I look forward to having my students try this assignment. I learned a lot about stroke and grouping. It's always great to learn something new in Photoshop. Thanks.

Sandy, glad you enjoyed it. I like to introduce the layer effects early on with students so they start to think about how they can use them to add depth, and have the ability to come back and edit while designing. Grouping is also something I try to get into the students heads early on, or at least naming layers. I have had projects turned in with a 100 layers, none of them labeled. It can become a big mess. If you have any questions please contact me at anytime!

Thank you, again Sean for taking time out of your day to Educate me on the typography that is used in comic books. The experience was great, and I will defiantly be coming back to the Education exchange for more of it.

For a first time user I would rate this 10/10.

This is amazing and so are you Sean! I can't wait to work on this with my students. So many avenues for research too! I'm going to make a Superhero poster using my lil' Yorkie Phoebe as a Puppy-Superhero to show my kids what is possible. I'll send it your way via Twitter after it's complete:-) My Twitter handle is FooFighter@imwtheband
