Planning #GeekSquaredWed (Yes, I did just use a hashtag), has taken me to an unexpected journey. Unfortunately not that kind of unexpected journey. Dwarves and Wizards are yet to knock of my door but I haven’t lost hope. And to be honest, I’d rather have elves knocking on my door, anyway. I’m more into singing to the stars than into digging in mines for jewels.
Anyway, journey. Yes.
Long story short, one of the things I ended up doing was signing in for a DeviantART account (and this is going to make Sidlet 1 very happy as she had been wanting me to do so for quite a while). Another one was dabbling in digital art.
I had very much on purpose avoided to get Photoshop. I’ve been using free tools all along. A few years back I tried Gimp for Swing Dynamite projects but I found it difficult to work with. Very counter-intuitive for me. That is still what my daughter uses for most of the printed marketing for the school but I don’t know why, I just couldn’t deal with it.
But, fine. I give in. I will get photoshop and I will learn how to use it cause making these little thingies is a lot of fun!
Huh, and from what I can see from the preview, my silly love birds appear with a black background and I have NO idea why. Some else to learn, I guess..
But here they are. As you can see, they are very simple. I would even dare say primitive. But I sure had fun making them even if most of it was just copy and paste, and flip horizontally and vertically and stuff.
