D E F O C U S






This tut was written on October 20, 2011.
It is written using PSPX; I'm sure the same effects are available in other versions.

SUPPLIES
A tube.
I'm using the work of Elias Chatzoudis.
This tube was purchased from MPT; this artist is currently represented by PTE.

The following filters:
MuRa's Meister - Copies
VanDerLee - Unplugged X - Defocus
FM Tile Tools - Blend Emboss
Texturizer - Sandstone
Greg's Factory Output, Vol. II - Pool Shadow

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


Let's begin!


Pick a color for your background.

Open a new image, 800 wide x 800 high.

Floodfill with your color.

Add a new layer.

Selection Tool - Custom Selection using the following setting:



Floodfill the selection with white.

Selections - Select None.


MuRa's Meister - Copies using the following setting:



Duplicate this layer; hide the top layer.


Working on the middle layer, VanDerLee - Unplugged X - Defocus using the following setting:



Change the layer setting of this layer to Overlay.

Unhide the top layer.

Change the layer setting of this layer to Soft Light; change the opacity to 70.

Layers - Merge - Merge Visible.


FM Tile Tools - Blend Emboss using the default setting.

Effects - Edge Effects - Enhance.


Add a new layer.

Repeat the selection you used earlier; fill the selection with black.

Selections - Select None.

Repeat the MuRa's you used earlier.

Effects - Geometric Effects - Skew using Vertical, Repeat, Angle = 45.

Effects - Distortion Effects - Wave using the following setting:



Repeat the Defocus effect you used earlier.

Change the layer setting of this layer to Soft Light; change the opacity to 65.

Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow using 1, 1, 100, 1, Black.


Image - Rotate Right.

Selection Tool - Custom Selection using the following setting:



Image - Crop to Selection.


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.


For the avatar:

Duplicate your tag (Shift + D.)

Remove the layer with the tube.

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.


Here is another example, using the work of Elias Chatzoudis:
