Practice makes less sucky.
I'm trying to make myself practice more with photoshop and illustrator. I'd like to be able to make a decent piece for our final, which is supposed to be inspired by Dan Eldon. Unfortunately I'm doing all my practice on outdated software. I was planning on buying CS3 with my financial aid. Instead, I had to use almost all of it to buy a month worth (single diskus) of Advair today. $275. But when you're choosing between breathing and, well, anything, it's pretty guaranteed you'll go with breathing.
We have to work on a portrait using a photo our teacher took of us today, so I started messing around this evening. I'm not under any delusion that these are good, but I'm learning a little bit more with each one.
I have no idea why we aren't using wacom tablets in class. They are right there under our monitors, and I don't think we are going to use them even once. Total sheistage.
If I can ever by the new software I will definitely be investing in a wacom tablet. Using the little fingerpad on my powerbook is very frustrating.
