CU Licenses

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). ~Dafne PTU scrapkit which you can get from Addictive Pleasures HERE. ~Tubes of choice. I used the super HOT art of Ismael Rac, you must have a license to use his art which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used Template 55 which you can get at Sapphire's Splendor HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Velvenda Heavy. 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 template in PSD format, move layers of template around until they are the way you like them. ~Add paper from scrapkit to individual layers of the template (Right click on template in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select paper layer in layer box > Delete). These are the papers I used: Paper 1 Paper 8 Paper 9 ~I added noise to some of the template layers to make them look glittery (Filters > Noise > RGB Noise). ~I colorized some of the template layers to better match the scrapkit (Colors > Colorize > play with the setting until you get the desired color). ~Add drop shadow to template layers (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open tubes, I used both a full body tube and close ups. Add drop shadow to full body tube. 4. Place close up tubes over "Silver Gradient Bars" layer of the template, which you have already covered with paper 9. Lower the opacity of the close up tubes (at the top of the layer box slide the opacity bar to desired opacity, I used 50). Add tubes to template layer (Right click on template in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select close up tube layers in layer box > Delete). 5. Open and place the following elements: Feathers Fire Wire 2 Cross Star Skull Skull 3 Razorblade Rose Heart Lips Lightning 2 Bird Glass* *Glass element will be placed directly on top of close up tubes. Add Glass element to template layer > Right click on template in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select Glass layer in layer box > Delete* ~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~ 6. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers). 7. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image). 8. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 9. Add copyright info and name 10. Save as .png ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
