  1. The steps listed don't seem to be the ones actually used. It's not working out at all, for example coloring over the eyes makes the eyes no longer visible.

  2. WOW!!! that’s a really informative article, I am very much inspired. Your tutorial helps me as like my mentor, i am looking forward to more informative article form you.

  3. This is great, but It isn't working for me because of the way I am drawing the texture? Are you using a tablet?

  4. I have only started using photoshop for things other than photo retouching. It is amazing how much you can do with the program once you get into it and start to use the tools the proper ways.

  5. This is a very cool effect, but I can't create it in Photoshop CS5 or Photoshop CS6 or Photoshop CC2015. Do you not have an updated version?

  6. I have wanted to make something like this for a project I have in school. This tutorial should do the trick!

  7. Wow. This is stunning! Great job here. And thanks for sharing the steps on how you achieved this, will give it a shot when I have some spare time.
