Insomnia PTU Tutorial

This tutorial was written by me. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is pure coincidence. Please DO NOT claim this tutorial as your own. It was written in PSP 9 but should be compatible with any version of PSP.



I am using the artwork of Sheena Pike.  You need a license to use this tube. You can buy this tube at CDO

I am using the PTU Kit IB Sheena Pike 4-1  by Gimptastic Scraps . This kit is exclusive to CDO
