The only advise I can give you on making instructions would be make them like the regular ones you get witha set. Make sure that they are simple and understandable and that the minigifs and little things are built first. If you follow these steps it should come out looking like regular Lego Instructions. Good luck with making them 8)

Good thoughts, how about the graphics though? I guess I am not very good with photoshop.
