My First Try at Photoshop, How did I do?

This is my first try at Photoshop, do you think I did good? Is this good enough to sell in the marketplace?

I give this as a gift to the community, so feel free to use it in a project!

    not, need to be more professional to get some sale on marketplace

    I am not asking if I should add this to the marketplace (This is free for the community to use) I am just asking if I have the skill to upload to the marketplace.

    FYI, It was designed to look cartoony.

    Skill for the marketplace? Not yet. But keep trying! All artists were at one time amateurs.

    Nice job on those clouds.

    If you want to hone your Photoshop skills, just Google "Photoshop tutorials" and there will be years worth of things you can learn to do in Photoshop. Or just Google specifics, like "Photoshop tree" and things like that.

    Take a look at the marketplace and what's available. There are some top notch graphics there, so you want to do the best you can. If that's your first try, then you have the potential to do really well with Photoshop, if you take some time to learn some advanced techniques, and get familiar with the toolset, and are serious about it, you can do well.

    I have no friends. I'm a loser that makes video games all day. Will you be my friend?

    hmm forgetting something ? (points to inbox)

    anyways. its good for your first try actually. if you're trying to make it look cartoony then don't use that grass brush. make the grass manually with the selection tools or vector shapes

    i had a look and to be honest i think it is a nice image, some people would be looking for that cartoony type imagery and others want something else, keep learning the program and there will be no stopping you.

    For a first time its pretty good. Honestly youtube some tutorials and I am certain it will take your art to the next level. You may also want to check out illustrator as well. Good luck!
