December 2011 Photoshop Challenge

Hi everyone!

Here is December's Photoshop Challenge:

1) Create an 800x600 image either from a photo or photos you like, or create a texture from scratch. Use ONE WORD which describes you - ONE WORD ONLY - and create an interesting image. Full color, black & white - your choice.

2) Upload the image to the photo album I have created here called "December2011_PSChallenge_typography". Let's see what everyone comes up with!

3) Remember to use a font which conveys the message of the word you chose (NO COMIC SANS PLEASE) and kern your text appropriately. Within Photoshop, you can kern your text this way:

Click with your type tool between two characters and use Alt Left or Right Arrow on Windows (Option Left or Right Arrow on Mac) to kern. Left arrow moves it closer and right arrow adds space. To kern and entire line - also called "tracking", select the entire line and use the same shortcut.

Good luck, all!
