I finally got my tablet to work properly with my new computer, so I decided to do a test manipulation to see if I needed to tweak the settings any more. Seems like everything is running fine. Now I just need to figure out all the buttons and doo-dads on the new version of creative suite.

I do think that some (probably not "a lot," but certainly some) people use this technique and then claim to have done their work from scratch. Which is very disappointing. I don't think that there is anything inherently wrong with making artwork like this, as long as you only use your own photos or valid stock photos. But I think it is very wrong to lie about your methods! That's why I try to make it very clear that my paintover photo manips have photos as their base. And I also prefer to use my own personal photos... after all, I put in a lot of work taking the photos! It's not as easy as just using someone elses'.
it looks amazing!
totally like a digital drawing
