Happy Easter Chick

This seems like a long tutorial, but, I have gone into detail so even those resonably new can try it
You will need my supplies posted at end of tutorial, Open all in psp
We will be saving this as we go

Open a new canvas 400 x 400 white / transparent
Its up to you, I prefer a white background
Copy / paste your basket of eggs as a new layer
Re-name this layer Basket
Effects / 3D effects / drop shadow, these settings

Copy / paste your egg as a new layer and move into place
Re-name this layer Egg

Layers Merge / merge / merge visable
Save as 1 psp image, hit the undo arrow
(Repeat from Here)
Click on raster deform tool, then on canvas
You will see your egg has a box around it with nodes
The one on the right will turn your image

Click on the centre node and drag egg down a little
then on right hand node and turn a little, like this

Click on Pan tool at top to remove box
Layer / merge / merge visable
File / save as 2 psp image
Hit Undo arrow
(repeat to here)
Keep repeating this moving down a little, turning a little and moving gradually to the right until you have this

Make sure you have hit the undo arrow
and have the egg layer highlighted
Click on your lasso tool and draw a zigzag through egg
Like this

Edit / copy, Edit paste as a new image
Hit the delete key on keyboard
Selections / select none
Highligh your Basket layer
Copy / Paste Chick as a new layer
Hide almost all of it behind the bottom part of egg

On the "new Image" top of the egg
Copy / paste as a new layer, move into place
Re-name this egg top

We are now going to use raster deform tool to move the egg top and mover tool to bring the chick out
Click on Raster deform tool and turn a little, like this

Layers / merge / merge visable
Save as your next psp image adding the correct number
Hit undo arrow
Now move it a little more
Click on mover tool and drag chick out a little
Like this

Make sure your "Egg Top" is highlighted
Repeat these steps, saving each time, until it looks like this

Highlight your chick layer, Zoom in so you can see it better
Click on your Clone tool, these settings

Right click on the yellow of chick then click on top of eye
Don't forget to save each step
repeat this until you have coloured in half the eye

Layers merge / merge visable, File save as
(I'm saving mine as 14psp image and also as 16psp image)
Hit the undo arrow
Repeat the clone and colour the rest of the eye
Layers merge / merge visable
File save as, save as the number in between
(in my case 14 and 16, so I'll save as 15

Open Animation shop
File / Animation Wizard
Follow the prompts and add all your psp images in order

I set that to 27
