E F F E C T S, T O O

This tut was written on January 6, 2012.
It is written using PSPX; I'm sure the same effects are available in other versions.

A tube.
I'm using the work of PinUpToons.
This tube was purchased while the artist was at CILM.
This artist is currently represented by CDO.

The following filters:
MuRa's Meister - Copies

Font of choice (I'm using "SkinDeepBB")

Let's begin!

Pick a darker color from your tube for your background, and a lighter color for your foreground.

Open a new image, 25 wide x 250 high.

Floodfill with your dark color.

Effects - Texture Effects - Blinds using 15, 100, both boxes checked.
Change the color to your lighter color.

Effects - Texture Effects - Weave using 1, 3, 1, fill gaps box checked.
Change both color boxes to your darker color.

Image - Canvas Size to 600x250, centered.

MuRa's Meister - Copies using the Line preset; changing the number to 15.

Add a new layer.

Floodfill with your darker color.

Repeat both the Blinds and the Weave effects.

Image - Flip.

Duplicate this layer.

On the top layer, Effects - Edge Effects - Enhance.

Highlight the bottom layer.

Layers - Arrange - Bring to Top.

Add a small drop shadow to the top layer.
I used -2, -2, 65, 8, black.

Add your tube, and a blurry drop shadow (I used Eye Candy 5: Impact - Perspective Shadow using the Blurry preset.)

Add a 2px Selection border with the same color you used earlier.

Add your name and all necessary copyright information.

To animate:

Hide the layer with the Enhance effect.

Edit - Copy Merged.

In AS, right click on your workspace.
Paste As New Animation.

Change the frame properties of this layer from 10 to 100.

Back in PSP, unhide the layer with the Enhance effect.

Edit- Copy Merged.

In AS, Edit - Paste - After Current Frame.
Do not change the frame properties of this layer.

For the avatar:

Duplicate your tag (Shift + D.)

Remove all unnecessary layers (leaving the bottom three).

Crop to 150x150.

Add a new layer.

Add a 2px Selection border, using your dark color.

Add your name  (or initial) and all necessary copyright information.

You may animate the avatar, if you wish.

Here is another example, using the work of Anna Linawag.
This artist is currently represented by PTE.
