Psp tutorial: Summer Holiday


This tutorial is entirely my own idea. It is unknown to me who created the male and the female tube. If it is yours, please leave a message in the comment section, so that I can give the credits back to you.

The masks are created by Ildiko. Her website can be found here.



Some other tubes are created by me, so please leave the layers intact. The tubes can
always be used for personal stuff, you only have to ask permission first if you would like to use them in a tutorial.


This tutorial will be written in English.
