lets see you try and make a tutorial that has never been made before it is hard. And no they are not from good tutorial (i rarely ever go there nowadays) everybody has a different way of doing something for example i don't like using layer styles i want to teach people other methods for doing things so they will have a variety. and i never saw any tut that was like this and if you have then is it such a coincidince that 2 people have the same tutorial out of the millions of photoshop users. no it isn't.


edit: i just went onto good tutorials to look up orbs they have 123 of them so of course min is going to be like one of theirs.

Your method on how to make orbs have been done and used that way since...forever. All your tuts have basically been found already....

i just looked up metal on good tutorials and it didn't come up with a single result that looked anything like my tutorial i also looked at all the effect tuts and i couldn't find anything that looked like my desktop one. why don't you make a tutorial that has never been done before it is almost impossible. but yet i still made two that haven't been done before.
