  1. Очень замечательный урок!:) Делаю с огромным удовольствием!:) Правда остановился на 33 шаге, не могу сообразить где эта часть горы которую нужно вставить в правый угол на передний план. Уже измучился и не пойму как тут разобраться:) Просидел над этим куском горы уже весь день:)) Неужели тут придётся вырисовывать... так скажем проявить смекалку...)

    1. I don't understand where have you found (seen) the steps in this tut.?
      sorry, but I can't see them(
      hope you help me
