Young Fisherman

For Italian and Danish translations, click on the flags.

 

For Materials, click on the Zip file.

Unzip the materials into a working folder. Place Texture in PSP/Textures. Open the materials in PSP, copy and close originals. You will need Flaming Pear/Flood plugin to do this tutorial. I have used PSPX3 to create this tutorial but you may use an earlier version. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Thanks go to Colorel, Corinne Vicaire and Arasimages for the tubes used. Please visit the tuber sites listed on my Links page. You will also find many lovely tubes in my Tubes section.
