When worlds collide
This is my first attempt after running through numberous tutorials and leaving questions here on the forum. The foreground is an actual picture taken from the porch, the planet is, well, its a planet. I used the eraser tool to take out the backfground scenery and although it was for practice and not very straight on the columns, the tool actually gave the columns a weathered look which to me, looks natural and cool. Let me know your thoughts. I am still new to this and learning as I go.

Thank you for all who have given me tips and suggestions in the "Beginners" forum.

J.

Nice! You live in space now? Lol, great job though.

But take your time with it, the edges look a little rushed. You can draw/paint/smudge in straight lines to even out the edges by pushing shift + contrl + left click.
Take your time when filling in the edges, overall very nice!

Thanks. It does take away the effect, dosn't it?

I thought I would keep the rough edges anyway, as it gives it a weathered look, to me. But, yeah, It was only for practice anyway. using a touch pad on the computer and not a mouse is a little harder for me to make the straight lines. I am considering getting a digital art pad.

well, also if you want to go for a scrapbook effect too that would work ^_^ for a more weathered look I would try adding some splinters in the wood or wear on the paint *for your next project that is, in this case, great job. Until next time! Smile
