You have less than 24 hours to get this free PSD...
One of the things I love about life is learning new things every single day.
Though this has been going on since 2011 I just learned about "Ten Collection" today.
What is Ten Collection? Well, it's 10 Artists - 10 Countries - 10 PSDs done in 10 Months.
So each month they feature 1 image from a single artist, along with an interview with that artist.
But they don't just show you the image, during 1 day that month they give you 24 hours to download the complete PSD that shows exactly what went into making the image.
I love "deconstructing" images and this is deconstruction at its very best.
Not only do you get the PSD, you are also free to use much of it, here are the use rights from their site (in part): "You can use the different layers for professional purposes, except the ones in red, which represent images from the Fotolia image bank."
Above is the image of this months featured artist, Korean artist Soongyu Gwon.
I've downloaded the PSD and have been playing with it, there are well over 100 layers that make up the image, and here are a couple screen captures (click on them to view larger):
That is just some of the "crow" layers, there are many more.
The problem is there is only about 22 hours left for you get get this months free PSD, so run don't walk over to the Ten Collection right now to get this months PSD, then start your countdown for next months artist.
Here is the "Ten Collection" schedule for the rest of this year:

* Wednesday, April 10th - Marumiyan (Japan)
