I thought i would try with something that wasn't a person, but a logo. Didn't work so well.Yay mac
Here's my result:
The tut didn't really work with something not person, but i played a little around and i like the result...
I think the tut coud work well with icons but not that one. The mac system update icon is a very whiny, er, shiny globe. A doesn't smudge well in any shape but a circle. Also, the shinyness is taken away by a grunge feeling. Which doesn't look good on the logo.
(the whiny joke was a typo at first but I decided to keep it because the globe is always jumping up and down when there is an update.
