Can anyone post a tutorial about making your own camouflage patterns? I know the camouflage plugin for photoshop but it's only limited to one pattern type, you can't make a lizard or tiger stripe or others things different out of the usual patterns.

thanks very much in advance :)

For basic camo, there are lots of different tutorials around involving the "difference clouds" filter on 3 layers and then colorizing each layer, but for specific patterns as you describe, you need to create them by hand using either the lasso or the pen tool. Also, if you want the pattern to be seamless, it's better to start with a square 128x128, 256x256, etc. (powers of 2). Look HERE for examples that you can trace over. Keep each color on its own layer.
