Welcome to Creative Addictions!!
Our tutorials are open to everyone!!
But our group has a lot more to offer in the way of
challenges and shares, so you're very Welcome to
register and join us.


Supplies

My Supplies http://www.4shared.com/file/2AtaUShd/DBV_OnTheFloorTut.html, made for this tut so not to
be used for other tuts ;)

I'm using the artwork of OrkusArt, currently available at http://picsfordesign.com/en/


Plugins used

Alien Skin Xenofex 2 Constellation


Fonts used are Rage Italic LET and BankGothic BT



Let's start


Open the tut texture, that's what we're working on,
open the tut speakers and paste them above the texture, change blend mode to lighten.
open the tut lines and add them above the speakers, change blend mode to overlay and lower
opacity to 70.

Add the tut text, move it just above the bottom line.
Use the Rectangle tool, linestyle Solid, width 2, foreground color
#e914ca (pink), background color black. make a small rectangle that fits behind the text
convert to raster, then Effects - Texture effects - Blinds, width 2, opacity 25, color white and
horizontal checked. Change blend mode to Screen.
If my text doesn't fit to your tubes, here's how I made mine;
Use font BankGothic BT size 12, kerning -100, color white, I've used lyrics from Jennifer Lopez's
On the Floor "Dance the night away live your life and stay young on the floor".

Add the tubes you wanna use, I've used a closeup between the speakers to the left and a
downsized and mirrored one between the speakers to the right (this layer is below the closeup)
On the right one, duplicate, Adjust - Blur - Gaussian blur 5, change blend mode to Screen and lower
opacity to 60, give the original a drop shadow, mine's got -2, -8, 35, 10, black.
On the closeup duplicate and add the same blur, change blend mode to Hard Light and give the
original a drop shadow same as before but change -8 to just 8 ;)

To make the frame add a new raster layer on top,
select all, selections - modify - contract by 6, invert and flood fill it black.
Keep selection, add a new raster layer above, selections - modify - contract by 1,
flood fill #e914ca (pink), deselect. Adjust - Add noise, Random, Noise 70, Monochrome checked.
duplicate it twice and add Xenofex 2 Constellation at: 2, 1, 1, 1, 100, 100.
hit the random seed button for the next 2 frames and close 2 of the constellation layers.
On the black frame, add Drop shadow, -1, -2, 35, 4, black, shadow on new layer checked.
Duplicate the shadow layer, mirror and flip it.

Now we're gonna animate the speakers
duplicate the speaker layer 2 times.
Use the Warp Brush with these settings

on the first duplicate layer click 2 times on the big speaker (aim for the center and see that it
expands, just undo if you don't like the look if it) and click once on the other two speakers,
close the layer and go to the next one.

on the next layer click twice on each of the to smaller speakers, close layer and move to the original.

on the original layer click once on the big speaker.

Add proper
then we're ready to animate

open animation shop 3

Copy merged
paste as new animation in ani shop
back in PSP, close the used speaker and constellation layer and open the next ones
copy merged again and paste after current in ani shop.
Do the same with the third layers, then select all and change frame properties to 15
view animation and see if you're happy with it ;)

I've animated my name same way as with the frame, used font Rage Italic LET color #790825.
Placed mine in the middle of the tag between the two tubes.

Adding a little adjustment to not get your names shaky, on mine it worked good the first time
but I see some shaky names around and got it myself trying again, so here's how to
not get it shaky ;) :

When you're happy with the size and placing, convert to raster and copy it,
then paste it as a new image before moving on to the steps below ;)


Adjust - Add noise, Random, Noise 70, Monochrome checked.
duplicate it twice and add Xenofex 2 Constellation at: 2, 1, 1, 1, 100, 100.
hit the random seed button for the next 2 frames, then add a drop shadow 0, -4, 35, 10, black.

Then copy each of the 3 name layers and paste first one as a new animation then the next 2 after current.
select all, copy, then on the tag, select all and hit Ctrl+E, then you see your name on the tag
and can place it where you like.

view animation and save as...

Over to the avatar.

open a new image 150x150, scroll up and make the same frame as on the tag
then copy merged on the tag and paste below the frames move it to your liking
I've ended up with the closeup for mine.

Add proper and animate it same way as the tag. I've just used just my V for the avatar, but animated it
same way as for my name on the tag, so you know where to look if you wanna do it ;)


And you're done

Hope you've had fun.

Would love to see your results so you're more than Welcome to add them below.

Oh hey I didn't read that far into the tut though Vaybs. I skim read... oops

Oh hey that avi is too big - even I made it a little too big so I am sorry about that. Max size is 150x175 so yeah I kinda over did it just a tad. Feel free to resize.

Les - I don't use that cell number anymore so it prolly been disconnected from the network.

I miss you fellas too but I am not about to rejoin just to get my bum kicked out again - LOL - I'll think about it and sleep on it.

Awesome tut Vaybs, I don't think I've ever used the warp brush either so this is cool. So here's my results and I made a set for you too. I chose not to animate the name, I know how to do it and not make it jump but just liked it better like this.
