Starry Night

This is a very simple tutorial, just repetative.
You will need a tube of choice,
I'm using one of Alan Stevens, which I have tubed the pumpkin out of.
A sun, moon, ball, ballon etc that tube can put her arm across.
VM Natural / sparkle
Links at end of tutorial.

Open a new canvas 400 X 400 transparent.
Flood fill with black.
New layer
With selection tool, set to rectangle, draw a rectangle, like this
( make sure yo go to the very edge of canvas )

Flood fill with #800000, select none
Add a drop shadow, these settings

Add more layers and draw more rectangles, flood fill, add drop shadow, same as before.
They don't have to be perfect in size or spacing, just do your thing.
You should have something like this

Add more layers and draw rectangles across,
adding a drop shadow, with these settings

You should have some thing like this

Merge visable
Click in the large square so you have marching ants, like this

( If you find the ants are marching in other areas, then you didn't go to the very edge of canvas,
don't panic, just crop a fraction of the edge away)
Effects / VM Natural / sparkle, these settings

Select none.
Copy / paste your tubes as new layers, add drop shadows these settings

Now you can add layers for Text, copyright and watermark
Merge visable.
You can save now or go on to animation.
Duplicate this layer 3 times for a total of 4 layers.
hide duplicated layers and highlight original.
With your tube tool, find a star and set it pretty small
I'm using tj white set at 15 for large stars and 10 for smaller stars
Randomly add the stars, See my finished one for an idea.
Hide Original layer, unhide and highlight copy, add more stars
Repeat with last two layers.
Unhide all layers and save to a folder.

Open animation shop
File / open, find folder with your layers in it, highlight it and open.
Hold Ctrl key down and click A to highlight all frames.
Ive changed my speed to 23, then saved as a Gif File

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial
