Awesome tuts Stormy, only ones ive watched that explain a great deal of everything involved.
In texture #2 capture, you said u'll try and remember to throw some PS brushes into the zip, any chance we can still get them?
Hope you do more tuts, the're much appreciated.

Hey stormy, ive been following your tutorials up to where one starts the actual skinning in photoshop. I was wondering if you know how to make reflective skins (sort of like a chrome) and if so could you give me a brief description on how normal skins and reflective skins differ.. maybe even a link to another tutorial on the subject would REALLY be helpful!! thx man, youve done a great job with the tutorials.

Hey! I've had these tutorials for a while and never had the time to watch them, now I have, they are great :) (and it helps that the voice isn't a California whine ;)) hehe, I liked the "Ooh that's a bit naughty" selection shape. Keep up the great work, you've really made my Photoshop work so much better, especially all the useful shortcuts and bits!

Oh god I could kiss you right now.
I just started working on a grenade launcher for the AVPGOLD2 mod.
Your videos will increase the quality of my work by a very large degree, which hopefully should help you all getting rid of those evil aliens ;)
