New Tutorial in the Shop: Advanced Extractions With The Pen Tool

Man, this one took a looooooooong time to put together, but I hope it will help everybody lose their fear of the pen in Photoshop. It's such a handy little tool... =)

And here's the layout that came out of that:

Heather Taylor, Love

Love is pretty much the guiding principle in our family. Love encourages respect and civility; love provides a path through the tangles of anger and frustration; love frees us and gives us comfort. This page grew into the representation of those concepts as I created it...

  1. very cool. and i love the emotion and thoughts this evoked that you shared.

  2. Do you have any idea how much I hate the pen tool? I've tried to like it but UGH. It's not my friend.

    I'm going to put this on my list of things I have to have.


If you want an answer directly, please provide your e-mail, as I'm unable to access it... =) Thanks!
