Here are a few of my first digital art avatars.
These are just a few. I have hundreds that I made for people. That is how I got started with the digital art thing. I started with Paint Shop Pro, then moved to Photo Impact 5, then to Adobe Photoshop and Gimp.
I continued making graphics as a hobby for years, but got bored with it and took a hiatus.
How I got into making themes for Android
Smart phones hit the scene like a freight train! The future was here in the form of rectangular devices with a touch screen, the smart phone. I had many dumb phones in my life, and held off getting a smart phone for a year or 2 after the iphone and OG Droid were out. My 2 year was up and I decided to get one of these smart phones. My first smart phone was a Droid X. Now that thing was awesome. Durable, good build quality and materials, bigger screen then the iphone. A match made in heaven. I was cool with how everything looked at first. But I was like, these icons suck!! I wonder if I can make my own? How would I go about getting them on the device? That is when I came out of retirement and started going hard on photoshop and making icons and themes. It was pretty easy. I all ready had the photoshop and design kwoledge. I just needed to learn how Android worked.
