    I loved this tutorial. Some parts were hard to understand but searching for the answer got me more familiar with Photoshop. The only thing i really didn’t like was the section where you make a blend in Illustrator. I don’t know enough about the program to know how to do that. I had to leave it out because I couldn’t figure it out. A little more detail on that part would really help. Other than that, great job. Thank you

    I enjoyed your tutorial. A few of the steps were confusing as I am learning some of the tools. A few things were not explained, like having to take off the multiply blend mode from the second male head so the invert worked. All in all very nice job!
