Well, Thanks guys!
Compared to some of Paul's and a few others I've seen on the forum, its just a good start. if you guys really want to see some great stuff check out the Digital Art forum in the thread "Show Us Your OOB's." that Paul mentioned, its worth a look.

Paul, that's one SWEET bike! I'll take all you can get.

Mtnman, here is the link for the tutorial Paul mentioned. http://www.flickr.com/photos/28466683@N00/153507433

I had some trouble with it when I got to pg 21 but, I did a work around and got the same results. I think it may have been the difference between versions of Photo Shop.

Life's a breeze on a Goldwing...

GW, you've done far more than a good start. I'm not sure which technique is on your page 21. With mine, it's painting on the layer mask, allowing the gradient to show through. The technique I've had trouble with is the drop shadow (p. 26 on the version of the tutorial I downloaded). I just can't get it to work the way it's supposed to, and I've decided it's a PSE thing.

mtnman, there is one thing I realized was not covered in the tutorial. PSE 7 does not technically include a layer mask, although there is a work-around. There is a very simple free plug-in that is easily installed to add mask capability to PSE 7. It's probably the single editing tool I use most....not just for OOB's, but for everyday editing as well. The link is:


Kep "playing to learn," GW. The more of them you do, the more comfortable you'll feel.
