Project Description

Now let's put what we've learned into a project!!

Now that you have seen how I made my image, it's your turn. Go through each class with your own picture, take the steps that I took, and show us what you come up with.

If it turns out great....awesome!! Put it on Facebook and start getting friends to pay you to do this. 

If it turned out not so great....also awesome! Why? Because you're trying. You just need to practice. I have been working with Photoshop for around 20 years now so it's all second nature to me. But it takes time and if you really want to get better you just need to keep practicing.
