  1. As the model in the stock being used, and having seen several versions other artists have created using this tutorial, it would be honestly very nice if artists trying to recreate the styling and theme would see if they can do the same thing using alternative stock - of which there are thousands available. The point of tutorials is to make suggestions and provide tips to artists looking to improve their techniques or learn new ones, not to make identical and in some cases poor reproductions of the work used in the tutorial. Change it up people!! :)

  2. An outstanding design sharing that's very helpful for me. As a graphics designer I have just learned some new technique today from this blog. Thanks and appreciate it.

  3. This is really cool. I really like the idea; erasing a flag to make it look worn out.

    This makes me wonder if you can do it to clothes too. I never even think about making fabric look worn out, I just find worn out stocks which is hard to come by.
