Skeuomorphism Design

pretty much i was wondering if anyone knew of any tutorials that show a step by step process of skeuomorphism design. I've read plenty of articles that tell what it is and how to do it. but never actually a tutorial to make something or a video. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Even skeuomorphism ui just anything that shows how to make it :p

There's no special secret to using skeuomorphs in your Graphic Design, it just requires some artistic flair and a good bit of skill in Photoshop/Illustrator. So classes on Photoshop/Illustrator & practicing drawing from reference photos should help you get better at it.

What exactly is skeuomorphism?
