For anyone who hasn't tried this yet, do so. It's a really detailed and elaborate tutorial that I made for this blend: (click for large version).
I'm using Photoshop CS 3 however, this doesn't have any selective coloring or anything wacko so I guess it is translatable.
Please credit this tutorial if you use it in your blends and showcase it/enter it in challenges. Thank you.
