I’m the first to admit that my graphic editing abilities are fairly limited. I don’t fancy myself a graphic designer and I find the entire process of working with image editing software to be downright torturous. Perhaps if I wasn’t severely limited by my inability to see colors I would feel different, but I think I’d still find it frustrating because half the time I hate anything to do with computers.
However, it is an excellent tool for procrastination. And now and again I make something like the above that I find kind of, well, fascinating. Your mileage may vary, but for reference this is the original photo, which I am inordinately fond of.
