This tutorial has nothing to do with cutting or 'rendering' out objects or characters, or any of that. I move through it fairly quick, but if you get behind, always remember you can pause and restart anytime.
Also, as always, if you have any questions, please ask them here.
I should also mention that once you've created the shape in this tutorial, you can add it to your Photoshop's Custom Shapes library by defining it as a custom shape. There are tutorials on how to do this out there, but if needed, I can add this to a later tutorial.
Anyway, enjoy! And if anything spurs new questions or directions of thought for you in these videos, or if they seem to be creeping away from beginner level into more advanced stuff, please hold me accountable and let me know.
