Woooooowww, you must've been hyper to write that much!
-Throws King Kong at you- xD
Fuuu ... i think everybody starts off by messing around. I wish I could've started all this earlier, but then I didn't know that there was a way to get these programs "for free" I used GIMP before. Great stuff.
And keep working you! I need challenge. Sasurai stopped - damnation.
Right now I have Flaw, Gwen, Pyro, You, Fooligar, Defbeat and Sazzy to compete with n_n I now have a plan to esceed my current creative limits. Hehe.
I didn't know we were friends before ^_^ Doesn't make a difference, though. Where do you live by the way?
Hmm, I get excited like a baby when I discover a new effect or get a great result xD Makes me feel better.
I just started to fool around in photoshop at a very young age, and I learned over the years. I've been mastering illustrator since 2,5 years now and I'm currently trying to animate my designs in Flash. Also, I like to combine illustrator and photoshop to give it more effect. And well I started being noob >_>, and I'm kinda worked myself to get better. Also I need to design a lot of things for college. Lot's of assignments and projects leads for opening photoshop and illustrator XD.
I'm 20, not way older then you though. You don't really need tutorials to learn how to photoshop, but it might be handy for some effects you want to give to your designs. If I'm inspirationless I sometimes got the nerve to look up some advance tutorials and make something with that, just to fool around. Sometimes it leads to being able to make something that you never done before, and that can be a plus for your next design. I hardly do so anymore though, now I just look around for other peoples designs (great designers) to get inspiration from. And try to make my own designs a little bit better .
It's all about the passion Rave, it's all about the passion <3
Kekeke, interesting ^_^ I never knew you were so experienced. I thought you were around my age? I'm 17.
I think there is one thing in common between all graphic designers, no matter what the field - passion and the excitement we experience. And what you said, too. Haha.
How much do you practice? I've been doing this for the past one or one and a half years. :S I don't even refer to tutorials, lol.
Lol I'm handy with Adobe Design package since I've been doing it for over 7 years now :P. I'm studying to be an interaction and visual designer. I design games (flash), interfaces (websites or applications) and graphic stuff all the time. It's really my passion, and I want to grow and get better and better . So I have been practicing a lot to get as far as I am now. I'm alright though, I think I'm still growing .
You're not bad yourself . I like your design style, guess you've been practicing too huh ! Anyway, I was your buddy when we had our old profiles, let's redo the bond :P. How are you btw?
How did you get so good at photoshop? ^_^
