I am part of the online world called “Second Life” (click here to go to my Second Life scrapbook) and am extremely grateful to have an art gallery of my own in world. A few days ago my partner, Rick, and I opened up the heArt-a-Day wing at what is known as “The Little Gallery of Art on Peace Island”. In Second Life there are many, many opportunities to put Photoshop skills to use. Today’s heart is my first attempt at what I hope will be a decoration in Second Life. I’ve had to learn about “alpha channels” that makes it so the areas around the image are transparent. It was a teeth gritting experience. I’ll be giving it a test run later to see if it worked.

At any rate, this is today’s effort using Photoshop CS2 and a heart shape using some WoW! styles that I tweaked.
