While this is not a walkthrough, I still hope you'll find it useful. I thought I should rather put some condensed tips and tricks together than make you sit through me fiddling endlessly. This is also the reason why this is not a video: I fiddle and I try and I test and I remove and... it's endless and quite boring, trust me.
Please do comment on this if you have anything to say at all - these tutorials are not done in a matter of minutes, we're talking days here, so all that keeps me from saying "why bother" is feedback, really.
If you use these techniques and would like to show me, please leave a comment or send me a note and I will be overjoyed to take a peek
