  1. ПОТРЯСАЮЩЕ! Все понятно! Спасибо Вам огромное, Вы очень качественно объясняете!!

  2. I am truly pleased because are now able to make $5886 because of this site here: just Google without gaps EasyLaptop Life .c o m

  3. Excellent job on the video man – no bullshit, just the tutorial. Nowadays, due to the ad-pocalypse, many tutorials are being stretched out to 10 minutes just for extra ad revenue, but I like that this vidoe isn't doing the same thing. Good luck on your future videos and projects!

  4. Hi sir, I did everything like you, and when I click linear burn, everything get dark, I see only few word, everything is dark, any help?

  5. Nice tutorials but i was almost about to sleep, its nice to keep beginners vids slow and easy but such kind of vids are for semi-pros and pros and they dont need that!

  6. Can someone help me? I am at 10:32min so i'm trying to open my displacement file. My problem is that this file wont open, it says "cannot continue. Displacement images must be 8 bits/pixel."

    Has anyone an idea, how i can fix this? 🙂

  7. This tutorial is AMAZING, I now know what to give my boyfriend for a truly memorable birthday present as graphic designer. So excited

  8. LOL – I've been watching your videos for several years but this is the first time I've seen your face. I always imagined you with a beard!!! PS Love your video tutorials x

  9. sir is not working i have tried on explorer also on fire fox but ,failed..kindly tell other way to insert text..i am a beginner me out.

  10. pardon sir but the wordle didn't work for me even in explorer it blocks ny java have ypu any site that's the same with wordle please list me some of them thank you

  11. This is a great tutorial, however I keep running into one problem. When attempting to make a displacement layer(10:30), after clicking ok in Distort>Displace, the window pops up, but I have no displacement file to open. Has anyone else run into this problem? I'm not sure what to do.

  12. How can i download and create text on ? I find website in Internet Explorer, there is no "create your own".

  13. It is amazing, very helpful! Anyway, i have a problem. When i finish up the smart object and putting it on the face, mine becomes too dark and none of the face is recognizable. No eyes, no mouth, just the shape of the head. What did i do wrong?
