    Guys, theres a lot of tips using brushes and other “designer” stuff now a days

    I love this show so much, never ever had missed any episode. Kinda missing scoot, Dave and Matt. Hope they will come back soon. :)
    Quick question. What kind of Configuration your laptops are, this is specially to Corey, because his PS 3D works really Flawless. Please let me know, because I have extended version of PS and 3D option do not work.
