Tutorials, yay or nay?

For ages I have been wanting to write tutorials for my website. But where should I begin and what should or should I not include? Can I expect that my site visitors already have somewhat of an experience or should I start from scratch and add basic tutorials like how to install certain software and how to use it?

The thing is that writing tutorials is SO much work, especially if you want to do it right. Which of course I want, but I’m usually to lazy to get the job done.

Anyhow, let me know what you think and what kind of tutorials  you would like to see.

Tutorials I’ll offer:

  • Paint Shop Pro
  • Photoshop
  • Gimp

I also MIGHT offer video editing tutorials in the future, but I’m not sure about that yet as I still don’t know how various software works myself.

Having that said I wish you a wonderful day or evening depending on where in the world you are.

Long time no see, Imageready!

Lately I have been wanting to get back into the Imageready ballgame. I had enjoyed myself so much all these years ago that I decided to dust off my old version of Photoshop CS2 and Imageready. The newer versions of Photoshop come without imageready and I’m not ready to learn a trick I already know in another manner.

This is what I came up with:
A Disturbed icon and a NCIS Signature

[DRAWING TIPS AND TRICKS] Blending with colored pencil

Since I’m a very creative person (or so I’d like to think anyways) I’m always trying new stuff. Today I want to share a videotutorial with you about blending with coloured pencils. Since last saturday I’m the proud owner of a magnificent full set of Derwent Coloursoft pencils and I’m having a blast watching youtube tutorials and trying things out. It seems only fair that I share the video’s that work best for me with you as well.

Featuring today is a video made by Pencilstash, about 6 different blending techniques, She teaches in a very calm manner and has a nice voice to listen to.
Note: You can blend with any kind of colored pencil, even the cheap ones! It just takes time, patience ad a LOT of practise.
Enjoy!
