A redo of a very early piece of mine; [link]
So many people enjoyed that piece and many came to me asking for a tutorial. At the time I was pleased with the response but aside from not having the time to create a tutorial, I began to feel it was never really such a great piece that deserved a tutorial. So when PSD Mag asked me to do a tutorial for a piece similar to 'comeAlive', I thought why not simply redo the piece into something better and create a tutorial for that?
So that's what did and I am very happy with it. What I wanted the effects in my old piece to represent were fire and ice. In this version, I worked on enhancing those effects/representations. I feel it turned out much better than the original.
You can find the tutorial in the latest issue (2010/11) of PSD Mag
