Dead Sexy





 
In this tutorial I am using the art of Verymany.
You need a license to use Verymany’s art,
you can get yours here.

I am using a brand new kit called “Dead Sexy” by

Unfortunately this kit is no longer available but I have left the
tut up for people that already have it or have a substitute. 
You will also need a mask, I used mask 11 by Brutal Designz,
you can get it here.

Font used is Angelina, 
a free font which you can get here.



 
On resizing, elements become a little blurry so don’t forget to sharpen them (adjust – sharpness – unsharp mask, radius and clipping 5, strength 30.

Drop shadow used throughout is vertical 5, horizontal -5, opacity 80, blur 10.




Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers and copy, I used tk-deadsexy-paper7.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply the mask. Resize 85%.

Open tk-deadsexy-3hearts and paste as a new layer. Resize 75% and move over a bit to the left.  This element already has a drop shadow so no need to add one.

Open tk-deadsexy-splatter1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize also 75%, drag down below the 3heart element and duplicate. Move one layer down and to the left and the other layer up and to the right. Apply the drop shadow to each layer.

Open tk-deadsexy-fence and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open tk-deadsexy-string2, paste as a new layer, bring to the top, resize 75%  and place in position. Again this element has a drop shadow so no need to add one.

Open tk-deadsexy-collar and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open tk-deadsexy-frame5 and paste as a new layer. Resize 50% and position on the collar, we will move it inside the collar later but you need to get it in the right position now.

Open another of the papers and copy, this time I used tk-deadsexy-paper6.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame layer and paste the paper into the selection. Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize as required and position inside the frame and then apply the drop shadow.   

Go back to the string layer, close off your tube layer so you can see what you are doing better and draw an oblong selection around the loop on the right hand side as in my screenshot below, hit delete, right click and paste the deleted part as a new layer and move up so its between the frame and the tube and then line the two parts up.




Now use the same technique on the collar to position the frame/tube inside it drawing the rectangle on the bottom part of the collar.

Open tk-deadsexy-wordart1 and paste as a new layer. Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positioning of all your layers and make any necessary adjustments, crop your tag and resize if required, add your copyright information and text and export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions, you can email me here. As usual, I would love to see your result!
