Butterfly Queen

Practice, practice, practice!
Practice makes perfect!

As you can see (I hope!), I've been practicing.
I've been picking up new tips and tricks
of the trade as I go along.  I've received
wonderful help from Jackie, Aleesa & Gale
with shortcuts in PS, how to load new
brushes & actions to PS, and support
in continuing my newest form of art.

Gale, over at Paper Whimsy asked if I
would consider writing a tutorial from
my point of view as a beginner.  I
agreed, and Gale will be sharing it
with those that are signed up to receive
Paper Whimsy's newsletter (https://www.facebook.com/#!/paperwhimsy)
 in the next week or so.  If you're
not already signed up, head over to
Facebook and "LIKE" Paper Whimsy and
while you're there...sign up for
the newsletter.  That way
you won't miss out on my tutorial when
it's unveiled.  It will take you step-by-step
through creating a piece of digital art
and I share lots of short-cuts with you.

Hope you enjoyed Butterfly Queen, and
I hope that she inspired you to try
something new.  Whether it's Digital
Art, or something else you've always
wanted to do.

This is totally gorgeous, and I admire digital artists beyond words! Looking forward to your tut! Don't think I am cut out for digi, but I always have an open mind. Thanks for visiting and your kind words, and like you said....keep em coming!

She's beautiful!! I am very much looking forward to your tutorial. I always need new tips and tricks, and I know next to nothing about brushes. Hugs!

Thank you Sharon & Heather. I hate to disappoint you Heather, but there is nothing about brushes on my tutorial. Since it was a beginner tut, I steered away from them. BUT, if it's well received...perhaps I'll do another as I breezed through this tut. It was easier than I thought it would be. And trust me, even if you learn one thing...it's worth reading. I love that I always learn something new when I'm with my PS friends.

I like being on the road, living in hotels. While I've got a real nice house, I go crazy when I'm there.Multi Cuisine Restaurants in Chennai
