I know, I know I am about to post yet another photo of my dog. This week I learned about the smudge tool in photoshop. I’m showing what a rookie I am in photoshop by admitting that I didn’t know about this tool already. I found a really cool tutorial on Facebook that taught how to do a painterly effect without needing to buy a software package or some fast app. I’d rather learn how and why things work and not just take the short cuts all the time. At times it can be very frustrating but in the end I feel better about it.
If anyone is interested in learning more about this check out Gavin Phillips on Facebook. He does some free brush downloads and has short videos demonstrating his technics. I’ve had a lot of fun learning some new things from him this week!
