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 (2013 Sexy Tuxedo) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, 2014, by Amy Marie
Font of choice, I am using Whisper
Plugins: Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
I do use Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow on all my copyrights/credits layers
I do this because some forums will make a .png tag show up with a black background and then your
copyright doesn't show.
Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.
Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.
Let's get started!
Open a new canvas 850 x 850 pixels with a white background
Add the following:
104, place to the right, duplicate, mirror, drag the copies over each other so the
buildings somewhat line up over each other
105, arrange behind 104 layer on the right, duplicate & mirror
Copy and paste your tube, resize 45% arrange on the left
115 arrange on bottom left
76 resize 55% arrange on bottom right
122 resize 55% arrange behind city on left
18 resize 35% arrange on bottom right
109 arrange across buildings, add gradient glow of 3, white
126 resize 45% arrange on bottom left
125 resize 80% arrange above cityscape
124 arrange on top right behind the city, duplicate & mirror
crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
I added a gradient glow of #705524 with a width of 5 to my name text
