Tutorials 7 and 8

I'm on a roll this weekend! :D

Tutorial 7
First, we'll go from Tut7Before.png to CubsHonor.png using The GIMP 2.2.

I started with this cropped and scaled image from an A Bit of Fry & Laurie screencap: Tut7Before.png.

01. Sharpen to 50.
02. Duplicate base, set to Screen 100%.
03. Duplicate screen layer, set to Overlay 100%.
04. New layer, a4f8e7, set to Burn 60%, erase the area over the tie.
05. New layer, e6d29f, set to Soft Light 75%, erase the area over the tie.
06. New layer, 9fa4a7, set to Burn 30%, erase the area over the tie.
07. Apply texture reve2-05.jpg by reve_lucide at lucide_icons, set to Overlay 75%, erase the area over the tie.
08. Text was applied to top layer, Palatino Linotype Bold, 15 pt., e8f2c4.
09. Duplicate text layer.
10. Duplicate the text layer again, change color to 00000, move underneath the original text layer, offset one pixel
       down and one pixel to the right.
       a. Use Layer, Transform, Offset
       b. Enter 1 for both X and Y values. (If you enter -1 in both values, the text will offset 1 pixel up and 1 pixel to the left.)
       c. Blur the layer once (Filter, Blur, Blur).

Tutorial 8
Next, let's go from Tut8Before.png to RussianSpy.png with GIMP.

I started with this cropped and scanned image from an A Bit of Fry & Laurie screencap: Tut8Before.png.

01. Sharpen to 65.
02. Duplicate base, set to Overlay 75%.
03. New layer, 9fa4a7, set to Overlay 100%.
04. New layer, e8bdc4, set to Burn 30%.
05. New layer, white, set to Soft Light 75%.
06. New layer, e6d29f, set to Darken Only 60%.
07. Duplicate base layer, move to become top layer, desaturate, set to Soft Light 50%.
08. Duplicate white layer, move to become top layer, keep at Soft Light 75%.
09. First piece of text was applied to upper left corner of the top layer, Agency FB Bold Condensed, 15 pt., e6daba. I used
       the same technique as in Tutorial 7 above to put a black offset 1 pixel down and to the right of the text.
10. Second piece of text was applied to the lower left corner of the top layer, same font, size, color, and offset details as in
       Step 09 above.

If you figure out a way to run off with Tony NotTheIcon, you will let me know, won't you? Coz then I can run off with Control NotTheIcon! Yum!

In the meantime, enjoy the piccy. :)
