My Busby Barclay Bee













My Busby Barclay Bee



Hi all



Well I got to
creating today and I thought I’d try a Bee



However after
searching and search I couldn’t find a bee tut I liked



Only few out there so
I looked around for some ideas and came up with this



Little fellow... and
I’ve decided to write a tutorial for him for those that want to try



This tutorial was written by Michelle Mills on 18th February 2009.



Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.



I claim all rights to this tutorial.

Or the results of doing this tutorial for personal or commercial gain



This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of Paint shop Pro.



The results of this tutorial were done in Paint shop Pro Ultimate x2.

Supplies needed Eye
candy bevel



Eye candy 4000



Ok let’s go



First create a new
500x500 transparent image



Null your foreground
and background is black



Using your ellipse
tool draw out an oval shape



Align to the centre
and Convert to raster



Now use your mesh
tool to make a stinger do this until you’re happy



 



Now choose a
yellowish green colour for the body I used #b0ae13



Now using your
selection tool freehand point to point mark out small section for the yellow
band



And flood fill with
the yellow do this till you have as many bands of yellow as you want



 



Now go to Eye
Candy>impact>Bevel and use the following settings



59.67, 100, 100, 0,
inside selection, 0, shade interior checked,



Lighting 65, 47, 68,
60, highlight white, shadow black



Null your foreground
again and draw out a circle with your preset shape



Convert to raster and
use Eye candy bevel with same settings as before but change lighting to



66, 16, everything
else the same



Now move this to just
the right of your body



 

Now draw out a
slightly bigger circle for the head



And use eye candy
bevel again using the same settings but change lighting to



257, 60, 77, 73 all
others the same



Move the head to
slightly right of the small body



 

Now with your pen
tool draw freehand, tracking 10, create on vector checked, width 3, anti-alias
checked draw out your antennae



Convert to raster and
duplicate....move antenna until sitting way you like



Adjust your body as
you need to and merge visible



Now it’s wing time



With for foreground
null and background white draw out an oval with your ellipse preset shape



Then drop the opacity
to 20



Use cut-out with the following
settings



10, 10, 70, 40



Now free rotate wing
45 degrees



So you can see what you’re
doing you may want to create a new raster flood fill and send to bottom



Move the wing to the
body segment until sits where you want



Duplicate wing layer
and merge down



Duplicate merged
layer and mirror and place other wing



Duplicate a wing
layer and resize to 70% and then free rotate 45 degrees



Move this wing to
major body area and then duplicate and mirror



Move the wings around
until placed where you like



Now close off your
white raster layer and then merge visible



Now for the eyes



With your circle
preset tool draw out a small circle to fit on the face for eyes



Duplicate the white
eye and move so that you have both eyes equally placed



Change background
colour to black and still leaving foreground null draw out a smaller circle for
the pupils



Then move the pupils
until in position you like close all layers except the eyes and merge visible



And using eye candy
4000 glass use the following settings



Bevel 3, smoothness
82, inside marquee, 30, 35, 50, 0, 50, glass colour very light grey



Lighting is 91, 34,
100, and 40, highlight white, 0, and 300



Merge visible and
then save as png....
