Did you know that I’m very proficient in photoshop? I started back in college. I had an interest in photography and I was already a cosplayer and somehow I learned about Gnu Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) through two friends who loved LINUX. I taught myself how to use it. After a couple years I got access to Photoshop in a class. It’s pretty much like GIMP so I learned it too. My professor even offered for me to teach his class once. I declined but I ended up teaching a couple of panels on it some years later.
Over the years sometimes I get to use it for work but I still dabble in it for my own personal enjoyment. One of my favorite pastimes is fixing cosplay photos. I can’t tell you how many pictures I come across that are nice, but they just have a problem that keeps them from being as nice of a picture as it could be. Then I’ll give the very happy owner the picture to use as they wish.
Anywho, I like never show off my own work and it is about time I did. Here are some examples from over the years.
This is only some of the stuff. There are dozens more that were lost to time or the ever changing internet. It’s fun to see where we come from no?
