  1. I cannot download the brush, anyway anyone could tell me how to set it, so it fades on both sides...
    Also the other brush.
    Preferebly with sreemshots....
    Thank you.

  2. Nice tutorial but I feel that after step 17 it looks overdone. Also the zombied area of face could be more dark and reddish that would look more natural. By the way extremely well written tutorial.

  3. I'm really liking the tutorials here! But did you really have to use a stock photo of frogs humping each other?

  4. This is amazing! Premium quality tutorial here but the videos should be sped up. You're not kidding when you say it's 10 hours!
