    Criticism? You asked for it.
    My sister has some interest in photoshop, did a short course too, so I'll divide my critique into two categories: the making tools and the effect you brought.
    Amaranth:
    1) You did about three major effects, and I can distinguish about three layers. It's okay.
    2) Looks fine. Nothing too special.
    VMC:
    1) You combined a bucket and something like that kind of stuff, with some marble paint effect. Cool idea.
    2) Too...too. It's too full of vibrancy.
    See the ghost: isn't loading. Bleh.
    Irresistible curves: Not my genre.

    The first one I like, I don't really know what to say about it though...

    I don't like the second one personally. Though it does stick in the mind and capture the eye really well. Maybe this is just not my kind of visual art...

    I loved the third one. That is just awesomely awesome. Loved it to pieces.

    Fourth is alright. I am not too sure though. It does capture the eye, but it isn't that striking in my opinion. There is nothing that really leaves a lasting impression upon my mind. Maybe you could add a hint of faded colour to it somewhere to give it a more eye catching look to it....just a thought, I'm not too good with this sort of thing to be honest.

    I aint sure what to say about them, the first three were not to my taste but I loved the last one, Irresistible Curves. I would have something like that on my walls, I loved it.

    I like the last one best. ^^

    The one with the eyes looks a bit comic book-ish. Was that your intention? I don't like the way the eyes are just plonked down... It seems a little hurried. Though it wouldn't give the same effect if they were all blurred into each other... I actually quite like it now. xD

    sorry, none of them did anything for me, artistically, though it does make me curious...

    what is 'photoshopings'?... i've never heard of it... what's a 'shope' and what does the composite word mean?

    do you use your own photos?... or do you ask permission to use others'?

    Photoshop is a computer program that allows you to edit pictures and do all kinds of things with them. People who are really good can splice photos and make it look like impossible things are happening in the picture. The term "photoshopping" can best be explained by how the term "I'll google" it came about to explain I'll search for it on Google.

    I used mostly my own photos. See the Ghost wa the only one that I used stock photos on, and the white Amaranth overlay was clip-art off a disc my dad had.
