  1. Me gusta el tutorial, el efecto es muy bueno. Pero deberías ser un poco mas especifica en ciertos pasos y resumir otros.
    En algunos quedaba en la duda de las capas que debía tomar o quedaban lagunas que explicabas mas tarde, de todas maneras gracias por el tutorial y a seguir mejorando siempre.

  2. the "texture" link leads to nothing and i dont know what the texture looks like so i can't even find an alternative. i do like the final picture it's interesting. but the tutorial is slightly hard to follow

  3. was not impressed with directions and had a hard time following. to make exact, i had to adjust against the directions to properly complete.

  4. There is a missing important part you forgot to put in between part 15 and 16. It doesn't explain how you got the eye sockets to be black, doesn't explain how you blended the outer skull bits with the skin, doesn't tell you that you also darkened the forhead
