Learning photoshop

A bit of a departure for the blog this time. I've managed to get a copy of corel paint shop pro through work and I've been trying to learn how to use it. One of the things I really wanted to be able to do was combine two or more photos of the same miniature into a single image. You often see these on proper blogs and painting sites so I thought I'd see if I could do the same.

It proved a bit tricky on my old computer, but I've attached my first attempt. I'm going to use this technique to make composite images for entry into the Pendraken painting competition, in order to get more views of the same thing into my entry.
Tiger Soldier
This is a miniature I painted for the Corvus Belli game Infinity, which is a 28mm skirmish game. This guy is a Tiger Soldier. The composite image is seriously large, so I recommend clicking on it where you'll be able to see the figure in excruciating close-up! (And see all my mistakes!!) I'll probably post up some more photos of a few Infinity figures I've been working on as well as my Mantic kings of war figures, which have been seriously distracting me from Warmaster.

However, never fear, there are Carthaginian Heavy Cav, Roman Auxiliary bowmen and Roman Auxiliary cavalry in the pipeline, as well as my Pendraken painting comp entries.
