    hey! I followed this tutorial thoroughly and I made it exactly like yours and it definitely helped me a lot to improve my PS work and to gain experience. I always wanted to make something like professionals as I’m beginner so keep posting such amazing works but I’ve also a complain as well there are lots of steps you didn’t necessarily mentioned in this tutorial and so that I had to find in the screenshots to make it look correct:))

    Thanks for this. Mine turned out with slightly different tones to it, just for personal taste really. But I really appreciate the tutorial – I learned a lot, especially the Puppet tool, which I never knew about!

    Gunna save me SO much time! haha.
