Stayin' Sharp





While the jump hunt continues, I've been keeping myself busy with some personal projects along with expanding my knowledge and skills of the digital art world. Now that I have entered the realm of Apple with a macbook, I can play around with the Adobe Creative Suite when I please. These two projects above were tutorials completed in Photoshop with the help of a UK mag called Advanced Photoshop (www.advancedphotoshop.co.uk). It's a really helpful tool to use to practice new techniques. I plan on applying these techniques toward my own work. The question I have is why are all the decent art magazines coming from across the pond? It isn't fun paying 15$ per mag. Also my website (www.matthewgayle.com) is now featured on illustrationmundo ,(www.illustrationmundo.com), which is a site that is dedicated to promoting illustrators.

Thank you. with the minor I'll graduate 2010 winter. My wips are done in painter and photoshop. I agree with you on how painter has much more of a traditonal painting quality to it. How's it going?
