FTU- Man Of Mayhem

*Click for bigger

This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind. 
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working 
knowledge of PSP and was written using PSP X2, 
tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: I'm using the Sons Of Anarchy freebie add on from Tragic Scraps.
You can snag this from her blog here.
If you cannot get the download to look, check for 
another link to 4-shared she has posted in the comments. ;)
*Show the love when you stop by to get the kit.;)

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Zlata_M.
You can find more awesome artwork at PFD.
Do not use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow

Font: Downcome

Drop shadow: 5 5 35 4, black 
Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

Open a new canvas 600 X 600 px.
Copy & paste Tag Back 1. Resize 80%.

Next, copy & paste Frame 1. Resize 80%.
With your magic wand, click inside the frame.
Modify- Expand by 4. Invert.
Copy & paste Paper 10, resized 50%. Select none.
Keep the paper on top of the frame in layers palette.
Add a drop shadow to the frame.

Now add your tube. Resize this bad boy 55%.
Place him off to the left.
Add Xero-Radiance at these settings:
Then add a drop shadow.

Now we'll add some elements.
For each one I added, I sharpened & added a drop shadow to, 
unless specified otherwise.

Street Sign 2- 50%. Rotate 15 right.

Men Of Mayhem Patch- Rotate 10 left.

VP Vest- 65%. Roate 12 right.

Gun 3- 45. Rotate 25 left.

Bullet Holes- use your lasso to select one.
Copy & paste this onto the tag, resizing 35%.
Repeat 2 more times so you have 3 bullet holes.
Place one of them on the sign.
No drop shadow on these.

Add any other elements if you prefer.
Crop & resize to your own liking.

Now add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Now add your name.  
Add a gradient glow at these settings: 
 Then add your drop shadow to this layer.

Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG & enjoy. =)



  1. the freebie for "son of a gun" is not available for download. Is there a password that we need....My group really wants to work this tut if the supplies are available again. thank you kindly

    1. The password she has set isn't working. I think mediafire is being a pill. I did message her & hopefully she can have it fixed for you soon. ;)

    2. Check the comments on that post. She has another link to the kit at 4-shared that she posted in the comments. ;)
