Yeah i been trying to improve on my photoshop skills throught the past few weeks, and really starting to apply them with my photography. I just think that they both together can produce some great results. I have even signed up for a advanced image design course at the university of malmö next term, so hopefully that will help me even more!

so here is what i have to show you guys today:

i started out with a photo of my hand, and then i moved it over to photoshop, where i masked out the hand using the pen tool (learn how to use the pen tool fellas, its great for masking out things and selecting things) and after that i just messed about for about 1h to get the results i wanted, i came up with this idea during the lecture when i was looking at my hand and i saw this fella outside having a smoke...so i combined the two and ended up with the following results:

I hope you guys can enjoy it!

Couple of things:

-Idea is cool, colors are nice and complementing.

What I don't really like is that it's a bit too complicated. The design in general just has too much going on. The smoke brushes you used are nice, but the placement and erasing of the ends could be a bit, 'better?'

I think if you exposed the fingers a bit more, and perhaps lessened the brushing, and perhaps made either your hand or the brush layers darker than the other, you would get a little more detail.

But overall I think you've got a great concept, just in my opinion, it needs a little bit more 'fine-tuning'

Best,
-Sean.
