Winter Feed – PS Tutorial

I want to thank those of you who have written me personally with your thanks for writing my first Kindle book, “Digital Texture: Beginners Guide to FAQs,” and am very glad that is has truly helped you as you begin your journey. As I know you will grow beyond this book  and as a few on my mailing list have requested another book, one that shows how I apply and use the textures I make in my own work or in the examples I’ve shared in my newsletter, I’ve started to work on a second Kindle book. I’m looking at doing a more formal format than the fixed format I used as some of you from the UK were unable to download the book without having to update your Windows.  Here is a recent work that I used in my newsletter and that I plan on using in the book. Would love your feedback as to the format of the tutorial. Is it in depth enough? What would you change? Add? and so on. Would also appreciate if you add what level of experience you have in working with digital textures—beginner, intermediate, advanced; and what software you are working in—Photoshop, Gimp, etc.  Thanks!

Thanks to all who responded. Mesa Verde Cliff Dwelling 2 | Buy a Print Simple Architectural Beauty | Buy A Print Taking down time is important to keeping the creativity flowing.  I have been working on some new paint textures to use with my art as well as some photographs. I hope to have these available to the public on my texture site soon. Some of the best textures I have created have come from suggestions or requests from friends needing or wanting something specific. How about you? Do you want a texture you can’t find yet? Let me know I will get started on it. Join My Mailing List and Receive Free...
