It's spring break here. This means that very few people are knocking at my door. I like to use thsi kind of time for "professional development" which for me is code word for learning more about software I like. So I have been trying to learn more about Photoshop. One thing I did today was worked on using various tools to soften, vary, and creating some lighting effects in what had been flat vector drawings. I posted the man earlier today. Here's that same man, with some tweaking. On an unrelated note, I have begun a new animation. There will be castle in this one. Not the one below -- but the one below is derived from the one for the cartoon.
