  1. Earth Shattering tutorial, as usual.

    Just a small question: how did you delete that ruler so quickly?
    Because I use to just drag them to the side of the image, but is there a quick erase shortcut?


  2. Nice tutorial, Corey. As always, you did a remarkable job in reverse engineering this movie logo. The one aspect that you did not address was the light source. On the movie logo, the light at the bottom of the “one” was the source for the other numbers. So the bevelled edges of the left two and zero were illuminated on the right side, while the left edges of the right hand two were illuminated. Not a biggy, but it added to the realism of the burst of light at the bottom of the “one.”

  3. Another great work two thumbs up for you my friend.
    I’ve been watching your tutorials for some time now and i noticed that you are always using your metal textured photo well I’m just wondering if you could send it to me..
    I tried searching for photo that came close to it but did not find one that is as good as that one and i dont want to buy it from some website.

  4. Thanks for the tutorial. I am following fine up until you cut the end off of the two after loading it as a selection. What keyboard button are you pressing to get rid of it. I pressed delete but it gets rid of the zero as well. I’m lost on that part. Help please! I want to finish the tutorial.

  5. haha! silly mac user Corey! Agency FB is for PC! :D good tutorial though, although i dont really like the outcome, i think you showed some cool effects in this though.

  10. You have some honest ideas here. I done a research on the issue and discovered most peoples will agree with your blog. After that early period, the Beatles evolved considerably over the years.

  13. Undeniably believe that which you said.
    Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
