S U N   P R I N C E

This tut was written on July 14, 2010 by me, Beverly
It is written using PSPX; I'm sure the same effects are available in other versions.
Any similarity to other tuts are not intentional.

A tube and a close-up or an image.
I'm using the work of Rebecca Sinz.
You need to purchase a license to use this work from Dreamscape Imaging.

The following filters:

MuRa's Meister - Copies - Wall Paper Rotate
Italian Editors Effect - Effetto Fantasma
Alien Skin Impact - Brushed Metal

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

Let's begin!

Open a new image, 600x250.

Paste the close-up copy of the tube or a copy of the image  to your blank image,
Mura Meister Wallpaper Rotate at default settings,
or whatever setting needed to make sure the whole image is covered.  

Motion Blur at the following settings.  Do the Blur twice.

Effects, Edge effects, enhance more
Effects, Edge effects, erode
Effects, Edge effects, enhance

Duplicate layer, Mirror, Flip then set the blend mode to Soft Light - or
to a setting that appeals to you.

Use a preset shape that corresponds to your tube or image.
I used the pick tool

to stretch out the shape then Convert to Raster Layer.

I used the Distortion Effects, Wave at these setting to match the tube I used.  
On my second example, I used No Distortion Effects at all.

Then I Free Rotated it at this setting to get the more wavy effect that matched my tube.

I used Alien Skin, Brushed Metal to the preset shape with Linear marked - use a color of your choice.

Add a drop of drop shadow that you like to the preset image.

Add a new Raster Layer.  

I picked a dark color on the first set I did, and on the second set a light color.
Then clicked into the color I wanted for this layer - to get to the Material Properties.

I want to add this layer with a texture effect to it - so check on the texture box
on the top.  The click on the arrow and pick a texture you might like.
Don't worry - play with the textures.  You might find something that looks fantastic!
You can always undo and redo this technique.

I picked Hatch Fine with the dark orange color that matched my tube.  
Filled with this layer and it looks different with the texture applied.
Then put the blend mode to soft light setting.

Then pasted another copy of my tube that I have resized a copy first with the
pixel sizing to a height of 300.

I resized by percents for years until someone showed me this - it saves so much time.

Add your favorite Drop Shadow to this tube.

New Raster Layer.  Select All, Selections, Modify, Contract by 5.  Invert.
Then fill with a color that you like - I picked the light color - and filled.
Select None.
Used the Brushed Metal effect to the edging, added my favorite
drop shadow for borders.  But feel free to use what you like.

Add your copyright infromation as well as any appropriate license numbers that may be needed.

I added the Name and tried it beneath the texture layer and above it - to see which I liked better.

I always save my non-animated sets as a .png.

Here is another example, that I used a FTU artist with the second set, Johanna Pieterman.
