  1. That’s good to see this tutorial in your premium list. Thanks for publishing it Tom.

  2. Wow that is insane, I have seen graphics like this before but I did not know this could be done in Photoshop. Very impressed!

  3. Firebubble,

    I too severally amused by this effect and tried to create it by many ways but finally completed it with combination of photoshop and xara. Hope you’ll find it useful.

  4. combine Photoshop with a 3D graphic software like 3ds max and you can get some really spectacular results
