  1. Thanks for the tutorial. I followed your guidelines closely, and although I had to substitute images for the floor and cutlery (the original images were no longer available), I was able to replicate your original fairly well. I am using the completed image for an assignment in a college class. Thanks so much

  2. Awesome work and tutorial, Michael! Congrats!
    Let me add a correction: at step 36 the gradient map regulation level must be added with the LUMINOSTY blend must have forgotten to write it down :)

  3. Been looking at your tutorials and portfolio ... thanks a lot for sharing. Beautiful stuff. I really appreciate it.

  4. Great tutorial; thank you!
    FYI: The "Download the PSD" link points to the 'Big Fish' PSD rather than the file for this tutorial.
