Change Your View



 This tutorial was written

Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
I am using tubes by
Cuddly Rigor Mortis available
at CDO.


Supplies:
Tube of choice
Slats Template of choice
Mask of choice.
Font of choice

Plugins:
Xero Radiance
EyeCandy4000 Gradient Glow

Open up your slats template &
a tube of choice.
On the template, hold down
Shift D to duplicate it once.
Go to image - Canvas size
& set to 700x700. Makre sure
all layers is checked if needed.

Add a new raster layer above the
template layer. Fill with a color from
your tube.

Now in your layers palette, select the
template layer - making sure it is the
highlighted one. Go to Selections -
Select All - Float - Defloat - Invert.
Then on the Layers, select the color
fill layer. Press delete on your keyboard.
Select none.

Copy & paste your tube as a new layer
above the Fill layer.
Making sure the Color Fill layer is selected,
Go to Selections -
Select All - Float - Defloat - Invert.
Now select your tube layer & press delete
again to eliminate the tube outside of
the template.
Select none.

Merge the layers visible. Add a new Raster
layer under the merged layer.
Fill this layer with a light color from your tube.
I used a slightly off white one. Copy & paste
your tube above this layer & position at least
part of it under the template. Merge the new Fill
layer & the tube layer together.

Apply a mask of choice.
Merge group. Duplicate the layer once to see
the image better.

Back to the slat layer. Add a drop shadow of choice
to the layer. Duplicate once. Resize the copy layer 40%.
Move this layer so that it partially covers
a corner of choice of the main slat layer.
Apply the plugin Xero: Radiance with default settings
to the resized slats layer.

Select a color from your tube for the background fill color on
your Materials palette. Select your font tool.Select a font of choice
to use that fits your tag. Type out words of choice. For mine, i used the words Change Your View.
I used the rotate control on the box around the words to
rotate my text as wanted. Convert to Raster.
Apply EyeCandy4000 Gradient Glow - Fat with Glow Width 3.00
to the text. Add a drop shadow of choice.

Crop the tag to a desired size.
Add artist copyright & name to the tag.
Save as a png.
Thanks for trying my tutorial.
