Dragon Book

A simple vector book following a RealDraw tutorial, I added a clipart Dragon. I found the site below really brilliant, there are tutorials, including the book, textures, tips and tricks to get you started.

New Software

Just before Christmas I came across RealDraw Pro, fantastic software! I am only just starting to get a hang of some of it's capabilities. One of the most impressive allows wmf files (clipart) to be imported and completely changed using built in styles. This sunburst was created using the 'follow path' tool. Do take a look and try it for 30 days. A brilliant vesatile, stand alone program.

I did not realise that a virtual life could become every bit as hectic as real life. It came to me today that the only way to keep up is to write a list lol...

18 months ago I started on a journey to discover my past, completely unaware at the time how absorbing and fascinating this would be. Along the way I have become aquainted with family both far and near, many that I regularly email.

Last August I was invited to write a tutorial for the new PaintshopPro Photo magazine. It was both scary and exciting. I was then invited to look after the Tips and tricks section. This included two pages on improving and creating an effect on a readers photo, and two pages of tips and tricks for Psp. I was so sad when after only 8 editions, Imagine publications dropped the magazine. From a personal point of view, I felt, and I know others did, that it was not aimed at the right market. That said writing for the magazine was a fantastic experience.
