I?ve been using Photoshop
quite a bit at work lately but only for making posters, banners etc, and nothing amazingly creative, but it did get me in the mood and so I?ve been playing.
It was my mate Ian?s 24th Birthday yesterday and I usually like to personally make something for people?s birthdays (see here & here) so I thought I?d make him an arty portrait and here is the result:

and I must say I?m very happy with it and I feel confident enough to try some more and get even better results (I know there are bits that can be improved). What I like about Photoshop is that although I?ve been using it since 2002 and think I?m pretty good with it, there?s always more to learn and there are some amazing tutorials out there. I actually got this tutorial from here
although I usually get quite a few from here
Do you like it? Would you like your own portrait? If you do then send me a message via the email address in my profile and tell me why I should?. Easy as that. I?ll upload any I do to this blog (I need some content) and I?ll send you a high-resolution copy for yourself.
