This was my first attempt at painting with photoshop. I started messing around on my Wacom Bamboo tablet, trying to get a feel for the brush tool. A client of mine is creating a music website with an avian theme, and I was inspired to paint soft feathers. I'm happy with how it came out. Any tips or suggestions, please comment!

Nice. Welcome to dribbble.
Looks great.. welcome to dribbble ++++
looks good welcome:)
Wow, this looks sexy!
Hey thanks everyone! I'm already liking this community. So many talented folks! More shots of my other work to come.
Looks good a like it. Can i just say if you define the lines more to make it look like a feather you could turn this single feather into a bird of preys head? that would be clever!! =) ps welcome to dribbble.
@Kathryn Wells nice debut Kathryn, welcome to dribbble :)
@Carl Goldson Wow, I love that idea! I can see it now! Would I turn that into a "rebound?" I'm still learning the nomenclature of the dribbble community :D And thanks!
@Fabio Benedetti Thanks! So excited to be here! Being a freelancer can be like working in a bubble, so it's nice to have a place to be inspired and to interact with other creatives!
yeah just click rebound on the left to upload an revised example when you have done it. Glad you see what i see =)
Beautiful :) Definitely a great start. One good way to help clean up your work is roughing in the values first with a harder-edged brush, and then going in to soften things up afterwards.
@Avi Jacob, thank you so much for the guidance! I'm new to starting out with values first in my painting, but it makes so much sense. I work with black pen in my moleskine a lot, so it will feel somewhat familiar. I'm excited to try it out with the Wacom. Thanks for the encouragement!
