  1. I don't understand Step 14

    "Paste wings, as shown. Try different combinations for the best look:"

    How do you paste and get the box in the picture?

  2. I fail to advance beyond the first few steps of this tutorial. Grammar could be improved but is not that much of an issue. What bothers me is how many steps are skips, and how vague the description of every step is. Show more of what you're doing, show more of your screen. We really need to see what you do in order to better understand.

  3. This tutorial absolutely sucks. First off his/her english is bad.. that's not a problem. But you are doing things that some people don't know how to get too and you're skipping steps.

    1. yeah i didnt get it either and seems to miss things out expecting you to know which is hard..
