sorry i've been busy lately.  Made a crystal tutorial in my stream today to help out with all those nerds who like making shiny things.  This is also the basic method I use on Syron's crystals as seen here:
 Syron the Fox (2014) by DanSyron

All the painting was done on 1 layer in photoshop cs3.  All effects are in Photoshop.  Have some fun making things!

Tutorial and art by me!

I'll try this with Rico eventually, as I originally design Rico to control water & ice.
