When I create Textures or Objects that are shown on this site or featured in the tutorials, I try to create them using only what is provided to me in Photoshop. That is, I only use the patterns, filters, layer styles or what ever is available to me in Photoshop. I will not use any other third party plug-ins or other textures from the internet. I tend to make stuff from scratch like the picture below.
So, I hope you like the tutorials on this site and I hope you learn something new.
