Boo-tiful Witch

Photobucket


This tutorial was written by me and for those
who have a good working knowledge of psp.

Supplies Needed

Tube of choice, I used artwork by ©grafik at PFD.
Font of choice, I used Susanna.
Mask: Vabs #107
Plug-In : Eye Candy 4000 - gradient glow.(optional)
Animation Shop (AS)




Let's Begin!


Open template and shift D and close out original and
delete info layer.

Enlarge canvas so you have space to work.

Select / Float  Bottom Oval then add
new layer and flood fill with color from
tube. I selected 2 colors similar and made gradient.

Keep selected and modify - expand by 2 then add
new layer and fill with black and then modify - contract by 5
and hit delete.
Add bevel if desired and then gradient glow 3,25,100 white.
Add drop shadow.

Close original layer.

Select / Float  rectangle then add
new layer and flood fill with lighter color.

Close original layer.

Select  Circle layer and do the same
with different color.

Effects - Fine leather with these settings.

color:black
angle:30
blur:0
transparency:250
number of furrows:41
Length of furrows:6

Apply twice.

Close original layer.

Select / Float text layer then
add new layer and flood fill with color.
Add bevel and then gradient glow like above.

Crop to size you want.

Add new layer and move under all layers except white.
Apply mask and merge group.

Paste web and add drop shadow.

Add name.

Add copyright.

Paste tube.

If you are using same as I did and want to animate spider
this is what I did...

crop around spider and promote as new layer and
delete off tube.

duplicate spider and move down to where you like it and duplicate again
and keep doing this untill you have something like mine here...



for top spider just crop web off

Once you have yours like mine close off all the duplicated spiders leaving
original showing.

Copy Merged and paste into AS.

Back to psp and on spider layer showing crop off spider
and open next one down so it should look like he dropped down.

Copy merged and paste in AS.

Continue to do this for the other spiders and once you get to bottom with
spider in AS then Ctrl A and copy and paste as new animation and keeping all selected
go to Animations - reverse frames and copy them and paste after your last frame.

Now back to psp and close all but the spider at top and
copy merged and paste after last frame in AS.

Ctrl A and change frame properties to 20. Select first frame and change to 25.

Save as gif.

That's it!
