PTU - Firecracker Forum Set







This tutorial was written by me on June 14, 2012, using my own ideas. Any resemblance to others is coincidental and accidental. This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of psp and is written in PSPX.

Please leave some love when downloading supplies. The artists/creators work hard to make/share their work with us, so let's be appreciative. Please use all correct copyright information and follow all TOU’s. Let’s give credit where credit is due. ??

As always, tutorials are only a guideline. If you don't have the exact supplies, use ones you have or ones you choose.
