It is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

Please do not copy and do not post elsewhere.
Do not translate or script.
This tutorial is written as if you have a general knowledge on how to use the program.

***What you'll need***
Program of Choice.
I am using Photoshop CS5
But, if you know your tools you can use any program of choice

Tube Of Choise
I am using the awesome artwork of Danny Lee
You can find this tube HERE
Be sure to check out all the awesome tubes he has while you're there

Template of Choice
I used Template036 by Dave @ Spawn's Forum Set Templates
You can find them HERE

Additional Filters needed
VanDerLee – Unplugged-X
Xenofex 2 - Constellation

~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Open the template
Delete the credits layer

Add a new layer above the “background layer”
Flood fill with gradient of choice
Delete the original background layer

Add a new layer above the “White Wavey Lines”
Select the white wavey lines and on the new layer
Flood Fill with a light color from your tube
Delete the orignal white wavey lines layer

Filter → VanDerLee → Unplugged-X → Pattern Offset
Change the blend mode to soft light

Add a new layer above the “Left RisingSun background”

Flood fill with the gradient we used before but flip it horizontally
Duplicate this layer and drag it to just above the “Right RisingSun Background”

Select the Left Rising song background so you have the ants around them
Invert the selection
On the gradient we just added above it, press delete

Repeat this with the one on the Right as well
Delete the originals
Change the blend mode of each to color
Add an inner shadow to each
Change the blend mode to normal, use a light pink from your tube, change the size to 16, everything else at default

Change each of the outlines to a darker color of your choice, I went with a teal color from her eyes
Delete the originals if you added a new layer to do this
Add a drop shadow to this layer, I just used the standard drop shadow I usually use

For the dots, change their color to the same color you used for the “White wavey lines” before
Delete the originals if you added a new layer to do this
Change their blend modes to overlay

To the left add your close up of your tube
Just above the “White Wave Lines”
Resize and reposition as you'd like
Once you have this duplicate it
Flip the new one horizontally and move it over to the right of the canvas in the same position as the other

Change the blend modes to Luminosity, the opacity to 30%
Duplicate each of them
Erase any of the new layers that are outside the rays
Have them just above these ray layers
Change the blend mode to overlay and the opacity to 50%

Add you full body tube in the middle
Resize and reposition to your liking
Duplicate this layer
On the bottom one, add a drop shadow

On the top one
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0 px
Change the blend mode to soft light lower the opacity to 50%

Add the words Sexy and Girl to your tag in white
Add the Pattern offset from before
Change the blend mode to soft light, add an outer glow to the words

Fill the white border with the gradient we've been using
Filer → Noise → Add Noise
Amount – 12.5%
Monochromatic checked

Select the border
Add a new layer
Select → Modify → Expand, by 2
Fill with black
have this layer below the gradient border we have
change the blend mode to overlay

Add your name

****Most Important****
Add your copy right information

If you're happy with you're result save to your liking and you're done!

Now if you want to animate

Duplicate your wavey lines 3 times, so you have a total of four layers

On the first layer
Filer → Xenofex 2 → Constellation

Star Size – 2.00
Size Variation – 25
Edge Star Density – 10
Overall Star Density – 0
Overdrive – 100
Twinkle amount – 100
Keep Original image

Click okay

Repeat this for each of the other 3 layer but, make sure you click random seed once for each of them

Now just have each one showing for a new layer in your animation program and it should have the sparkle you want

Press Play to watch it go, if you like it save it as a .gif and you're done!

Now for the Avi

Create a new Canvas 125px by px
Flood fill with black

On your banner merge all but your name and the borders
Drag the black background we just made over
Create a clipping mask
Resize and repostion the banner as you'd like in the avi
Merge them
Drag it back over to the other canvas

Add borders as we did before
Add your name or initial

***Most important***
Add your copyright information

Save to your liking and you're done!
