    My present from me to you guys, like I promised! It's not even complete, but I thought I'd go ahead and get this much out here. I'm sorry with the lack of advanced tutorials in both the GIMP and Photoshop sections, they're very difficult to find. I will definitely be cleaning this up very soon, I'm sorry for the clutter. Anyhoo, I spent most of my non-academic hours on this, so please enjoy it.

    I want to point out that almost (90%+) any Photoshop tutorial can be used for GIMP (and vice versa). I have included both a Photoshop and GIMP sections for the sake of convenience, however.

    ** Double asterisks mean that the links enclosed within these boundaries go
    together.

    Please PM me for the following reasons:
    • Invalid link.
    • Tutorial, tutorials, tutorials. If you have a suggestion, show it to me through PM, and I'll decide whether it's worthy of being in the list.
    • Misleading tutorial.
    • Grammar fixation (typos, spelling mistakes, etc.)
    • Difficulty of tutorial suggestion (perhaps I put a beginner's tut in the intermediate section, shoot me a PM and we can discuss it).

    Synopsis of this list:

    1. Various resources

    Did you pay Hadouken the PR to use that C4D tut? (the first one)
    He's still selling it on PR, you know. :O



    OTHERWISE, that's a hell of a list, man. Nice job. :)

    Nice. This is awesome.

    Also, you can add in my GIMP tut too if you'd like. I posted a thread for it awhile ago, but I can't post the link for it since I'm on my PS3 right now

    Nice work.

    But I must say, Closes site, there is a hilarious misspelling.

    I knew this "gift" would be just as good as you made it out to be Tyler. This is a dream come true for any member of the GFX section. I thank you for your time and your effort. :)

    Also, I was wondering if I could have permission to link this thread on another forum I belong to? If I could, that would be awesome, because this thread is EXTREMELY helpful! =D

    So get back to me on this, thanks ;)

    Thanks for contributing, Sneaux. And of course you can link this to another forum, no problem. ^.^ Of course, you have to pay that $10 fee per month, but...haha, kidding. This is for helping anyone and everyone, not just people on Wiichat. :) I'm glad you think it's helpful.

    Welcome. :)

    On another note, don't think I'm being bias against the GIMP section, I just haven't gotten around to cleaning it up like I did the Photoshop section. :lol: I'll get it on it soon.
