this is a fast and "easy to make" tutorial

This tutorial is a personal creation.
Any resemblance with another one would be only pure coincidence.
Thank you to respect Animabelle’s work and the tubers work.
Don’t hesitate to warn her if you have any trouble with this tutorial.


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 provide with 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 take your tubes on these blogs, because most of the time all of these tubes are stolen tubes.
Always make sure that the tubes you take have been signed by their authors !
Thank you.
