This is my first contest at FN. I saw one of Rodney Pikes post on G+ and thought this would be fun. Win I read about all the Awards Michale Cain had won I thought to myself, , I bet hes got a big head. So, after I blew up his head, I filled it with hot air. Happy birthday Mr. Cain. hope everyone enjoys this as much as I did making it. Member reactions:
Thanks everyone for the kind words and boost of confidence. I better not let it go to my head though, don't want to end up floating away like Mr. Caine. Haha I can see myself becoming a freakingnews junkie.
This is excellent. Impressive attention to detail. Love the way you have included the seams on the balloon.
Really enjoyed the illustrative quality to your entry. A quality I would like to become proficient with. I always enjoy good tips if you have any to pass along. Welcome to the site. You and I are both new. ; )
Thanks. I'm still pretty new to all this myself. I have only been doing caricatures for about 6 weeks, and I have only had Photoshop for 10 months. I would be glad to pass along any tips or help in any way I can. The main thing that helps me is practice. I spend about 40 to 50 hours a week working on my skills. If you have any questions I will do my best to help.
Thanks AzureSky. That was just the burn tool with a small brush and a steady hand . It really helped make the balloon believable though. You wouldn't happen to know how I make my name visible instead of hidden author would you.
After the voting is over, UR name will appear like Magic.
