New Tutorial Blue Ocean

Published by:

This is an updated tutorial of one I wrote in 2004. My original tutorial is here Rewrite: July 21, 2016.
This tutorial is entirely of my own making, any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

I used Tropical Siren By Pink Paradox Productions and Blue Ocean by © Alehandra Vanhek. This tube is an exclusive tube at PFD. You can not use this same tube without the proper license and purchasing of product.
This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP

Supplies / Filters needed
Artistic – Underpainting Available Here
Xero Filter – Fritillary and Porcelain Available Here
Eye candy 5 Impact: Glass and Gradient glow Available Here
Glow Settings Here

Font: ManicSea Available Here
Mask MD-mask3-4. Right click and save as Open in PSP to use or and to your masks folder

I try to write my tutorials as plain and clear as possible, but if I get you confused (and, if I do, I am sorry) you can always refer back to the image we are making for reference. Also, this is just a guideline (I write where I place the elements ) but, feel free to move them around, or add different elements. Have fun and experiment, it is the best way to learn new things.
