I did this tutorial and all was going well until I added some color to the spiny urchin. Before I knew it,it was turned into the table and yellowman's other tutorial took over,lol. I'll try again when the glass orb one isn't so fresh on my mind,lol. At least the table was made out of the first design he has up there and the other tutorial was his too,lol.     ;)
