I Think I'm Addicted...

I use Photoshop to manipulate other images. I can't draw in it, and I'm not the best at freehand things, but I can use the pen tool, I know what filters are/what they do, and I can match colors. My friends think I am a perfectionist in the program. I am so paranoid about details that I have a tissue box next to my computer so I can fix any smudges on the screen so I can see my image better.

I am not the kind of person to go and change people, I'm not one of those Myspace freaks who must make themselves look "awesome". I prefer images based around animals, or instruments. In fact I think I'll post the link to a couple images, to show you what I mean...

I only changed the focus of the original image:
• http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f54/Kagit/My%20Stuffs/TigerBWCOLOR-1.png
•  http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f54/Kagit/My%20Stuffs/kittybalanced.png

I changed the entire image:
• http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f54/Kagit/My%20Stuffs/Untouched.png
• http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f54/Kagit/For%20Others/TrumpetStarssm.png
• http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f54/Kagit/For%20Others/ShadeSig.png

The last two were for friends.
I think I'm actually addicted to the program. I've gone weeks without being able to use it [hurray school...] and it actually felt like I needed to go on. I think Photoshop is just such a great outlet for me, something that I am actually go at, that I need to be able to use it. I have one friend who is as Photoshop dependent as me, and another who isn't quite there yet. My Photoshop friend and I will start talking about how to make an image, or how we did this, or that, and the third one would look at us with like we are aliens or something. But we all share a good laugh about our 'nerdiness'.

Lol... <br />
<br />
this only happens your first two years or so of photoshop..<br />
Have you had THIS yet? <br />
<br />
You're walking down the street and see a billboard, and think to yourself, "I know how they did that!"<br />
Or you look at a magazine and criticize fonts out loud to your friends..<br />
<br />
I'm just sayin' :P

Those are some awesome images, good job!
