Figure I would upload a few blunders done in photoshop. Its quite difficult to make things not look cheap in this program! Maybe its because there are so many novice artists using it and putting pieces up on Deviantart. Or its just too clean for my taste. There are ways to to make the image aged and with different textures but heh, don't know how to do that yet.
Anyway the first little picture is of some characters from this childishly drawn futuristic murder mystery I've been thinking creating and the second piece is just a dumb portrait, nothing new, but it did lead me to think of doing a series of portraits of real people involving my growth idea.
