CU Licenses

Tuesday, January 24, 2012
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.
Tube of choice. I am using the art of Lix. You must have a license to use these tubes. You can purchase this tube starting today at PSP Tubes Emporium HERE!
Texture 7 by Bokeh HERE
Star brushes HERE
Fonts- Appleberry & Sketchy
File>New 600x250 pixels.
Change your foreground color to 319ccc. Change background color to c03769. Select the gradient tool. Below are the settings I have my gradient on:
Layer>New Layer. While pressing ctrl on your keyboard, click the top middle of your tag, and drag your mouse to the bottom middle. Add new layer. We are adding another gradient to this layer. Change your settings to what I have below: Click in the middle of your canvas and drag out to the left (while pressing ctrl on your keyboard). Change the mode of this layer to hard light. Open texture. Move between the 2 graidient layers ( 2nd layer). Layer>Transpareny>Add Alpha Channel. Layer>Scale Layer 80%. Change the mode to dodge. Open tube. Move below the texture layer. Layer>Duplicate Layer 2 times (for a total of 3 tube layers). Arrange on your canvas as shown below:
I changed the mode of the left tube to screen, middle tube to overlay, right tube to grain merge. You can chage the modes to whatever you think looks best.
Open tube again. Make the top layer. Scale 75%. Place to the far left of tag. Filters>Light & Shadow>Drop Shadow 2, 2, 2, black, 50. Duplicate. Filters>Blur>Gaussian Blur on default. Change the mode to dodge and lower the opacity to 30.
Make the bottom gradient layer active. Select the rectangle select tool. Make a selection at the bottom of your tag. I highlighted below where I made my selection:
Filters>Distort>Blinds. Horizontal, Displacement 30, Number Of Segments 25. Select>None.
Make the layer under the main tube active. Make a thin rectangle selection at the bottom. Change foreground to e8d95a. Add new layer. Select the bucket fill tool and fill selection. Add new layer. Change foreground back to the blue used earlier. Fill selection. Select>Shrink by 2. Press delete on your keyboard. Select none. Filters>Noise>RGB Noise. Change all the sliders (except alpha) to 0.50. Repeat drop shadow. Your tag should now look like mine below:
Selete the appleberry font. Change foreground to pink from before. Set the size to 23. Type 'roller girl' 2 times. Place text on yellow rectangle. Add noise of 0.30 (on all sliders except alpha). Add drop shadow of 1, 1, 0, black, 35.
Add new layer. Move below the 2nd gradient layer. Select the paint brush tool. Select the brush you want to use and click the canvas. I used brush 11 & 12.
Make the top layer active. Add new layer. I added a gradient using the pink and blue colors we used earlier. Click the left top corner and drag mouse to the bottom right corner to add gradient. Layer>Transpareny>Apha To Selection. Shrink by 4. Delete. Add new layer below this layer. Using the bucket fill tool, fill selection. Shrink by 1 and delete. Add new layer below yellow layer. Fill with black. Shrink by 3. Delete. Select none. Add a gaussian blur on default. Change opacity of this layer to 60. Repeat noise. I also added noise to the gradient layer.
Add name using the sketchy font. Add you copy right and you're finished!
