Playful play with prickly pineapples... :D

Playful play with prickly pineapples... :D - student project

Well, at first it wasn't "all" playful play.  I did something wrong, so I decided to just start over from the beginning.  I had done quite a bit after starting over -- without saving the document -- when Photoshop decided to crash on me (which rarely happens).  I will make sure to save the document right away from now on. Haha!  That said, from there on out, everything went fine -- and I am so excited about what I have learned here!

Oh, and...layer comps...they are a dream!  I had heard of them, but didn't know anything about what they can do -- and how awesome they are.  I have spend a lot of time turning this eye and that eye on and off, trying to remember what I had done in a document, and what combinations I had liked the best.  This will be wonderful!

The following are my color dodge and white negative pineapples, in that order:

I actually love these hard mix looks...fun!  I love how parts of this one blend into the same-colored background.
