    The space rocket avatar and the super cure monster are the best I think, these tutorials can help to teach us many secrets of photoshop.

    As I was looking at the images I can’t stop myself from saying “WOW”. These are very impressive works all comes from the great combination of illustrator and photoshop and the brilliant creativity of the person behind these.
