FTU: Forever Dark


This tutorial was written by me on September 7, 2018. The results are of my own imagination.  Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental.  

Please DO NOT claim this tutorial as your own.

This was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Please keep in mind that I write the tutorial as I am creating it.

Sometimes I may not explain properly where to place things so please see my example if you are ever in doubt :)

Supplies needed

I am using a drop shadow (D/S) of V 0 H 5, Opacity 75, blur 10, color black throughout the tutorial unless otherwise stated.

Let's get started.

Open a new 750x750 transparent image.  We will resize later.

Add a new raster layer and select all.

Open paper of choice.  I used paper 5, copy and close the original.  Standing on the new raster layer edit, paste into selections.  Select none.  Layers, new mask layer, from image, in the drop-down, locate Vivienne's mask and click ok.  Merge group.  Select all, float, defloat.  Open paper 2, copy and close the original.  Standing on the mask layer, edit, paste into selections, select none.  Resize by 95%.

Open element 7, copy and close the original.  Paste as a new layer and move up slightly.

Copy your tube and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70% and drop shadow.

Open frame 2, copy and close the original.  Select the top mask layer and paste.  Resize 60%.  Image, free rotate to the right by 15 degrees.  Move to the upper right side (see mine for placement).  Using your magic wand, click inside the frame.  Selections, modify, expand by 5.  Add a new raster layer under the frame.  Open paper 1, copy and close the original.  Standing on the new raster layer, paste into selections.  Do not deselect.  Maximize your tube, mirror and copy it.  Standing on the paper layer, paste as a new layer and move into the frame.  Once happy with the placement, selections, invert and hit delete on your keyboard.  Select none.  Change the blend mode of this layer to Hard Light and lower the opacity to 80.  Drop shadow the frame.  Merge the tube layer down onto the paper layer then merge the frame layer down to the tube and paper layer.

Open element 6, copy and close the original.  Select the top mask layer and paste.  Move to the upper right corner so it sticks out from the top of the frame.  Duplicate and resize this layer 80% and move down and to the right so it sticks out on the side of the frame.  Drop shadow each layer.

Open element 19, copy and close the original.  Select the frame layer and paste.  Resize 40% and move to the left so it covers part of the moon.  Duplicate and move slightly to the right and down so it is behind the shoulder of the tube.  Duplicate one more time and mirror.  Move to the bottom right of the frame.  Drop shadow each layer.

Open element 14, copy and close the original.  Select the top leaf layer and paste.  Resize 40% and move to the left so it covers both leaf layers.  Duplicate and mirror.  Move to the bottom right of the frame.  Drop shadow each layer.
