Thank you very much, my friend! I am glad you've noticed! I had to take a break and do some studying and experimenting with some new things. I was use to doing things one way, but then I took a step outside of that box and found better things. One of the greatest tips that stuck with me was the tip you gave me about not using the filters that comes with the program by themselves, because it makes the art piece look generic. Well, you were right, my friend and ever since I became familiar with masking and etc..I am now creating my own custom filters that does not take away from the art piece. For instance, if you were to go through my gallery and find a piece of mine entitled "Tapped," you will see that it looks dull, and flat because Of a generic rain filter I used. I was thinking about revising it, but eh I'll just let the past be the past. Anywho, Thanks again!
Yep ! You're right, go ahead, never looking back in art making. Don't revisit 'Tapped', rather make a brand new one from a white page if you are interesting in that project. Because if you would make it, your creating process has evolved and I'm sure you would not work on it as the same way that you did at the first time. It's like a traditional drawing with a pencil, it is better to erase it and start over, rather than strive to change something wrong committed from the beginning.
Indeed, thank you for you kind and wise words. I really appreciate it. I'm slowly but shortly learning to use Photoshop, but at first I was so used to using gimp that photoshop frustrated me lol, sad I know, but its coming along. I just dislike the fact that photoshop makes it a little difficult to perform simple task. In Gimp, the basic tools you need to cut,crop, paste, duplicate, resize and etc...are right there in your face.
