Stupid Cupid 2 PTU

I Wrote this Tutorial,and any resemblance to others is purely a coincidence. Please DO NOT place this on any Website or post it in groups without my permission.
The tubes I used are from Adrie Janssen-Stark and can be found Here 
You have to be a member to access the tubes.
The awesome kit is called "Stupid Cupid" and is by Purple's Kreationz and can be bought Here 
You need a close-up tube and a regular tube.

27.) On skullfly--duplicate 2X's= 3 layers---rename fly 1,2,3
close out 2 & 3 and on fly1---with raster deform tool--move the wings a little towards the middle--by grabbing the nodes on the side and moving them toward the middle--(close out layer and open next one) repeat this with fly 2 and 3 moving them a little a time (see Example below)

28.) On tube layer---with Lasso tool--point to point---feather= 1, smoothing= 0, anti-alias checked
go around the lantern and the ball in her hand--once done-duplicate it 2 X's= 3 layers--rename them light 1,2,3, close out layers 2 & 3, and working on light 1--go to Effects---VM Natural--Lightburst--use these settings--
