Voodoo Chile Tutorial (PTU)

Voodoo Chile

This tutorial was written by Dianna Richards of Digicats (and Dogs)/Di Before Dawn Tutorials. Any resemblance to any other tutorial, published or unpublished, living, dead or undead, is purely coincidental.

Please do not rebroadcast, redistribute or otherwise claim this tutorial or any part there of as your own work.

Items you will need to complete this project:

The Blood Moon Volturi taggers kit by Gothic Inspirations. This is a PTU kit which may be purchased at the Gothic Inspirations store.

Tube of choice. I am using psp15527-VoodooGirl by Unholy Vault Designs. You must have a license to use this tube, which may be purchased at MyPSPTubes.com.

Wee Scots Lass mask #129 which you can download HERE.

Font(s) and/or alpha of choice. I am using Verdana which is a windows system font, and the Goth Chic alpha by Whispy's D'zines, which is a FTU alpha that may be downloaded from her blog.

Note that H# and V# refer to Horizontal and vertical coordinates on your canvas grid. Make sure you have View, Rulers checked in order to see the ruler grid.

When I say "Add to your canvas" I expect that you will copy and paste it as a new layer, unless otherwise state in the tutorial.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP. It was written using PSP X1, but should work in PSP 8 and up.

To begin, open a new raster layer canvas, 800 x 800 pxls, flood filled white.

Open Paper23-GI_BMVolturi. Layers --> Load/Save Mask --> Load Mask from Disk and select Wee Scots Lass mask # 129. Make sure the fit to canvas box is checked then click on load.

Copy Merged and add to main canvas, centered.

Open Mesh3-GI_BMVolturi and add to main canvas, centered. Image --> Free Rotate --> Rotate Right --> 10 degrees.

Open Splatter2-GI_BMVolturi and add to main canvas, centered at H550, V325.

Open Thorns-GI_BMVolturi and add to main canvas, centered at H400, V300.

Open psp15527-SCUVD-VoodooGirl, copy Raster 1 and add to main canvas, centered.

Add a drop shadow of choice to tube. I am using offsets vertical 7, horizontal -7, opacity 85, blur35, color very dark red (#400000).

Open GlitterSpill-GI_BMVolturi and resize to 50%. Add to main canvas, centered at H350, V550.

Open Leaves-GI_BMVolturi and add to main canvas, centered at H400, V600.

Open Pin-GI_BMVolturi and resize to 35%. Using your eraser tool, erase a small portion of the pin near the center so that it appear stuck through the canvas.

Copy and add to canvas, centered at H600, V450. Image --> free rotate --> rotate right 15 degrees.

Place a second copy of the Pin at H200, V250. Image --> free rotate --> rotate left 20 degrees.

Open Splatter-GI_BMVolturi, flip, copy and add to main canvas, centered at H400, V650.

On the materials pallet set your foreground color to black (#000000) and your background color to blood red (#7a0000). Using font of choice, add copyright info to the tag.

For the VoodooGirl tube that information is: (c) Unholy Vault Designs http://asaenath.deviantart.com Your_MPT_License#

I am using the font Verdana, 4 points, bold and centered at around H400, V700.

You can now save the artist's copy of your tag as a .pspimage file.

Using font or alpha of choice, add name of choice to tag. I am using the Goth Chic alpha by Whispy's D'zines. The name is centered at around H550, V100. Actual location will depend on length and size of name you are using.

Delete your white background layer and merge down. Resize to 75% (600 x 600 pxls) and save as a .png file and you're all done!
