PTU- Son Of A Gun

*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 Sons Of Anarchy from Tragic Scraps.
You can find information on where to buy this kit on her
blog here.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Arthur Crowe.
You can find more of his artwork at Arthur Crowe's Factory.
Do not use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Filters: Eye Candy Imapct 5- Gradient Glow

Font: BikerBones

Drop shadow: 2 2 40 4, black 
Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

With your magic wand, click inside the frame.
Modify- Expand by 4. Invert.
Copy & paste Paper 7. Resize 80%.
Hit delete. Keep selected & add your closeup.
Hit delete & select none.
Crop to canvas. Duplicate the closeup.
On the top one, add a Gaussian blur of 3.
Change the blend mode to Soft Light at 40%.
Change the bottom one to Luminance (L).
Add a drop shadow.

Move your frame up above your closeup & paper in layers palette.
Add a drop shadow to your frame.

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

Gears- 80%. Place in the bottom right of the frame.

 Position on the upper left of the frame.

Pack O Ciggys- 17%. 
Place this in front of the gear cluster.

Liquor- 65%. Place with the gear cluster so that 
the one bottle is lying on the ciggys a bit.

Bike- 65% Move this on the lower left of the frame.

Boot- 35%. Duplicate. Place these with the bike.

Dragon Skull- 50%. 
Place this above the gears on the right side of the frame.

Shades- 45%. Place by the boots.

at the bottom of the frame.

Tag Back 2- 75%.

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

Now add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Now add your name.  Give it a bevel:

Then add your drop shadow to this layer.

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

I hope you enjoy your hot, hunka-hunka new tag. =)
