Thank you for all of the detailed "how to" steps. :thumbup:

However, three things Part 2 taught me:
1. An awesome amount of effort and talent needed
2. One also needs to be highly proficient in Photoshop.
3. I'm not likely to be creating any sophisticated materials any time soon :lol:

Thank you for these tutorials! I finally had a chance to sit down and watch all 5, including anisotropy, et al, and they clarified a number of fine point issues for me. Well done, Patrick! Now, I am off to play in the material lab some more.
