Born to Ride


 
For this tutorial you will need a close up tube and a body tube.
I am using the amazing art of Arthur Crowe.
You need a license to use Arthur’s art.
I purchased mine here.
Also check out Arthur's new store, here.

I am using a fab kit by Pimp’d Designz called
“Outlaw”.
You can get the kit here.
Love this kit, thank you Cora!

You will also need a circular mask, I used Weescotslass’ mask 209, here.

For the effect on the text you will need 
Alien Skin, Eye Candy 5, Impact, Chrome.
 You will need a fattish font, I used Hardy Ha Ha.




Don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing them, otherwise they will be blurry (adjust – sharpen – unsharp mask, radius and clipping 5, strength 30).

Drop shadow used is vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 75, blur 5.



Open a new transparent canvas 600 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white. Open one of the papers and copy, I used pd12-pp10.  Make a new layer on your canvas, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply the mask.

Open pd12-skyline, duplicate and close the original. Apply the drop shadow and then apply the same the mask. Resize 85%, copy and paste on your canvas. Merge down onto the first mask layer.

Open pd12-frame-03 and paste as a new layer. Resize 40%. Select the interior of your frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10.  Make a new layer below the frame layer and floodfill with a dark grey colour, I used #131413. Do not de-select.

Open your close up tube, mirror it and paste as a new layer. Resize as needed and position inside the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess tube. Apply the drop shadow to both the frame and tube layers and the lower the opacity of the tube to around 65.

Open your main tube and paste as a new layer, resize as required, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-wings and paste as a new layer. Resize 75%, drag down below the main tube layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-ribbon05 and paste as a new layer. Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-bike-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55% and place in position.

Open pd12-print-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, drag down so it just above the masked layers, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-fence and paste as a new layer. Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
Open pd12-frame-04 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-print-02 and paste as a new layer. Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, then crop your tag and resize if required, add your copyright information.

Open your font and type out your name, it doesnt matter what colour you use. Apply Alien Skin, Eye Candy 5, Impact, Chrome. Click on "Basic" and choose "Indoor - Office Space". Apply the drop shadow to the text.

Export your tag 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, please email me here.  As always, I would love to see your result!
