Here's my first attempt at showing the behind the scenes. Let me know if I gloss over something, although the point of these tutorials is not to show every little step but instead to give an idea of how I do things.
I'm showing how to make this template. Feel free to download it first so you can see what I'm working towards. Also, I use Brooke's texture.
Finally, please leave links here to any assets/templates you would like to see behind the scenes.
