This is something that some people have been asking for, and I finally had the time to complete it.

Here's the tutorial on how I created "A Break in the Monotony." :heart:

:star: To view the tutorial, click "download." It's a zipped file (if unsure how to unzip files, Google will be your best friend). The tutorial is extremely large. ^^;

I used Photoshop CS4 to create both the artwork and tutorial. Any of the other older versions of PS should be fine for this tutorial.

This was a nightmare to put together. :XD: But I hope it helps.

If you have any issues, please let me know. I will gladly answer any questions you may have. Also, please excuse any typos - I am extremely tired, but I wanted to stay up and get this done. ^_^

If you are completely new to manipulation, please feel free to check out this article prior to trying out any tutorials: Photo-manipulation: A Beginner's Hand Guide

Also, if you do it out, please drop a link if you upload the work. I would LOVE to see it. :love:

Thanks, it's always nice to see how people such as yourself put things together. I am doing some compositing work and am having a heck of a time getting everything just right.. the stock part being the hardest reallY

Finding stock is indeed one of the hardest parts. It's tricky to find just what you're looking for, not to mention something that will fit with everything else. :faint:
