For this tutorial you will need the following:
Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.
Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Ismael Rac, which you need a license to use.
This tube is called 2013 Sexy Pinup Girl and is coming soon to Ismael's store.
It should be released in the store within 1-2 days of this tut being posted.
This tube has several layers, but unlike others, has layers to make her look like a sexy pinup and layers that turn her into a Halloween tube (greenish frankenstein type skin)
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU Kit called Sexy Pinup Girl by Crystal's Creations,
this kit is made to match the tube and will also be available in Ismael's store as soon as the tube is released.
Font of choice, I am using Lunacy More
Mask: Vix Big Mask 1
Plugins: No outside plugins used
