Ok, just wondering... Thought maybe, you had some magical program that no one else uses.

Until I got this new monitor, I was doing everything in 8X10 so it was a bit easier, now I've been starting at 24X36 since my eyes are a little worse, lol. The tiled floors have to be the hardest IMO once you start creating a perspective so I made a few pattern fills to help if it got too large.

Lately I've been trying to draw all my stuff, just using shapes, styles, brushes, magic wand and the lasso too, I still cannot get a hang of the pen or pencil tool.

I haven't used PSP in awhile, has it gotten better since version 6 ??

I started with PS7 and now use CS3 ..... still learning. I use to extract everything by using the eraser .....took forever. Someone told me to try the pen tool. It took me a while to get the hang of it, and I still don't use it the way the pros tell you to, but it is so much easier and faster. Last Christmas my wife got me a Wacom Tablet. I use that pen tool now for all my re-touches ... still use the mouse for a few things, but the tablet pen really makes re-touching easier. I got a 26" monitor last year as well as I was having problems seeing on my 19".

How you coming with this months entry? Think I'm finally done with what I'm going to enter. hope to upload this week.

I haven't even started, lol. I'm doing websites and have a deadline for this one in less than 20 days and it's a big one too. I've been falling behind each month with other things but not cause of the contest, I usually only spend 6 to 8 hrs on one from start to finish also messing around on the net while I do it.

I'm not sure I'll ever get to understand the pen or pencil tool properly so I just cut by hand, I'm a photographer so I have access to any size images I need, I can't even count the amount of cool Vettes I have from Super Stock to Old Funny Cars and more pro mods than you can imagine and my cuts are pretty clean I think, still would like to learn the pen and use strokes instead..

I just spent 3hrs trying to make a sidebar repeating image using hexagons, lol. I did get it right but what a waste, I get something in my head and it sticks and I can't focus until it's right.

Hope to see yours and everyone elses work soon !!

Thanks! You didn't do so bad yourself. I take it that's your Vette? Either way, beautiful car.
