he says this:
Quote:
Then after getting all the settings right complete the outline drawing by looking at the reference.
as if it's just a run-of-the-mill thing for him. so, that's as far i went in the tutorial. you need to be able to DRAW.

The 404s are recent, the links did work last night, but I'm getting them now as well.

Two years later, and still "404".
No sense in leaving this thread to clutter our forum, mod!

Its not a very good tutorial. There is very little instruction other than - just draw it. Basically all this 'tutorial' does is paint a picture by hand in photoshop, using a photograph as reference.
But why bother with all that work only to come out with what you started with. The end product is the same as what you started with - so I dont see much practical application for this.

for anyone who's interested, this is the reference image

Can anyone honestly say this tutorial taught them from?

I don't think that's the reference image, that's this guy's finished image (he works for one of the LOTR design companies).

And if nothing other than "this is possible" is learned, that's a good thing.
