I try to write my tutorials as plain and clear as possible, but if I get you confused (and, if I do, I am sorry) you can always refer back to the image we are making for reference. Also, this is just a guideline (I write where I place the elements ) but feel free to move them around, or add different elements. Have fun and experiment, it is the best way to learn new things.
This tutorial was written by me on 06-12-2018 and is purely of my own making. Please refer to my TOU on the right sidebar.
If there is any resemblance to any other tut it is purely coincidental. Please do not claim as your own.
