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). ~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Tim Lowery, you must have a license to use this art which you can get @ PSP Tubes Emporium HERE. ~Horror Whorez Sampler FTU scrapkit by Gothic Inspirations which you can get HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 363 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Trees of Happiness. 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 1, I tilted the frame slightly using the Rotate Tool. Add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 5 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. Open tubes, I used both full body and 2 close-up tubes. ~Open the close-up tube, duplicate the tube layer. Flip one of the tubes using the Flip tool in your tool box. Place both layers under the frame but above the paper. Merge the 2 tube layers together (right click top tube layer > Merge Down). Change the mode to Dodge (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Dodge from the drop down menu). Remove excess tube layer using cutting tool or eraser from your tool box. ~Add drop shadow to full body tube. 5. Open and place the following elements: Splatter Pool of Blood Knife Skull Spirits Spider Chains Candle Bottle Axe ~Some elements may need to be sized down. Using the Scale Tool in your tool box adjust pixels to desired size~ ~Add drop shadow to all elements (except Splatter & Pool of Blood)~ 6. Open Paper 12. 7. Open mask. 8. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tut on using masks). 9. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer). 10. Crop image (Image > Autocrop Image). 11. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 12. Add copyright info and name. 13. Save as .png You are finished :)
