      Oo, very nice!

      I've started making some simple Photoshop Tutorials as well-- the two I made a few years ago always got lots of traffic -- so I'll lensroll this one on them!

      I use Photoshop a great deal for retouching/masking/compositing/collage, but one thing I don't do is paint from scratch. I am very interested in simple tricks like this one.
