For this tut you will need either 2 tubes by the same artist,or a closeup and a regular tube..I used 3 from Faye's art..
Drop Shadows--DS= 2,2,50,5 black
800 X 800
1.) SBoatFrame--Resize =R= 43% and 80%-- adjust-sharpness--unsharp mask---DS
2.) With Magic wand, click in the center of frame---selections--Modify---Expand X4
3.) Copy And Paste = C&P-- as New raster layer= NRL-- invert on frame and delete on paper..Select None= SN--DS--and move paper below frame layer.
4.) Paper 10 (or paper of choice) R= 19%--with magic wand--click in center of frame---sel.--mod.--Ex. X5-- C&P as NRL---invert on frame and delete on paper layer--SN--move paper below tube--DS
5,) Close out background layer and Merge Visible..now rename it Frame--R= 70%--move to right side of Canvas---Tag Reference =TR.
6.) C&P main tube as NRL---R= if needed--move to the left side bottom---DS
7.) With freehand selection tool--point to point--feather = 0---draw around the bottom of tag (EX. 1)
C&P Ex.2 As a NRL and place in the selection--(the picture is by me and is to be used in the tut only...no CR needed) DS
8.) On top layer--sailing Light House---R= 35 % and 80% X 3---unsharp mask-C&P as NRL and place it in far background--TR--move layer right above background DS---& (DS= -2,-2,50,5 black)
9.) Ladder--R=20% and 80% X 3--unsharp mask--C&P as NRL and place it in front of Light house--DS.
10.) Paper 4 (or your choice) R= 23%---C&P as NRL and place on background layer---this is your sky. DS
11.) Cloud 1--R= 23 % and 80% X 200unsharp mask--C&P as NRL and place in upper left corner---DS--duplicate,and Mirror--or place where you want.
12.) Cloud 2-- R= 23% and 80% X 3--unsharp mask- C&P as NRL and place it where you wish, I placed mine like it was in the distance. DS
