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." 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.
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. ^_^
