I think this tutorial is pretty unique and I’m very excited about the possibilities this technique brings to the table.
Adding a pseudo light source to a flat texture, till very recently was considered a Photoshop/Fireworks-only technique. Since it involves modifying the look of a bitmap image, I had not attempted to try it in Flash. When working out possibilities for an interface recently, I decided to give it a try and was very happy with the results.
