CU Licenses

Thursday, November 25, 2010
This tutorial is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tuts is purely coincidental. This tutorial is for personal use only, using it for monetary gain is against our TOU's. Supplies Needed: ~Gimp (any version will do). ~Tubes of choice. I used the super hot artwork of Ismael Rac. You must have a license to use his art which you can get HERE. ~Punk Rock Barbie PTU scrapkit which you can get from Addictive Pleasures HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 263 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Pasta Palazzo. Let's get started!!!!! 1. Open a new layer ( I prefer a large canvas, so I make mine 1050x656). Make your canvas transparent (Layer > Transparency > Color to alpha). 2. Open Frame, tilt the frame slightly using the Rotate Tool in your tool box. Duplicate the frame so that you have 2 of them, flip one of them so that they are a mirror image of each other, you can use the Flip Tool in your tool box for this. Move the frames in to desired position, add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 6 center it behind the frames, remove excess paper using the rectangular cutting tool in your tool box. 4. Open FilmStrip, add drop shadow. 5. Open Paper 5 center it behind the filmstrip, remove excess paper using the rectangular cutting tool in your tool box. 6. Open tubes, I used both a full body and close ups. Open the close ups behind the filmstrip, I made the close ups back & white (Colors > Desaturate > Luminosity). I also lowered the opacity of the close ups to 65 (at the top of the layer box you will see a bar you can slide to change the opacity of the selected layer). Add drop shadow to all of the tubes. 7. Open and place the following elements: Discoball Netting Flames x2 Guitar Skull Sparkle X4 ~Some of the elements may need to be sized down. Using your scale tool in your tool box adjust the pixel size until element is the correct size~ ~Add drop shadow to all elements~ 8. Open Paper 11. 9. Open mask. 10. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tut on using masks) 11. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer). 12. Autocrop image (Image > Autocrop Image). 13. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 14. Add copyright info and name. 15. Save as .png You are finished :)
