Photo shop: not just for saving jpgs anymore?

Well, thanks to Mike "Ridiculous" Rizkalla i had to teach myself how to use photoshop for making pictures, not just converting an image file into some other kind of image file.
Anyway i started to like it, so I tried to push myself to the limits of my Photoshop knoledge and do a painting. So if any photoshop wizards (Grant) can point out any stupid mistakes I made feel free, 'cause i'm really just playing a guessing game with this thing.I put a canvase texture on it, because I'm really not a huge fan of the smoothness of airbrushing. I likes it ruff! Is that cheating? it's the only filter I used. I promise!

All you think about is boobies, boobies at breakfast, boobies at lunch, boobies at dinner, boobie all night, now a freakin' boobie tree!!! is this becasue i said boobies dont grow on trees!!!

Covoluted creative constructive critisism: One too many boobies, it takes away from the juxtaposed realisms of the javant-garde visual you are portraying through the laganoia color balance. Perhaps multiple nipples on the same one boobie would convey a more pragmatic and magnanimous issue with a self-definable identity in this piece of anti-intellectualism. Overall, very postmodern and enigmatic.

LOL, I've always said you were a 'boob-man'. Not that I'm discouraging this obssession, mind you... boobs are great, after all.

Anyhoo... the painting! Yes, well, it's rendered nicely. Playing around with photoshop is the best way to discover your style and whatever process you feel most comfortable with. Keep going man, looks like you're doing fine! Just try to maintain a nice tonal variety so the images don't look flat (unless that's what you want).

Cheers!

Nice man... disturbing ideas come to mind when thinking about what it is you plant to grow one of these.
