  1. The link that goes to the "tree's" stock takes you to the main profile page of elenaDudina's deviantart account and I can't find the specific file you used in this tutorial. Could you possibly have a look and provide an up to date link. I'd really like to try this tutorial but I can't until I have all the stock or find an appropriate alternative :3
