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).

2. Animation/”Other”

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. :)
I found it in the "Free Tutorial" section. No worries. :) And thanks, Mark.

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 ;)
