    I enjoyed my subscription pro tutorial a lot. I found Phlearn some time ago, when I was trying to get rid of some people standing on the windows of a building that I shot. And there was a free tutorial similar to what I was looking for and you just did it with the brush tool and added some texture on top of it to look real. Awesome and very easy. I drew some details on the beetle with a brush that I created from the beetle’s texture and that is from the face hair tutorial. I use a lot of this awesome Teaching. Here is my result. I think I overdid it but I just couldn’t resist some of the tricks 🙂

    My first (but not my last) Pro Tutorial. Just as easy and fun to follow along with as the normal free videos and I was able to get a great result from my first ever Pro-Photoshop! Would definitely recommend this tutorial to anybody else and will definitely be purchasing myself another tutorial soon. As well as learning many different techniques through this video, it’s also got me comfortable using lots more keyboard shortcuts to get the job done quicker. Thanks Phlearn!

    I was worried about being spammed when I signed up. Iv been watching the free youtube channel for about a year now and have been very impressed. I spent 2.5 hours with this tutorial and cant believe how much I learn. The pen tool is still really difficult for me but with lots of practice I’m sure I will get it now. My final product was amazing and cant wait to use what I’ve learned in my own images. I’ve just bought my first program with phlearn and if its as good as this one I will be back for more

    I love this site – I have been using photoshop for over a decade, and get asked for tips and how to use it by people I know all the time – most of which I have figured out myself… I have learnt more in the last week from Phlearn than in the last 10 years! And Aaron is so happy to see you coming back for more – even when you get him to repeat himself – like 100 times lol.

    Thank you so much for sharing that knowledge for signing up 🙂
    My personal highlight was the introducing of the Pen-tool: “Congratulations, we have created a blob!” 😀
    I love your way to explain Photoshop in that easy and funny way!

    A really interesting tutorial. I would never do this myself, but there are many techniques explained that are really useful. Using the pen tool is really well explained. Also making the specular highlights was a real eyeopener. Thanks very much for this free tutorial.
