My very first Photoshop illustration -ever-. I know there's still a long way to go. I still need lots of practice but I'm happy with my first project. Thank you Joel, because at some point I thought "Wow, I REALLY suck at this" but as I was watching one of your videos from additional resources, you told us not to be discouraged and intimidated by other artists and their amazing works, to be patient and give it time. That's how I was feeling. I was comparing my work with your amazing panda, with other great illustrators' work, and with the amazing final projects by other students in this course. I was feeling really down and mediocre, but thanks to your encouragement, I feel brave enough to post this, even though I know it's far from perfect. I promise I'll be practicing a lot and getting better everyday. Who knows? Maybe one day I'll be working at Pixar lol, a girl can dream.
Thank you Joel, I loved this course!! You're amazing! :)
