Yesterday and today we learned the basics of Photoshop. Today we altered a tongue to be in the shape of a frog. I was really happy about this project because I love using Photoshop, but I've never had anybody teach me how to use the tools. My picture I think looks pretty good and a bit realistic. I feel very successful about this project. The hardest part was cloning the tongue and making sure it looks realistic. I learned a lot of new ways to use Photoshop after doing this project and can't wait to apply these new skills at home doing other projects.

What we had to do for this project was to create a still life portrait using pastels. Pastels were pretty difficult for me to use, especially blending and making sure everything is in the right place. I think this project was successful in the sense that I had not used pastels since elementary school. But if you look at how well the portrait is done overall, its not that great.
