TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the fantastic artwork of Verymany.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: DRMR GRL by Pimp'd Designz.
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Big Apple.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
In this tut we'll play with flames.
If you don't wish to animate, just skip the steps marked *BLUE*
Use my tag as a guide for placement of elements.

Open a canvas 700x700 pixels.
Flood fill with the color of your choice.

Open pp 02.
Resize to 87%.
Center on canvas.
Grab a soft edge eraser.
Erase the edges to create a soft look.

I used these elements:
Duplicate this layer.
Resize the new layer to 50%
music note03

Open your tube.
Center to your liking.

Continue with these elements:
piano keys, resize to 75%
*Duplicate this layer twice.
Resize the second layer to 90 wide, 80 height.
Resize the third layer to 95 wide, 85 height.*
drum stick, resize to 35%
Duplicate this layer.
mic, resize to 35%
barb wire
Duplicate this layer.
music note01
kiss01, resize to 25%

Place a drop shadow on all layers except:
flames – all layers
On these layers, I also used:
wa01: Stroke, Outside, 1, color d5d3d5

music note01: Stroke, Outside, 1, color 830b99
Outer Glow

kiss01: Outer Glow

flames01: Outer Glow
You will have 3 layers of flames.
For the first layer I used the color 31107b

I used the same setting for the next two layers.
Color for second layer: c20f20
Color for third layer: white

Resize your siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color a21a75.
Stroke: Outside, 2, Black
I also used:
Bevel & Emboss
Outer Glow
Drop Shadow

Bevel & Emboss settings:

Click OK.

Outer Glow settings:

Click Ok.

You must now do this:
Put the artist's name, website, and your license number
of the tube you used on the siggy!!
Add your name (ie: Designed by Your Name) behind this info.
Make sure this info is legible and clearly seen.

If you don't want to animate, Save as PNG.
(If you want to maintain your layers
Always Save as PSD first.
Then you can save it as a PNG.
When doing both these steps
It is important to change the title of the tag.
When I Save as PSD,
I always name the tag what I want.
Then, when saving as a PNG,
I add the number 1 behind the name of the tag.
Like this:
Hard Rock Princess, Save as PSD
Hard Rock Princess1, Save as PNG
Otherwise, your PNG will overwrite your PSD
Merging your tag into one layer only.)

Open your animation window.
Set the time for .2
All layers should show in the first frame
second and third flames layers
Hide these two layers.

Click the square button, next to the trash can,
in the animation window.
This will duplicate the first animation frame.
Repeat this until you have 8 frames.

Highlight frame 2 in the animation window.
Now go over to your Layer Palette.
Hide the first flames layer.
Unhide flames second layer.

Third frame of animation:
Unhide flames layers 1 & 3.
Hide flames 2 layer.

Forth frame:
Hide flames 3 layer.
Unhide flames 1 & 2.

Fifth frame:
Hide flames 2 layer.
Unhide 1 & 3.
Sixth frame:
Hide flames 1 & 2 layers.
Unhide 3.

Seventh frame:
Unhide all 3 flames layers.

Eighth frame:
Hide flames 1 & 3 layers.
Unhide flames 2 layer.

Click Play.
If you like what you see...

Save as PSD. Then Save for Web & Devises.

I hope you had fun with this tut!

♥Tribute to Rieka♥

To honor Rieka and all she has blessed me with, I will be leaving all my tuts that I have written with her kits on my blog. They are not coming down. Even though her kits are no longer available, the tuts I wrote using them are my tribute to her. Hopefully, they will inspire you the way Rieka inspired me. Love You, Rieka! You'll be forever in my heart.♥

About Me

My Photo
Hi Ya'll! I'm Savage and I'd like to welcome you to Redneck Tuts. These are not your ordinary tuts, as they are geared toward those of us that don't have "working knowledge" of Photoshop or PSP. My tuts are all done in PS. They are designed to show you different techniques that you may not know. I hope you learn something that you can use in your creations in the future. Please, just have fun and put your own spin on these tuts. Be original and shine! Love Ya! ♥
