: How to Deal With A Person who thinks hes a pro in Digital Arts? (PhotoShop CS6)

I Have this friend who always boasts about his skill at editing in photoshop cs6
he always boast his photoshop edits in me, He is one hell of a sarcastic dude
i am irritated at him sometimes, So may i ask you people of the forum?
what is art? is it need to awsome,cool,beautiful or in digital arts does it need to
be perfect , does it need to cool? i use photoshop cs6 because i love editing anime
pictures btw he edits anime pictures too.

I don't know how to deal with him , I think his way of thinking on digital arts that it needs to be
perfect, cool ,awsome i think that's his mindset while editing.

I know that its normal to criticize and boast your work but to tell me that he is a pro even though
he's not that good , I'm not saying that im good in photoshop but i find it funny how he thinks like that
maybe because that's his dream i think?

So i ask again people in the forum What is Art/Digital Arts?
No Offence and im sorry about my grammar, im just curious :angel:

whatever you want it to be. you decide for yourself if you accept other peoples opinions even if they are proven. its still for yourself to decide ... for yourself ^^

hard to tell skill level since no ressource is shown but its safe to say in all honesty that there is a lot more to being "a pro" than choping some anime pictures together.
also it doesnt matter. just do what you think works for you. if you want to get better then work for it. if you are fine with what you can do already simply enjoy it.

professional doesn't mean skilled it simply means one is paid to do it, theres unskilled professionals in all trades they're known globally as "jack of all trades skill of none" or "useful idiots" & you don't want to be one of those people!
take me as example I'm an expert digital artist and a master of photoshop but I'm not a professional :)
