WOW! I didn't realize how many comments there were for this tutorial until I started trying to find the last page! I gave up at page 26...:shocked: Don't remember if I left a comment when I downloaded, but wanted to say thanks just in case I forgot. Also wanted to mention that it must have been fate that I found your work...I'm currently reading a novel, The Doomsday Key, and part of the story takes place is Oslo. Now, what kind of coinky dink is that? I'm definitely making it a point to watch out for more of your tutorials!! :+devwatch: Thanks again.

:excited: Thanks so much for this great tutorial!! I can't wait to give some of these ideas a try. I am NOT an artist, :blush: so I need all the help I can get if I want to create anything worth looking at.

As a side note: I normally DO NOT use any of the links provided on DA - even when they're great brushes that I really want - because I hate to use external sites, especially those that will direct me to one of those stupid and annoying :pee:file sharing sites where you're bombarded with dozens of pop ups. In this case, however, I MADE A QUICK EXCEPTION TO THAT RULE, and will be making a very fast 'trip' :sprint: to your site to see what else you've created. Thanks again for the great tutorials and I'm looking forward to seeing much more of your amazing work in the future. God bless!

Hey, I'm having some trouble with the Colour burn texture layer for making a demon. Just wondering, does the picture have to be quite light for best effect?
