  1. Nice footage sir!
    Though I would liek to see (or hear) more explanaition about what you are doing exactly, and why.

    I think that a good tutorial tells and shows what is happening, so the interested fellow who is following it will not just try to copy your mouse movements, but will also know why he is making these mouse movements.

    But for a first try, I think you have amde quite the effort!

  2. Look in your local directory for shoe manufacturers in your locality; set a visit with the manager and see whether they will be willing to take you on as a designer. bring samples of your sketches and designs. You can also go to your local government; they usually have a list of manufacturers in their business permit office. You can also visit your favorite stores and shoe outlets to find out where they source their shoes. get the contact numbers and communicate with these manufacturers by phone, mail or email. Keep it up.
