Beasts in the Wild




Tutorial is made in PSP10 and Animation Shop 3



Supplies


My supplies HERE



I'm using the artwork of Amberly Berendson


Plugins used 

Eye Candy 4000 HSB Noise
and Gradient Glow

Font used on my name is called KolkerBrush


Let's start


Open a new image 650 x 250 flood fill with color #3c5723
Duplicate the background layer 3 times and on all 4 add
Add Eye Candy 4000 - HSB Noise with these settings


Just hit the random seed button on nr 2, 3 and 4. 

Add a new raster layer above, select all, Selections - Modify - Contract 6
Selections - Invert and flood fill with color #8cb366, deselect.
Add HSB Noise with these settings



and give it a subtle gradient glow, I picked a blue one from the butterfly.

Add the bitwelement and the butterfly.
Arrange them to your liking ;)

Now find a fitting tube, 
I've used a closeup and moved it to the left.
Give it a drop shadow, I've used -2, 7, 50, 3, 

Add the wordart down on the right, and recolor it to fit your tag. 
Remember the proper ©

Add your name of choice (I always prepare the animation first and add names in Ani Shop)

If you're happy with it then you're ready to animate ;)

Copy Merged (CTRL+SHIFT+C)

Paste in Ani Shop

Close the background layer you've used and copy merged again.

Paste after current in Ani Shop
do the same to the next 2 background layers, so you now have 4 frames 
in Ani Shop.
Select all and change Frame Properties to 25. 
View Animation and save if happy with your result !! 

An avatar is optional but here's what I did to make mine
Open a new image 150 x 150 select all, Selections - Modify - Contract 5
Selections - Invert and flood fill with color #8cb366 
Deselect.

Add the closeup of your tube you used and move it to the spot you wanna use.
If you need a background you can use one from the banner, I didn't need any.

Duplicate the frame layer 3 times and on all 4 add
Add Eye Candy 4000 - HSB Noise same as on the background above, remember to hit the random 
seed button on the other 3 ;)
Close the bottom 3 frame layers.
Add the proper ©

Then you're ready yo animate the avatar.
Copy Merged (CTRL+SHIFT+C)

Paste in Ani Shop

Close the frame layer you've used, open the next one and copy merged again.

Paste after current in Ani Shop
do the same to the next 2 frame layers, so you now have 4 frames 
in Ani Shop.

add names and save your tags!!



And you're done

Hope you've had fun.
