Photoshop Abuse by kevinbolk Photoshop Abuse by kevinbolk
Or "How to make any remotely skilled digital artist cry."

This was the art for one of the slides for my "10 Things I Hate About Webcomics" panel I put together for Zenkaicon 2011. The idea behind the whole thing was to poke fun at common webcomics tropes, cliches, and/or bad habits and to help new creators recognize them and then either avoid them or exploit them.

This slide went with the "Horrible Misuse of Image Software" segment. It was hard to do and even harder to look at. I tried to remember back to all the mistakes I used to make when I first learned Photoshop and crammed them all into one horrifying mess. Can you spot them all? XD

Oh, and for the love of Godbeard, DO NOT FAVORITE THIS IMAGE. If this makes it anywhere near the front page I am MURDERING THE LOT OF YOU.

Ok, I'm too much a softie to do that. I will just die a little inside and gently weep onto my tablet. You wouldn't want to make me cry, would you?

BTW, the "Asian Princess Kevi-Chan" drawing for this image was taken from this comic...


:::EDIT:::- Oh, look. Front page. Well then....

You are all finks. HILARIOUS finks, but finks nonetheless. :D

Looks a lot like my childhood years... when whamming effects and blasting overdone stuff was COOL.
But not any more... MY EYES! D: They bleed! Aaah!
Lol!

If this did get front page, it would be a great work of irony.

Kevin, you're going to give me nightmares with this picture. Let's see all the things wrong here:

1. The image in the background isn't rasterized.
2. The pixels are blinding me
3. That text in the corner takes away from the picture
4. Those birds are a... brush, I believe. And
5. LOL I love your Kevi-Chan thing. But its just a little scary.

Did I win?? :)
Great job by the way.
