For those of you asking about the Tips For Texturing With Crackle tutorial: I have pulled the tutorial from dA and my website for edits. Rewriting/reformatting the tutorial is on my list of "things to do." At this time I'm unsure as to whether or not I'll be uploading it to dA again or if it will only appear on my site. I will, however, post a link to it from www.facebook.com/AbandonReason (my Facebook page) when it's done.
My apologies to those of you who have arrived here looking for the tutorial via links from groups and others' galleries. And my thanks to those of you who graciously linked back.
