i used to draw by hand, Charcoaled mainly, but once i found PS i kinda stopped canvasing. I lke PS because you can go back on your mistakes, which is always a nice thing....that and i dont have to clear cover anything in PS because it never fades or smudges :P
and Nightlord....no problems, that is why i put (Optional) next to the steps that re-colored the signature, you do not need to do them.
And for anyone who found it better as they scrolled up, even better because then you only have to go through 1/2 the tut to get the result you wanted.
The tutorial itself is not to provide people with that result, it is meant to teach some newcomers to PS about little things they can do to add depth, lighting and colors to a signature.
I decided to go back and read the post because of some of the quotes that were popping up....
