The tube is by Igolochka and can be found on her deviantart site Here
Drop Shadow = DS = 2,2,50,5 black
900 X 900
1.) Resize = R- (Tube -if needed) - Copy and Paste = C&P - as a New Raster Layer = NRL = place in Center of canvas.
Duplicate = dup. - tube - Gaussian blur-6- Blend mode = soft light - opacity = 100 - merge down =MD - rename tube - Tag Reference = TR - DS
2.) Bow 2 - R = 80% - sharpen - C&P as a NRL- place bottom left of tube - free rotate - left -25 - DS & TR
3.) Heart Blade - R= 65% - Unsharp Mask = USM - C&P as a NRL - place on top left side - free rotate right 25 - DS & TR
4.) Boots - R = 65% - USM - C&P as a NRL - mirror - place on right side bottom - DS & TR
5.) Bones - C&P as a NRL - move layer on top of tube...DS
6.) Chain Fence - C&P as a NRL - place on top of bottom layer - move slightly left and a little lower - TR - NO DS
7.) Candle - C&P as a NRL - place bottom left - DS - TR
8.) Chocker - R= 50% USM - C&P as a NRL - place on top of boots - free rotate Left 20 - DS & TR
9.) Eyeball N Bones - R=80% - USM -C&P as a NRL - Place right side of tube and move it below the tube layer - DS & TR
10.) Drips - C&P as a NRL - rename - Drips 1 - Move to top left - TR - NO DS ( will animate this later)
11.) Cupcake - R = 70% & 80% - USM - C&P as a NRL - place on bottom , next to boots - DS - Dup. and mirror - TR & MD
12.) Glitter - C&P as a NRL - place below chain layer - move up a little -- NO DS - TR
13.) Glitter Bits - C&P as a NRL - move to right side of tag - move layer right below tube layer- TR - NO DS
14.) Skull Hand - C&P as a NRL - Place on top chain fence - move layer to right above chain- DS & TR
15.) Kitty - R = 60% - USM - C&P as a NRL -Place on center bottom between the cupcakes - DS & TR
16.) Skull 1 - rename layer - (in case you animate) - R = 60% USM -C&P as a NRL- Place on top center - DS & TR
17.) Resize all layers 56% = 504 X 504
18.) Paper 14 - C&P as a NRL - place on bottom layer - add mask - delete mask - and ungroup layers -
19.) Keeping bottom layer closed, close out all layers above the tube layer - now with tube layer and all the ones below - Merge Visible - rename tube
20.) Open all the other layers- keeping Skull 1, the Drips 1 , and bottom layer closed. Now close tube.
Merge Visible and rename top
21.) Now you should have Skull 1, Drips1, Tube and bottom
22.) Now add all Copy right info and your name if your not going to animate, go ahead and merge all visible.. save as PNG.
If your going to animate follow me.
Duplicate Drips 1 , 5X's = 6
rename them 1-6
close all layers but 1 & 2, move layer 2 down, keeping it aligned with #1.. do this for all 6 layers...when happy close them all but 1
Open Animation shop
here is where we get tricky, so follow if you can....Good Luck, I was confused too...lol
Copy merged and paste= CMP into Animation Shop = AS
Opacity = OP
1 -- CMP into AS as New animation = Op =100
2 --==OP=100 / #1 = 80 /CMP after current frame
3 --== OP= 100 / #2 = 80 / #1 =60 / CMP after current frame
4 --==OP = 100/ #3 = 80 / #2 = 60
/#1 = 40 / CMP after current frame
5 --== OP = 100 / #4 = 80 / #3 = 60 / #2 = 40 / #1 = 20 / CMP after current frame
6--==OP = 100 / #5 = 80 / #4 = 60 / #3 = 40 / #2 = 20 / #1 = 0 /CMP after current frame
when your done you will need to click on 1st frame and edit all, then frame properties = 45
go to animation properties and choose - opaque - white.
when your happy add name and save as GIF..
example below, I hope you understood this, I would really like to see your results, just email them to me..
