In case of LJ going fluffy, this challenge can also be found on Dreamwidth at http://severalplums.dreamwidth.org/64449.html

Voting will close on Friday morning.

The next challenge will be up next Saturday morning. Meanwhile, a reminder that I'm hoping some of you will post images—animé and screencaps particularly welcome—that could be used in future challenges Post here if you have anything that might be suitable.

Texture tutorial Challenge #120

I was invited to do a tutorial for either or both of the texture sets I made for Challenge 120 and since I couldn't decide which texture set to make a tutorial for so I made one for both. In order not to spam this community, I'm only posting the tutorial for the first texture I made to this community. The other one can be found here at love_sacrificed.
