Otherwise, you end up making things from scratch in your drawing and image applications or purchasing commercial use items. Andrea has some great classes here for Photoshop and Illustrator that will get you started with a great foundation. Check them out in the store!
--yeah, what she said! lol
I know you are taking one of the classes here- kuddos to you!
I make/paint/ photograph my own now. I sometimes use public domain images, but you must be VERY careful- especially with the new laws that have passed, and for example, the VW- since it was a local photo I thought it was ok, but some inventors/manufacturers copyright the images of their work, and not just the item! You can buy images if you want, and there are some .99 sites out there, but you STILL have to check and make sure that multiple copies are ok. Talk to me more about this in a chat, Christina.
