I've been scrambling DA for weeks, looking for a crystal tutorial that can work on my miniscule mind

This is my favorite comment I've ever gotten so far.
Did the tutorial help? I'm going to make another one soon enough, probably next month.

Nice clear step by step. I've never tried a crystal but they look fun to test out.

Thank you for this ^w^

Really nice lighting and shading you've got there ;D
Crystals and Ice Shards are always really hard to do because of all the angles and the light reflections but you got the crystalline effect really well.

I'll use this one day XD
