Suggestions Please - Teejay
« on: June 22, 2017, 01:44:50 am »
i would really like to know  if there is anything you would like to learn or do in the workshops  :elmo:
the workshop belongs to all of us and i thought it about time i asked

is there a tool you want more practice with or maybe something like layers work or adjustments.
is there any tutorials you have found and thought it would be good for all of us to do .
is there anything we have touched on but you would like more
in short
what would you like to do in the workshops
i was thinking each of us could sugest a tutorial to do ..
each month a sacrificial person is chosen and they get to choose a tutorial for us all to do.
then we lob smelly veg at them after....lol... only joking... sort of..

so c'mon out with it ... whats the score..

Great idea TJ. I sure would like to learn more brushes. Also in AD creating shadows is difficult.  Are there any settings that someone has found great? like in PSP. That is one thing that I miss

I'd go for both kinds of brushes TeeJay, but I do love the pixel brushes :)

What a great idea, Teejay!!  I would like to see some uses for the Pixel side other than brushes.  What would one do with it and are there any tutorials so we can actually use it?

Not sure about picking someone to choose the next tut though.   How about asking for volunteers to sign up to find a tut.  When they find one they like, they can send it to you privately, then you can post it on your regular schedule and give them credit.   That would work.  :angel04:

San, go for it!!  We definitely need more "in-house" tutorials!!!

I spent quite a bit of time yesterday looking at various tutorials related to artboards.  Most of the video tuts are really terrible!  The guys think you need a full history lesson before they get started.  One guy was 4 minutes into the video and still hadn't started doing anything. I hate when they add the comparisons to other graphic programs.  I just go on to the next tut.   One guy mumbled so much you couldn't follow him, he wasn't prepared.  No one wants to sit and watch the trial and error stuff.

I need to write some more tuts too but right now, not only  is it hot enough to fry eggs on the street, my brain is feeling the same way!

So, how about it gang, let's go find some good tuts for Teejay to present!! :clap2: :clap2: :clap2: :clap2:

It's very rare that I have any kind of a  headache so I really don't know what a migraine is but I've heard they can be pretty bad.  Hope yours passes quickly!!! :wideeye:

well, MaryLou if you enjoy puking, not being able to stand light or noise.. lol you'd love a migraine. and yes I know being on a computer doesn't help. but being in dark quiet room didn't help either.. so might as well be on computer.. and it's better :)

 


Keep on smiling! It will make people wonder what you're up to!! :)
