Hey guys and gals.
I am looking to play around with some flame work. But I have always struggled for some reason with this. I am great at manipulating flame photos but I want to actually create something.

So any of you know of any good tutorials out there. Some real hidden jewels. I know google is your friend but I am looking for those lesser know ones.

I don't have a graphics tablet so count that out.

Also I would love to work with both illustrator and photoshop. Below is an example of the type I am looking for.
