..:: Little Known Talent Featurama ::..

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 21, 2012, 5:26 AM
:wave: Hi everybody :aww:


(I just said that in my head as Dr. Nick Riviera from The Simpsons :giggle: )
Been gone about a week, hope I didn't miss much :?
In that time I decided to try and find a photo manip program that would fill the gap 'til I could get hold of Photoshop. Well, let me tell ya, did I ever find something :excited: ... Still in a bit of shock over how darn good it is, but all hail GimpShop and those who sail in her :strip: :boogie:
When I downloaded it I realised you had to have all the additional bumpfh and nonsense of extra programs/adware as it's completely free, that's right folks it's free :nod: and works on the same principle as Photoshop. They set it up to look and feel like it, slightly different features but once you get into the swing it's very user friendly ... Anyhoo, I d/l'd the 'package', got rid of the unnecessary things and bingo bongo bango I was off and away for a while =P
They have handy tutorials all over the net, and once I worked out my layers from my alpha channels I was in business.
I completed my first manip as of last night :boogie: and hope you like it, it's a simple design as I'm still getting into the swing of it but it made me smile at the end :D I'll be uploading + Sore Thumb + in just a tick.
P.S. Please bear with me for responses to all of your comments, I'll get there!



I love to browse new deviations and find artists that have wicked talent and a gallery full of smashing suprises.
There are also times I will find someone who has little to no recognition, or are new here and, imho, need to have a wider friend and fan base. :nod:
This is what my featurama is about today folks! :squee:
I have found 11 dA artists who I feel are deserving of recognition, love and a random glomp or three for their talent :iconsuperglompplz:
