  2. [...] Create an Beautiful Box Icon in Photoshop [...]

  3. This tutorial would have been better as a video tut. It’s not for the novices. You don’t provide enough information for a novice to do the tutuorial. I am not good enough with perspective to re ctreate what you are asking.

  4. This is what I’m looking for.

    Thanks
