    Really...how long should it take to create an overflowing toilet effect similar to this!? Seems like I wasted way too much time on it yesterday and didn't get anything I liked.

    Maybe I am stressing about the new addition to our family next week...idk

    I plan on studying up on photoshop this winter...

    A tablet & stylus would make a photo effect like that much easier; so you could vary your brush pressure. Another way would be to use source images of waterfalls, that's what it looks like the original artist did.

    Feel the same way with AI.
    Open photoshop and I can do so many things w/ ease.
    Just very comfortable with it.

    Artificial photo composition is a skill like any other. If you're not doing it 8 hours a day it's going to take you a long a-- time when you need to do it.

    I personally would stage a photo shoot, but that's how I roll. You could probably find a stock image ready to go though and it would cost you a lot less in money than it would in time to learn a skill you don't have.

    It seems to be the same for me as well. I started learning off of Ai, but Corel seems to get things done quicker compared to Ai.

    Although, you practice the long method often enough, even that can be done pretty quick.

    I can use the embroidery side of my software (which does have pure vector tools, not just embroidery vector tools) and be far more efficient then just the regular version of Corel and/or Ai.

    All you gotta find in Photoshop is drop shadow, glow, emboss, lens flare & page curl and you will have mastered 99% of the tools most used in Photoshop sign work....
