    paint is sooooo hard!

    You'll have to excuse my pathetic attempt at art Smike, i was bored at work and thought id do a haloween picture on paint, man its so hard using paint!

    I always thought I had a smidging of artistic ability, but paint makes my work look like it was done by a four year old (im 22), but i thought id submit it anyway, for a laugh!!

    hope you enjoyed.......ooooowwwowooohohoho (ghostly noises) :D

    just shows proper tools..macpaint drove me nuts..first i tried that..then i found presto..a program that came with my son's digital camera ..i have paint pro 7 but i truly need an instructor. I still haven't found how to do borders on it and many other things..this is the difference between macpaint and presto..btw they are predicting frost so maybe we will get frost on our pumpkins!
    babyblue..i love yours too..the shadow was a nice touch :D
    this pumpkin was my first digital illustration..i did it all in pixs and i know there has to be an easier way..i would never confess how long it took. I was stuck at mom's after the house burned and was trying to stay out of the way so i bit the bullet and said i was going to figure this out. ..what a difference a variety of colors can make
    since i have to start painting some rock ghosts..i have orders for three..you all have helped me get in the right frame of mind :) thanks!

    aw, that's cute! :D

    I haven't been drawing for awhile (as you can tell from the doodles, lol :D) so I'm gonna practice how to draw dogs again, then maybe do some dog with a witch's hat sort of thing... I dunno, maybe I take the fun away from drawing because I want to make it look perfect :rolleyes:

    the best thing i ever did when Aaron was little was to do a daily journal..didn't matter, just drew whatever off the top of my head and ruffed it in..i had fun. This was suppose to be my new year's resolution but i didn't make it..maybe i will start it tomorrow cause it WAS fun. Then if you have something you consider profound..you can do it up as finished art..when i went to life drawing we did 10 sec..1 min 2 min 5 min up to a half hour or an hour for finish..just getting the gesture improved my drawing tremendously...

    just save it in jpg and make sure it is no more then 300 pixs high (others seem to know how to put in bigger images but i don't..then go to advanced and at the bottom will be manage attachments..if you have saved in your documents or wherever..open that up and upload. looking forward to seeing your "messing around" ;) i love messing around :D
