I love Dad

You will find the original tutorial here :

This tutorial is a personal creation.
Any resemblance with another one would be only pure coincidence.
It is stricly forbidden to modify tubes, to change their name or take off the matermarks,
To present them on your sites or blog,
To share them in groups,
to make a bank of images, or to use them on lucrative purposes.

Thank you to respect Animabelle’s work and the tubers work.
Don’t hesitate to warn her (or me) if you have any trouble with this tutorial.

Animabelle uses her own tubes, not provided with the material to prevent the theft of her work
2 decoration tubes - 1 brush tip
1 alpha layer - 1 color palette - 1 preset

Animabelle’s important note
Tubers have been warned that disrespectful and dishonest bloggers come steeling our tubes
they grab them into the folders of material we use to provide for our tutorials.
These people rename and convert the tubes to png type,
and then they offer them for download in their blogs, pretending they have done the work.

To protect my work, I am therefore forced to no longer provide my tubes with the material.
Honest people will understand my way of doing, I hope.
I thank them for their understanding.
Very important Tip:
never download your tubes on these blogs, because most of the time all of these tubes are stolen tubes.
Always make sure that the tubes you use have been signed by their authors.
Thank you.
