This is my first serious attempt at painting in photoshop. I used my legarm image and a mouse to color it. The more i see it the less i like it and that is not a bad thing. All of my images are 'finished at the moment' ei: finished untill I learn more and make them better. Hopefully I will never finish any of them.

Har good ol' Legarm, me and him used to hang out at the local pub and...oh um.. *grin* The colours are great, the lighting is quite neat and just enough to give him a nice slime in the dark kinda glow! The rocks look brilliant and yeah mousework is cool, but you get a tablet and you waon't know yourself! Whoo, I love that drool, it just, well..oozes just so well! ^_^ Great work, cool atmospherics!

You have a good depth thing going there, and seem to have captured the light well. The rocks look good too. The only thing I would like to point out is the ummm, Freudian slips in the plant that looks like testicles and the jaw that looks like down hanging breasts, not to mention the - well, we won't mention them!

Hi Sherwood.. Wooo - impressive work - especially as you've done this with a mouse, I could never draw very well with a mouse. He's excellent... I hope life is going well for you..12.

I think the light and shadows, most of all on his right arm and shoulder, are wonderful. As about the rest, yes, perhaps something could be improved, but I think it's good anyway.

Ah, exellent coloring! Much darkness to my liking, and the mood is just awesome! The background, I really love that background... Yes, perhaps he frontal wiew's not the very best in a pic like this, but it does create a strong illusion that you've met this bugger in real life just now, and it's about to eat you for dinner. Lovely!

I like the pic. I've only tried once at photoshop...it was tragic...really. Any-hoo, I also like your outlook on 'finishing' pieces. I really like it and agree with it totally.
-God bless =)
