True Blood Bill- PTU


Download this tutorial in a PDF file.
I've used the lovely PTU artwork of PinUp Toons. You can purchase it at CDO.
This is a PTU kit called True Blood: Bill by Pimp’d Designz. Visit her blog for links to her store HERE.
The mask is WSL_Mask360 and 44, by Wee Scot Lass.
Font used is Snaggle Puss.

Let’s Begin!
Open a new canvas that’s 800x800 pixels.
Open frame-03 from kit.
Copy and Paste it as a new layer.
Resize it smaller a little to give yourself more room to work and center.
Copy and Paste your tube as a new layer above your frame.
Layers>Duplicate your frame and drag the layer above your tube layer.
Use your eraser tool to erase the portions of the upper frame that are over the left leg and the
hands. Also erase the left side of the upper frame (you’ll see why later).
On your tube layer, Layers>Duplicate.
Adjust>Blur>Gaussian Blur- 3
Change the blend mode to Soft Light.
Open paper pp-11 from kit.
Copy and Paste it below your bottom frame.
Resize it to fit behind the frame and erase any portion hanging outside of the frame.
Open print-01 from kit.
Copy and Paste it below the background paper.
Resize and arrange it to the left as shown.
Layers>Duplicate, Image>Mirror to place one on the right.
Open green-01 from kit.
Copy and Paste it as a new layer.
Resize and arrange it to the left as shown.
Layers>Duplicate, Image>Mirror to place one on the right.
Open button-02 from kit.
Copy and Paste it under your tube layer.

Make sure that your upper frame isn’t covering it.
If it is then just erase it some more.
Open key from kit.

Open paper pp-08 from kit.
Copy and Paste it at the bottom of the tag.
Add your mask by going to Layer>Load/ Save Mask>Load Mask from Disk.
Apply the mask named WSL_Mask360.
Merge the mask group by right clicking the layer of the finished mask, go to Merge>Merge
Group.
Resize and arrange it to fit as shown.
Follow the same process using paper pp-07 as a new layer, and applying mask WSL_Mask44.
I used the font Snaggle Puss. Use a size you like and a stroke width of 4.
Foreground color to white and background color to #593117.
Duplicate the layer and select the second font layer with the font tool.
Set the stroke width to 0.
Merge the 2 font layers and convert to a raster layer.
Drop shadow everything except the duplicated tube and the mask.
Effects>3D Effects>Drop Shadow, set the drop to 3 vertical, 2 horizontal, 75 opacity, 4 blur.
Add your copyright info and your tag.
Merge everything in Layers>Merge>Merge Visible
Crop and resize as needed!
All Finished!
