I pretty much uh.  Well, I have no damn clue how to use photoshop, but I finished this today and am actually marginally pleased with it:

You have more artistic talent than I do.

Mahiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.  Yes.  Criticism's welcome on my drawings, unlike on my photos.  I can handle abuse toward my art, but not my face.  *grin*  What do you like/dislike about it?

The t-shirt I did the design for actually bastardized that! It had Miltie there, and then "FREE TO CHOOSE" beneath him, with a selection of gin, beer and martini pictured.

I would make the suggestion of drawing your figures in illustrator if you have it. Its built for tablet work and makes the strokes look stronger and even. Then you can import the drawing into photoshop and color it using paths and then add the background. I prefer to do most of my drawings in illustrator because they come out looking neater and more refined. Photoshop is good for picture manipulation.

I keep thinking I should post some of my stuff here, but y'all would rip it to shreds :P

Koge, keep drawing and become more familiar with the software. I would suggest looking at http://www.danidraws.com for some step-by-step tutorials if you want to learn to use illustrator better.

<3 Thank you Star.  Well, I can't afford illustrator, so... we'll have to see about that! ;D I think I really prefer traditional art anywho, but it is fun to play with new mediums.  I would appreciate if you posted some of your stuff, you're really quite talented...and if you have the Mythie seal of approval, you shouldn't have too many problems with it being "torn to shreds" as it were.  Do you have a website or anything?

No, no website -- yet. Its mostly my school stuff, though I've done a few things here & there for friends as favors. This year all my courses revolved around photoshop, illustrator and indesign. I feel pretty confident in my skills with them, but the assignments are helping to establish my design scheme. I'm still pretty shaky on that, but its all good.

I'll see what I can do about uploading some of my stuff this week and post.

koge, I encourage you, if you want to continue in another medium, to save up money for illustrator. Its very different from photoshop and since you already have a tablet you're already at an advantage. I'm hoping for a tablet sometime soon.

I once discussed pirating software on another forum I post on and was reprimanded.  Hence why I implied it this time around.

A few hundred bucks. I bought CS3, which has Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, for $700 I believe, but I was able to use an educational discount. Adobe is a whore.
