Cartoon Classics

Okay, I broke down and bought Photoshop Elements 9. And I will be the first to admit that it is cool with cool features, but is not nearly as user friendly as Paintshop Pro.

Still it came a link to Photoshop Elements Techniques Learning Center website which includes a free download of a sample of their magazine. (I think I will have to consider subscribing). One of the articles in the download is how to turn your photos into illustrations. I have been having tons of fun using it and can you just image making your own graphic novel with all of those pictures from a party, family get-together, etc....

Here are some I did from Nuke's Viking wedding. In the first I deliberately left the background and Pan's chain mail, just illustrating his face, arms, pants legs and shoes, then illustrating all of Nuke and Bear. Yep, I can just see a graphic novel in the making. If you have Elements 9, give it a try. I think you will like it.
