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:
