    I always love seeing tutorials like this where you create an object from scratch! The final outcome looks very nice, and the PSDFan icon was a nice touch =)

      Thanks Eric, it’s been a while since we posted some quality drawing tutorials, so it’s been great releasing some high quality ‘drawing from scratch’ workflows.
