I got very ambitious and spent a couple hours playing around in my new Photoshop Elements 7. I have to say it's just like Photoshop 5...which I haven't touched in nearly 10 years! I lost my only copy of it when my old laptop died, and I'm very excited to be working in ANY version of Photoshop again.
I only have one piece so far, and it's on DeviantArt.com. Yes, I know it's VERY primitive compared to all the talent I see bouncing around here. I'm better with words than images now, but I still like to keep my creative energies moving in whatever medium strikes me.
The piece is my concept for a "book cover" for my fan fiction "Republic Commando: Knight of Honor."
The image of the commando is a drawing I found while browsing the internet. The image of the woman is actually Inara from Firefly, but I tweaked her eye color to be blue instead of brown so that she can become the character in my story.
Since I don't know how everyone got their thumbnails to show, and I don't want to kill the bandwith on this site, I'm just posting the link. Sorry about having to do it this way! (Maybe someone can show me how to do this, and I'll fix the post later.)Knight of Honor Picture
