Dreamcatcher-Animated Tutorial By Sher

This tutorial was written on June 20, 2009. Any similarities is purely coincidental. You need to have a working knowledge of Paint shop pro and Animation shop to do this tutorial. I used Paint Shop Pro X2 but any version is ok.
I'm using the beautiful work Of Elias Chatzoudis. You must have a License to use his work. You can can purchase his tubes Here
The kit Im using is called Dream Catcher , Its on sale right now, You can purchase it Here
The Native American art I got in a random search , If these images belong to you, I will remove them if you want me too.
The font I used is Courier New but any font will do!
