Hey everyone! I'm still recovering from my burnout, so it may still take a while before I get anything done, but I really wanted to share this experience I've been having since last month.

So, since last month (around my birthday, to be exact), I've been learning how to do a lot of stuff on Photoshop, both from the graphic design course I've been attending and from watching artists on Youtube. And you know, I thought I knew quite a bit about this program ever since I started using it back in 2011. Turns out I was wrong. There was SO MUCH more to Photoshop than I thought, so many easier and comfortable ways to make art and edit stuff compared to what I was doing back then, it honestly makes me feel a bit embarassed by how incompetent I used to be at using PS. I mean, I should probably re-do some of my old pics, even the earlier ones from this account, because considering everything I learned lately, they feel pretty outdated from a technical point of view. I guess there was something in me that made me feel afraid of experimenting with new techniques.

Here's a couple things I learned recently:

-Editing brushes;
-Color Balance, Hue, Saturation, etc.;
-Setting up grids for pixel art;
-How the Pen Tool works. No joke, this one confused me for years, and I always gave up trying to understand it;
-The Crop Tool. I feel dumb for never using this one until now;
-Loads of keyboard shortcuts;
-How to edit selections;
-Warping objects;
-And much more!

Honestly, considering how much of a bummer 2018 has been for me, all this learning has really cheered me up, and I really should start doing some art just so I can put all these new techniques to good use.

Also, I'll probably be getting my hands on a graphics tablet soon. My mom will be travelling to the US this month, and I asked for a 6x4 tablet as a late birthday gift, since they're way cheaper there than here in Brazil. I haven't used a tablet since 2010, and the one I had was a piece of crap that I barely used and it only worked up to Windows XP, which I used at the time.

So yeah, that's all I have to say for now.

Hi! Call me Daniel, or Dan if you want.

I mostly draw fan art, but sometimes I like drawing some original stuff (if I can come up with something, that is).

:iconnorequests: (I used to, back in my old account, but I've decided to stop).
