    Awesome tutorial! I’m going to print the final result, frame it and gift it to a friend ^^

    I couldn’t help but notice there are many grammatical errors and such. If you want, I could rewrite your tutorial with correct grammar and syntax and make it “cleaner”.

      Forgot the tutorials are only bought and posted on the site.

      I am sure the people behind the site can proof read tutorial and correct it themselves, so please do so. Or at least let me do it, it really is a pity a good tutorial to be hindered by a language barrier.

    This is a really neat tutorial. The puppet warp on the vines is very clever but I would make it wrap around the tree. The boat and tower have too much contrast and objects that are far away should have some haze to it. Pretend that you are on a mountain and looking far away….. everything fades away in the haze if they are far enough.
