    Cool tutorial! First thing came to mind when I saw the output was adding some Photo Filter with something like warm color to get the vintage feel, then with some other stuff. That’s what I love about tutorials, there is always something new to learn.

    Thanks!

      Yeah I can see this piece working with a photo filter, although I do love the current super sleek outcome too! I agree with you about the versatility of tutorials though, there’s always something new to learn, even if some classic/older methods are touched upon, they can often be applied in new and interesting ways.
