PTU - "Daydream"




This tutorial was written by me on April 21, 2016 using my own ideas. Any resemblance to others is coincidental and accidental. This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of psp and is written in PSPX.

Please leave some love when downloading supplies. The artists/creators work hard to make/share their work with us, so let's be appreciative. Please use all correct copyright information. Let’s give credit where credit is due. ??

As always, tutorials are only a guideline. If you don't have the exact supplies, use ones you have or ones you choose.
