A tube of your choice. I am using the lovely artwork of Jose Cano, which can be purchased here:

Plugins needed:

Filters Unlimited 2, which can be found here:

Alien Skin Splat Demo, and edges, Alien Skin Xenoflex 2, lightening, which can be found here:

Xero, porcelain, which can be found here :

Supplies needed:

Mask 12, and the bat ring which can be found here in Masks and Embellishments/Halloween:

Lets begin!

Open a new image 600x500 and floodfill in white. Go to the ellipse tool, and with foreground
#a02844, background null, draw an ellipse, width 4, then, objects, align, centre in canvas, and
convert to raster layer.

Draw another ellipse, this time with foreground as black, width 40. Align in the centre and convert to raster
layer as before.
Plugin, Filters Unlimited 2, and use these settings as below, changing the intensity and lightness
to the figures given:

Plugins again, and Alien Skin Splat, edges, with the settings as below:

Click on the black circle frame in the layers palette, and draw another ellipse, this time width 10, colour #a92b37,
or a matching colour from your tube. Align in the centre, and convert to raster layer. You may need to use
the deform tool for a better fit. Use the Filters Unlimited 2 settings as before. Now go to
effects, inner bevel, and use the settings below:

Add a close up of your tube as a new layer, and position more to the left hand side. With the magic wand, click inside the frame, and go to selections, modify by 5, then selections invert. Now click on your tube layer, and hit delete. Deselect.
Move this layer below the black frame layer.

Click on raster layer 1 and with background #a02844 (or a colour of your choice), draw an ellipse that
does not show outside of the black frame. This will be the background. Align centrally, and convert
to raster layer. Plugins and Alien Skin Eye Candy 5, choose textures, swirl, with the settings
as below, then rename this layer as lightening:

Add your full tube as a new layer, and position a little to the right, within the frames. Resize as necessary.
convert to raster layer. Also porcelain your close up tube. Go to Xero and porcelain with the settings below:
On the close up tube only, lower the opacity to 78% in the layer palette.

Add the bat ring as a new layer and position under the background layer in the layer palette.
You may need to resize, or you can use the deform tool to help it fit. Go to adjust, and
sharpen if you do this.

Now to add the drop shadows ... to your large tube, all frame layers, and the bat ring, as follows:


Click on raster layer 1 and add a new layer. Floodfill in #a92b37, have mask 12 handy
in Pspro. Go to layers, new mask layer from image. Make sure mask 12 is selected in the source window, and also that source luminance and invert mask data are checked, and apply. Merge group. Apply the Eye 5
swirl settings again. Now duplicate the group mask layer, for a deeper finish.

For your name, font used is Broadway, size 40, stroke 2, foreground black, background
#a92b37. Convert to raster layer, and apply the swirl settings, only this time click add
swirl to original image. Now drop shadow as above. Place your name in the bottom right hand
of the tag.

For the word art, same colours, but used singularly, font used is Chiller, size 24, stroke 1.
Add a drop shadow, and image, rotate, free rotate, 45 degrees left. Place in the top
left hand corner.

Click on raster layer one and add a new layer. Floodfill in #a92b37. Draw a large ellipse,
that is a little larger than the black frame. Convert to raster layer and align central.
Go to adjust, blur, gaussian blur. Change the radius to 22 and apply.

Add your credits.

Now to animate:

*Using the background/lightening layer, click on it with the magic wand, i used tolerance of 132
to get the circle.
Go to plugins, and Alien Skin Xenoflex 2, and lightening. Use the settings as shown below:

Deselect and copy merged into Animation Shop, and paste as a new animation. *Back to PSPro and use the
back button till the lightening has gone, but the magic wand circle is still there. Apply
lightening again, only this time click on the random seed button. Deselect, and copy merged
into Animation Shop, pasting after the current frame.** Repeat again from * to **.

In Animation Shop, go to edit, and select all. Go to Animation, and frame properties, and
change the display time to 22. Now animate, and save as a GIF file.

Thats it you are all finished! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
