ICON/TEXTURE TUTORIAL BY WESTERBREEZE

TO /

PHOTOSHOP.DIFFICULTY: 05/10


WARNING:
THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE OF HOW TO USE TEXTURES
IT'S NOT THE ONLY WAY, THERE ARE UNLIMITED WAYS
-
NOT EVERYONE HAS THE SAME TASTE, SO IF YOU THINK THAT I'VE USED
THE TEXTURES IN AN UGLY WAY OR SOMETHING ELSE NOT TO YOUR LIKING...
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME HERE.

I don't want to sound cruel but I don't want to have comments about the tutorial that it's ugly etc.
This is just my taste and respect it, then I'll respect yours.

THANK YOU

ENJOY!!!
